Timothy Lawton, Age 14 Memorial Service Monday

Timothy James Lawton, Jr., age 14, of LaBelle passed away August 13th, 2015 in LaBelle. He was born July 16th, 2001 in Fort Myers, FL to Timothy James and Victoria Lynn (Robinson) Lawton.

Timmy is survived by his parents Timothy James and Victoria Lynn Lawton, sister: Kaitlin Lawton, paternal grandparents: Debra and Gary Steigert; maternal grandparents: June and Victor Robinson; great grandmothers: Margaretta Monnich and Carolyn Robinson; uncles: Michael Lawton (Angie) and McCloud Robinson (Sara) and many other unforgettable aunts, uncles, cousins, family members, and friends.

Timmy was baseball in the spring, football in the fall, and fishing in all the moments in between. But more than his hobbies the most telling thing about this young man was not the size of his swing on a baseball diamond but the size of his heart. To know Timmy was to experience firsthand the loving nature, quick catching wit, and humor he used to turn everyone's bad day into an unforgettable laughing fueled frenzy. Timmy used jokes, impersonations, singing, dancing, colorful words, "free sentences" or anything he could think of to make his friends and family smile.

To truly love Timmy means teaching others the joy of laughter, the importance of compassion, and the value of true friends. Timmy taught us all these precious lessons.

A memorial service will be held by the River on Monday, August 17th 2015 at 7:00 pm at the Home of Debra and Gary Steigert, 4093 CR 78 West, Fort Denaud, FL.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations be sent to Zac's Friendship House.
