Obituary of William A. Lawler

William A. Lawler’s Heavenly Father has called him home!

 

William A. Lawler, age 87 from Adrian, Michigan, died April 7, 2020, at Hospice in Florida where he was living in Port St. Lucie with his daughter, Diane. He was born August 30, 1932, in Haleyville, Alabama to James A. and Ollie (Robertson) Lawler. He married Marilyn E. Henry on April 17, 1954, in Adrian and she preceded him in death in 2005. William was employed by Ford Motor Co. in Maumee, Ohio until he retired. He was a member of Bethany Assembly of God in Adrian for many years, a member of the NRA and enjoyed hunting and fishing. He has lived in Alabama, Michigan, California, Tennessee, and recently Florida. His greatest joy was his grandchildren.

 

William is survived by a son, Randall Lawler (Monica) of Phoenix, AZ; two daughters, Diane (Robert) Feltman of Port Saint Lucie, FL, and Sheila (Marco) Wheaton of Adrian; a brother, Donald Lawler of Bear Creek, AL; 7 grandchildren; 17 great grandchildren; and his ex-wife Lauretta Niles. William was preceded in death by his wife Marilyn, his parents, two brothers, four brothers-in-law, and four sisters-in-law.

He was a friend to all. His storytelling and laughter was enjoyed by many.
