September 17, 1938 - September 13, 2016


Edward ‘Ed’ Lawton, formally of Fruitvale, BC, passed away on September 13, 2016, in Powell River. He was born on September 17, 1938.

Ed is survived by his wife of 49 years Edith, son David (Shelly) Lawton, daughter Roseann (Dan) Dupuis, grandsons Brian (Amanda) Lawton, Dave (Tia) Lawton, Mathew Lawton, Micheal Lawton, Lucas Dupuis and Andy Dupuis, great-grandson’s Jacob, Waylen, Casen and Benjamin and dogs Patches, Bruno and Lady.

Ed was a caring husband, father, grandfather, uncle, great-grandfather and friend. He was preceded in death by his son Christopher, sisters Rose-Mary and Lucy and brother David.
Ed was active in politics in Fruitvale for more than 20 years. He participated in bowling, golf, curling and cross-country skiing. He moved to Powell River in 2010 to be closer to Roseann and her family.

Ed spent the last few years battling Parkinson's disease and in the end he grew tired of the fight.

We would like to give a big thank-you to the fourth floor nurses and support staff at Powell River General Hospital for treating our dad with respect and kindness. Thank you to the home support workers who came to the house to take care of our dad as well.

A celebration of life will take place at 1 pm on Saturday, October 15, at Fruitvale Hall, 1968 Main Street, Fruitvale.
