Obituary of Peter Lawton

Peter James Lawton, age 62, resident of Richland lost his battle with cancer on July 7, 2019. Peter was born October 3, 1956 to Robert and Charlotte Klein Lawton. He graduated from Pulaski High School in 1974 and served in the United States Army and was stationed at Fort Bragg, NC. Peter married Maureen Gorman on September 28, 2005. He was a jack-of-all trades and a roofer for many years. Flying ultralights was his passion and he also enjoyed birdwatching.


Surviving, are his wife, Maureen, two children, Peter Michael (Vicki) Lawton and Michelle (CJ) Preeman, three grandchildren, Mason, Natalie, and Arriana Preeman all of Florida, two sisters, Linda (Bruce) Gilbert of Pulaski and Lori Lawton of Lacona and his parents. He was predeceased by his brother, David Lawton.


No services will be held. Peter donated his body to science so that we might find a cure for this horrible disease. Join “Pete’s Pals” Facebook page for updated information on a celebration of life, fly-over ceremony.
