Obituary

Originally a native of Iowa, Jack and Shirley his wife of nearly 59 years moved to Albany in 1968 with Firestone Tire and Rubber Co. After the plant closed, he owned and operated Palmyra Laundry for several years before "retiring". His days were filled with his volunteer work with Porterfield Church, Kiwanis, Phoebe Putney Hospital, and Meal on Wheels. "Leisure" time was spent on various projects at the homes of his children or in the flower gardens at his home. A self-described life-long "putterer", he enjoyed working on lawnmowers, irrigation systems for the gardens, and whatever projects his children or grandchildren brought him.

He is survived by his wife Shirley; his sons Chris and wife Jeanne Lawless of Leesburg and Leonard and wife Nancy Lawless of Albany; his daughter Joy and husband Phil Chapman of Atlanta; and six grandchildren Brian and wife Kelly, Wade, Caroline, Jessica, Brooks, and Dylan. He also has one surviving brother, Don and wife Jan Lawless of Washington, Iowa.
