Edward A. Lawrence
Edward Andrew Lawrence, 40, passed away on April 13, 2011 at Lake Limerick. Ed was born on September 24, 1970 in Washington, Pennsylvania to Anthony and Mary (Danko) Lawrence.
He graduated from Shelton High School. Edward worked for a number of years for Costco and also owned and operated the former Railroad Ave. Antique Store. For the last five years, he has been employed by S & M Builders. Ed was a member of the Eagles. His hobbies included woodworking, pool, darts, camping, fishing, boating and playing dominoes. His family shared that he was a workaholic, very energetic and was an artist with wood. He did chainsaw carvings and also loved to cook; creating his own recipes that may have seemed odd but were delicious. They also spoke of how he loved animals and would often take in strays. He was the type of man that would give anyone the shirt off his back, always loyal, honest and dependable as well as fun. He enjoyed spending time with his children and grandchildren, taking them on rides on his quads and tractors.
Survivors include his wife, Stefanie, Shelton; daughters, Rebecca (Stephan) Sorg and Emily Sorg (Nick Hanson), both of Shelton; son, Clinton “CJ” Sorg, Shelton; grandchildren, Timothy, Thomas, Robert, and Christopher; nieces, Hailey Marchesino and Jasmine Morey, both of Olympia; extended family, Frank Weeks, Marty Weeks, Julia Weeks, Kyleigh Gray and Sandy Strandwold. Edward was preceded in death by his parents, sister Michelle and stepdad Ed Gates.
A celebration of his life will be held at Lake Limerick Country Club on Sunday, May 22, 2011 at 6:00 pm. A memorial fund has been set up at Our Community Credit Union, 526 W. Cedar St. Shelton, WA.
