He was a parishioner of Saints Peter and Paul Church and spent countless hours volunteering at Holy Land assisting the Sisters of Fillipi with general maintenance around the complex.

In addition, he leaves his grandchildren; Caitlin, Kyle, Daniel, Matthew, Kelsey, Joey, Emily and Brooke, his step grandchildren, Amber, Courtney, Kelci and Felicia. He also leaves his nieces, Domenica Lawson, and Georgeann Sprague. William also leaves his longtime companion Ann Koval and her daughter Michelle in addition to aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and other extended family. William was predeceased by his former wife Patricia (Keeley) Lawson and his brother Edward Lawson.

William’s family would like to thank and acknowledge their father’s caregiver Norma, for the tireless and devoted care she provided to him during his illness. In addition they would also like to thank the doctors and staff at Vitas Hospice.
