Remembering Dan Lawson
The Factory Five Community Gathers to Say Farewell to a Favorite Son


I spoke to Dan Lawson’s brother Bob yesterday evening.  He asked that I release information about a memorial service to be held this coming Saturday.  All are welcome and I hope there is a good turnout from everyone in the Factory Five Community.  If you cannot be there, you can forward your condolences to one of the addresses listed below.

The service will be held at 11:00 am at the Jubilee Christian Center

If you would like to make a donation, Kelly Lawson (Dan’s Daughter) said the family has selected a charity in Dan’s honor.  Please send donations to the St Jude Children’s Hospital on behalf of Dan Lawson at

Following the ceremony, Dan's family will have a gathering back at his house with food and drinks for everyone. Kelly and her mom are preparing for several hundred people and wanted everyone to know that they are welcome to attend. I will personally attend the ceremony and be at Dan's house afterwards. I can’t imagine a better tribute to Dan than what I have read on the forums, but hope that Saturday will be a continuing of the outpouring of love and support for Dan’s family during this difficult time.


I have searched for images of Dan and am posting them here for all of you to remember what a great guy he was.  All of these images (and others) were forwarded to the Lawson family.

If you knew Dan for five minutes, you knew him as a friend.  I hope as many of you as possible can join me and the FFR community to be there for the Lawson family this Saturday.
