To the Lawson Family: So sorry for your loss. Mark was a good friend and coworker,he was a kind and gentle person,I had many good times with him. He will truly be missed.

My sympathy to all of Mark's family especially to Sheila, Don and Maryeileen. Mark was such a gentle man, a special man. I always enjoyed the conversations we had when he would visit Morel Circle. Rest in peace.

I am so sorry to hear of your great loss. Recently I lost my dear mother, and found

great comfort in the Holy Bible, like at Isaiah 25 verse 8- "The Sovereign Lord will

swallow up death forever, and wipe away the tears from all faces."  Also at

Revelation 21 verse 4, we find God's promise to remove both pain and death.

To the Lawson Family,

I worked at Rockford Center where Mark was the Director of Risk Manager. Myself and many other co workers would stop by his office to chat briefly and have some candy. He kept the candy dish full of candy, all the time. I am sorry to read of his passing. I know he is no longer here on Earth, but one day you will see him again! I will pray GOD will comfort you at this difficult time.

Dear Lawson Family,

It is with much sadness that I express my sympathy over the passing of Mark.  I have had the pleasure of working and interfacing with  him on work related matters.  He had a great personality,  always ready to help and respond when needed and a true professional.    His sense of humor and warm smile will be missed.   Michael Hamilton

I was so sorry to hear of your passing. You were such a sweet guy. I can see you driving down Black Point Road in your red truck. Thanks for always waving while I waited for the bus. You will be missed. 

I've enjoyed conversations and chocolate and other snacks in Mark's office. He was always willing to have conversation no matter what he was doing. Truely missed.

Sparky you left to early. So many memories of our adventures together. Your smile, witty come backs, and your laugh. A founding member of HROA and a true Gentleman above all. A friend to many you will be deeply missed. A true brother to me, keep a seat in the pub for me.  Prayers to Shelia, Peter, and Chris and families at your time of grieving. RIP Mark Lawson from your Brother Mike Croto







To Mark's Family, I am so very sorry to hear of Mark's passing. I worked with Mark at St. Francis Hospital. We shared our love of everything Irish and Notre Dame football. We has a lot of fun together. I am so shocked and heartbroken. Our last contact was a text message on my birthday a few weeks ago. He was one of the nicest guys I have ever known. He will surely be missed. I am thinking of all of you at sad time. Karen O'Donnell Messick

I have many fond memories of our high school days that include Mark.  He was always very kind and considerate.  Our loiss is heaven's gain.  Rest in peace, Mark, in God's loving arms. 

My thoughts and prayers go out to Mark's family. I had worked with Mark for years at MLH and have so many memories of  our time there. I will miss seeing Mark when he would come to Ti for a visit.

As a former classmate of Mark, I am very saddened to hear of his passing.  When I reflect on my experiences with him, I truly believe the word gentleman and professional are top of mind.  He was a very good man who left us all too soon.  May he now go with his lord and savior in heaven.  My condolences and prayers go out to all of you.
