Timothy Peter Lawes saw fit to depart this earth on July 31, 2018, after waging a recent battle with illness as well as a lifelong battle with slow drivers on the road. His wife and companion of 33 years, Erin, preceded him on May 18, 2018. They have now been reunited.
Tim worked his entire career at Astra Zeneca and was supported by dedicated coworkers who remained loyal to the end, visiting Tim frequently during his final days, which is a testament for their devotion to him and the love he had for them. He will be remembered fondly at work for his dedication and sense of fairness.
Tim has gone ahead of his family who continue their earthly sojourn. He is survived by a son Padraic, daughter-in-law Julia, grandchildren Cameron and Eloise, and son Liam and his fiancée, Ryan, as well as his father, Bernard, mother, Patricia, and nine siblings: Jocelyn, Lorelei, Gregory, Andrew, Heather, Alex, Holly, Ivy, and Jen, and all their spouses. As well, Tim will be missed by Erin’s family including her father Dale, mother Jo, and her siblings, Caitlin, Megan, and Padraic, along with countless nieces and nephews.
Tim will be loved and remembered fondly for his feisty temperament as well as a tender compassion. “Tim” stories will continue to be told (many of them featuring Tim’s signature tagline, “Don’t tell mom”) and hearty laughs will ensue. He will be missed, but never forgotten. May he rest in peace.
In lieu of flowers, to honor Tim’s life, a donation may be made to the Fidelity college funds for his grandchildren Cameron and Eloise, whom he loved dearly. Links are provided below:
