Terrence Robert Lawson
August 28th, 1948 - Tuesday, March 10th, 2020

It is with great sadness that the family of Terrence Robert Lawson (Terry) announces his passing on March 10, 2020 after a long and courageous battle with cancer.

Terry was predeceased by his wife of 38 years Lorraine Lawson in 2010, his mother Lillian Lawson in 2006, and his father Ivan Lawson in 1993.

Terry is survived by and will be greatly missed by his wife Barbara Lawson of Calgary, AB, and his family:
son Richard (Maureen) of Winnipeg, MB and grandkids Jillian (Geremie), Jodelle, Rylan, and Teron; son Richmond (Jodi) of Winnipeg, MB and grandkids Jason, Jordan, Nikita (JP), Jesse, and Randee; daughter Kim (Tim) of Morden, MB and grandkids Taggart, Levi, and Jayne; daughter Debbie (Graham) of Winnipeg, MB and grandkids Zander, Mia, and Lucas; daughter Robbie of Brandon, MB and grandkids Shelby, Kora, and Spencer; son Bradley of Westlock, AB and grandkids Quinton, Haden, and Degan; stepdaughter Karen of Calgary, AB; two great-grandkids Bella and Asher; sisters Noreen of Strathmore, AB, Winnifred "Fred" (Greg) of Carstairs, AB, Karen Ann (Earl) of Sanford, MB, and Ivy (Larry) of Winnipeg, MB; aunt Ester of Killarny, MB; and numerous nieces and nephews. Terry will also be missed by his many friends and co-workers.

Terry loved to spend time with his kids and grandkids every chance he could.

He spent most of his years working for John Deere Dealers, first as a heavy equipment mechanic and then as a service manager in Killarney, MB and then Athabasca, AB.

After his move to Calgary, AB, Terry went to work for Cervus Equipment as a parts technician where he was still employed when he passed.

Terry was also a volunteer firefighter for 7 years in Killarney, MB, and for 9 years in Athabasca, AB where he also took his EMT training. He retired from firefighting as a fire chief when he moved to Calgary. He loved being a firefighter and missed it until the day he passed.

For the last 7 years Terry spent every weekend at Eagle Lake RV Park with his Eagle Lake family, where he loved to fuss with the fountains and decorate his site, watch the birds, and take millions of pictures.

Terry will be missed so very much, by so many,

His family would like to thank everyone at the Tom Baker Cancer Center for all of their help fighting his cancer over the last 7 years, and their palliative care nurses who were so kind and caring.

We would also like to thank everyone on Unit 43 of the Peter Lougheed Hospital for looking after him so well when he was there, and their palliative team.

Also a very special thank you to everyone at Chinook Hospice for their exceptional caring and kindness to both Terry and myself, and all the great hugs.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Tom Baker Cancer Center.

A Celebration of Life for Terry will be held in St. Malo, Manitoba at the end of August.

Rest in Peace mate.... were goanna miss you round here. Have a chat with the fella in charge up their, and get him to bring back your mould will ya! They sure don't make men like they used to, like we've talked so many time's. Say Gday to Gordy for us all, and the pair of you will run the best darn John Deere Parts department up there.

Your seat at the JD table and your counter will always be a special place for me and I miss seeing you their. We've had lots of good chats and laughs round it. The kids will miss your generosity, and persuasion, however my wallet wont :) not sure whos gonna force me to buy all those toys now.

Your strength, courage, determination and positive outlook on life has left an admirable mark on me. I've never met a tougher man, that near darn cut his thumb off, can have chemo treatment and keeps getting up and showing up. Your a tough old SOB and like I've said many times, your mould is broke.

Your smile and witty persona, will be missed.

To the Lawson Family, you've lost a bloody good Man, Son, Grandpa, Dad, Brother and Husband. Our thoughts are with you all.

You didn't stick to our agreement mate but you gave her heck.. The man upstairs had different plans.

Love you mate and will miss you.
