Ronald W. Lawson, 65 of Harmony, passed away Sunday, November 24th, at home with his family by his side. He was born September 17, 1954 in Clay County, the son of William A. Lawson and Doris M. Starr Lawson. He graduated from Van Buren High School, Class of 1973. When he was 14 years old, his grandpa Lawson taught him how to weld. Ronnie took that knowledge and turned it into Lawson Welding. They built the current location in 1977.
On November 19, 1977, Ronnie was united in marriage to Debra Wiram Lawson. Together they raised their four children in Harmony.
Ronnie was a generous man with his talent as a welder. He donated time and talent to the Northview Marching Knights, Clay County 4-H, many churches and other schools that need special help.
He was a member of Ducks Unlimited and enjoyed yearly trips to Canada to hunt and fish. He also enjoyed fishing here locally with his close friends and family. Family was very important to Ron and he made it a point to attend as many events his grandchildren were participating in, no matter how he was feeling. He was devoted to Debbie, the kids and grandkids.
He was preceded in death by his parents, William and Doris Lawson.
Survivors include his wife Debbie Lawson; children, Breanne House and husband Steve, Brandon Lawson and wife Crissy, Brittany Milner and husband Jason and Brett Lawson and wife Kelsey; grandchildren, Carly Parker (Eric), Bailey Heald (Grant), Allison Pell, Brodie Lawson, Shaylyn House, Lily House, Sadey House, and Mason Lawson; one sister Janet Eaglin (Brad); two brothers Mike Lawson, and Jim Lawson (Joni); many nieces, nephews and a large extended family.
