William Charles Lawhun, Sr.

Born: 06/13/1932 Passed:

William Charles Lawhun, Sr., age 89, went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Saturday December 4th, 2021 at Cleveland Clinic Mercy Hospital surrounded by his family after a short, but courageous battle with Covid-19.

William was born June 13th, 1932, in Greenup,Kentucky to the late Forrest and Sylvania (Royster) Lawhun.

William was a strong-willed, honest, and hardworking man who always had a fun and interesting story about his past to share. He spent many years working in the landscaping business and later as a tire salesman. William worked in some capacity until he was 86 years old and only stopped because of his wife’s declining health. When not working, you could find William watching the Cleveland Indians, Browns or Cavs.

Besides his parents he is preceded in death by his beloved wife, Louise who passed in 2020; daughter, Patricia; brothers, Gene, Bert, Delbert, Brady, Jim, and John; sisters, Lillian, Hester; and son-in-law, Jeffrey Bowdle.

William will be missed by all who loved him, especially his children, Billy, Debra, Michael (Mary Alice), Barb (Gary), Eric (Kristen), Harrison (Jennifer) and Misty. He is also survived by sisters, Esther and Thelma, several cherished grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.

It was William’s wish not to have a funeral. He will be cremated and there will be a gathering for family and friends later.

The family wishes to thank the wonderful doctors, nurses and staff at Cleveland Clinic Mercy Hospital who gave him exceptional care and comfort in his last days as well as the amazing nurses, aides and staff at Altercare of Louisville where he had been residing the last several months.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital, a charity that William and his wife supported for many years.
