Bill Lawton broke the mold on what a man was supposed to be. Kind hearted and generous. Quiet, but an incredible presence, he was a rock for his wife and girls. He truly was a family man. He enjoyed camping with his family, watching the Pats and never missed his grandkids’ games or shows. He took pride in caring for his yard and working for the Hingham School Dept. for 27 years. He was a member of the Holy Nativity Church.
Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to a memorial service in honor of Bill at the Holy Nativity Church located at 8 Nevin Rd. in S. Weymouth on Saturday, December 30th at 11 AM.
In lieu of flowers the family prefers donations be made in Bill’s memory to the Holy Nativity Church. 8 Nevin Rd. S. Weymouth, MA 02190.
