It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mentor and founder, T. R. Lawing, Sr. Mr. Lawing was 86 years old.
From tinkering on his Model A to building a summer cottage, from leading BSA Troop 5 to organizing reunions of his Central High School classmates, from camping across America with his family to singing in his church’s choir, from building his own company to catching a t-shirt at last week’s Knights’ ballgame, our he lived a full and rich life. He met his childhood sweetheart, Catherine at Piedmont Middle School and they enjoyed 63 years of marriage until she passed away in 2011. Together they raised 3 bright and wonderful children.
Mr Lawing is survived by 2 children, 6 grandchildren, 14 great grandchildren and 9 sons- and daughters-in-law.
A service to celebrate Dad’s life will be this Monday, August 18, at 11:00 am at Hawthorne Lane United Methodist Church, 501 Hawthorne Lane, Charlotte, NC 28204. Dr. Tom Steagald will officiate and the Chancel Choir will provide the music.
T. R. Lawing Realty will be closed on Monday from 10:30 until 12:00 noon in memory of our founder, T. R. Lawing, Sr.
The family appreciates many words of sympathy which have already been received and only ask that everyone keep our families in your thoughts and prayers
