Obituary of Gordon Lawson

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Gord Lawson of Dyers Bay on Saturday, November 21, 2020.  Gord Lawson was the beloved husband of Edith (nee POTTS) for 35 years. He was the cherished father of Jake and his wife Emily of Collingwood and Jenna Lawson of Sandy Lake First Nation.  He was the dear brother of Paul and his wife Audrey of Sand Point and Mary Lou Ayoub and her partner Sam of Ottawa and brother-in-law of Sarah Elliott (Keith) of Big Bay, Michael Potts (Cheryl) of Ignace and Peter Potts (Kathleen) of Waterloo.


He was predeceased by his loving parents Bernice (nee Watson) and Ted Lawson and sisters-in-law Jean Lee (Bruce) and Maria Potts.


He lived in, loved deeply, and contributed daily to the community of Dyers Bay. Gord was “Gordie” to most. He was a loving uncle to many nieces and nephews and he always had a warm hug or a listening ear for them. Gord's generosity had no limits.  He thoroughly enjoyed his work in helping many home owners see their dreams through.  Gord was always there to lend a helping hand whenever someone was in need and he will be remembered with love by the many people whose lives he touched.
