William Christopher Lawson

Sep 28, 1960 - Feb 25, 2024

We sadly announce the passing of William after succumbing to cancer.

He is pre-deceased by his parents William G. Lawson and Rita Moir and his half-brother Gerald
Nichol. William is survived by his sister Ann (Greg) Fox and three nieces.
The family would like to thank all of the many medical professionals who helped William along
his journey especially Dr. Hacker and the staff at the Ruddy-Shenkman Hospice.

Special thanks go to his most wonderful friends and support team at home, Cathy and Brian
for their love, understanding and unwavering dedication to William.

William’s wishes were for no celebrations and they are being honoured. Memorial donations to
the Ruddy-Shenkman Hospice in his name are appreciated.

    I only got to know Will for the last 2 years. We met working at IKEA and slowly became good friends before he got diagnosed, after he was no longer able to work we stayed in touch and Will taught me to drive. I only wish I had met him sooner so that we couldve had more time together, but Im glad he is no longer suffering.

    The neighbourhood won’t be the same without you, William. I hope you’re in a better place, free of pain and hanging out on a sunny deck.

    I grew up on Lawn Avenue and William was one of the gang of kids in our tiny stretch of connected backyards. I have now lived across the street as his neighbour again for 26 years. I miss his friendly wave, his easy smile and his beautiful dogs. Condolences to his family and close friends. Godspeed and RIP, William.

    For 30 years William you lived 100 feet from Cathy and I. I remember so many great times that we spent together telling stories and laughing so hard I thought that the police would show up. I think fondly of the hours that the three of us would spend listening to your music. You and Cathy talking and laughing in the kitchen and me in the living room dancing like a fool to an awesome song that you would play for me. Thank you so much for exposing me to some incredible music that I had no idea even existed.

    William I’m so sorry that you had to suffer as much as you did. I miss you like a brother and I will never forget you.
