LAWSON, Ronald, M., 56, of Summerville Centre, Queens County, passed away suddenly Wednesday, January 20th, 2010 in Queens General Hospital, Liverpool.
Born in Liverpool, he was a son of Amy (Hupman) Lawson of Summerville Centre and the late Murray Lawson.
Ron grew up in Summerville Centre and attended Port Mouton School and Liverpool Regional High School. At an early age, Ron knew his passion was fire fighting and working in the woods. Following his graduation from L.R.H.S., he worked with a survey crew in New Brunswick prior to attending the Maritime Forest Ranger School in New Brunswick where he graduated in 1974. After his graduation, he started work with the Department of Natural Resources in Nova Scotia. In the Spring of ‘75, he formed the Junior Forest Warden Organization. Ron was employed with the Department of Natural Resources for thirty years retiring in 2004 as supervisor for Lunenburg and Queens Counties. In 2006, he was presented with the Neil Wilcox Forest Fire Service Award for outstanding contribution to Forest Fire Management in Nova Scotia.
In his spare time, Ron was a member of the Liverpool Baseball club and treasurer of bingo and a fund raiser for the Danny Seaman field. He was president of the Mersey Athletic Association and was a former minor hockey coach. He served as president for the Hunt’s Point Association as well as a trustee for Port Mouton School and Liverpool Junior High School and played in the band “Sandy Road”. Following his retirement, Ron did property management. He will be fondly remembered as a true family man but equally as much for the saying “Keep off the Grass!”
Surviving besides his mother are his wife Betty Jean (Fox); daughter Kelly (Curtis) Croft of Ottawa, son Ryan (Kass) of Edmonton. Grandchildren Chloe and Wyatt Croft. Sister Laura (Steve) Dobson of Dartmouth. Brothers Raymond (Janelle) of Prince Rupert, BC and Daniel of Port Hope, ON.
He was predeceased by his niece Amy Dobson.
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Chandlers’ Funeral Home, Liverpool where a funeral service will be held Monday, January 25th, 2010 at 11:00 a.m.. Reverend Jennifer Garbin officiating. Burial will be at a later date. No flowers by request. Donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Nova Scotia, the Liverpool Baseball Club or to any charity. Online condolences may be made to www.chandlersfuneral.com.
Offer Condolence for the family of Lawson, RonPrint Obituary & Condolences
BETTY JEAN,SO SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS,I ENJOYED MY VISITS WITH RONNIE ,HE WAS A WONDERFUL FRIEND.
I am so very sorry to hear about Ron, as is everyone I’ve spoken with today. The community is in shock. I last spoke with him just a few weeks ago, when I was lost… looking for a driveway… and he appeared out of nowhere and set me straight. We chuckled that, after all these years, anyone could get lost in Summerville. That will be my memory of Ron, laughing, as he walked away.
Warm and heartfelt thoughts are with you all.

I was so deeply shocked at the news from Mom about Ron’s sudden passing. I have so many fond childhood memories of time spent with my cousin Ron as we played Forest Ranger games behind your home and understood why he later took this on as his chosen profession, achieving great success and recognition.

Extremely sad to have heard the news about Ron. .

Please accept my deepest sympathies on your loss.

Thinking of you.
What a shock it was when I learned of Ron’s sudden and far too soon passing. He gave so much in so many ways to his family, friends, work and to his community, and Ron still had so much to give.
“Only the good die young” and that couldn’t be truer in Ron’s instance.

I am so sorry for your loss- Ron was a great guy- I remember he was always trying to keep Danny on the straight and narrow back in high school- it used to make Dan nuts! Eventually, I’m sure he realized it was because Ron loved him, but at the time… We laugh now- age makes the memories sweeter and funnier! Ron was a truly “nice” man- and there are only a few of those left- he will be sorely missed!
Debbie (Verge) Godfrey
So very sorry for your loss …. Ron will always be remebered for his great sense of humor, ability to converse with anyone regardless of age or gender and always having time to enjoy a cup of tea. He touched the hearts of many and will be missed.
I think back on my years in Summerville very fondly, and he was a big part of them. I will never forget him and Steve strumming their guitars and singing “I’ll fly away”.

Betty Jean, Ryan and Kelly. Valerie and I are so very saddened to hear of your sudden loss. I know at this time with Rons passing, it is so hard to find words comforting. Ronnie was a very dedicated worker with DNR and I can say it was my pleasure working with him at the Milton office.

He spoke often about family indicating his dedication and love for you all.
Our prayers are with you and your family.
Betty Jean, Amy and family – I am so very, very sorry for your loss. Ron has helped me and my family so much over the years.

Ron was a man who gave a great deal back to the world and always tried to make it a better place. I was one of Ron’s “Junior Forest Warden’s”, where he made us proud to wear the Red Shirt with the bright white lanyard. But what was more important, he taught us about converstion of the forest and environment and instilled values in teenagers that would carry on through life. He gave service to his fellow persons. Thank you Ron for all that you did.
We would like to express our condolences and deepest sympathy to the family of Ron.
May the Blessings be

Jamie & Laurie-Anne Brown
Kelly & Family,
We are both very sorry to have heard this news. Ronnie will be greatly missed in the community. I know he was a inspiration to Jamie in his career with Dept of Natural Resources and really extended himself to help Jamie in his career, and for that we are forever grateful. I can remember in grade 9 we had career day and he was a speaker for Dept of Natural Resources, and I listened to him talk about animals, forest fires, the woods etc…and he was so excited, I remember thinking, I’d like to do that when I grow up…I followed that and went to school and got my diploma in that field and met my husband the ‘forest technician’ as well, so I can honestly say that he played a pretty big role in my future fate….I wished I had have told him that story when I had the chance at all the DNR functions, but I know that Jamie was always forever grateful to him for his help and inspiration…he was a good man, and I’m deeply sorry for your loss.
Kind Regards. Jamie and Laurie-Anne Brown
Betty Jean.You don’t know me,but i’m the one who gave you the picture of the boys drinking coffee,at Tim Horten’s.I also gave them each a bag with some goodies, for every occasion in it,after Halloween,as they said i gave all the kid’s and didn’t give them,so this was the joke i played on them,and the red wrapped chocolate was for the wives.Ron was a great guy from what i knew of him the last years.You and your family will always miss him.It don’t seem right for him to die at such a young age.He was a good family man.May God bless you and your family,and help you through this saddness.

We were stunned to hear from you of the passing of Ron. We are deeply grieved, because we grew to know and love him through a very few short years through his ready helpfulness, his straightforward objective advice when consulted, his simple expressions to us of his fondness for his own family members, and his down to business, but caring, attitude combined with a wry sense of humor when he responded to us and our needs..
We are very, very sorry, Berry Jean and family of Ron.

My condolenses to his wife and family.
To Betty Jean & Family,
Sorry to hear of Ron’s passing. I worked with Ron at Lands & Forest back in the early 80’s for about six years. I had great respect for him, as he was a good man and a great man to work with. He will be missed by many.

I met Ron in the early 70’s when he was a member of Sandy Road. He made an impression on me as I have never forgotten him. He was such a nice person, even back then when we were still bratty teenagers who knew everything! I am so sorry for your loss. It sounds like he made some incredible contributions during his relatively short life.
