Larry's greatest passions were his family and friends, his country, football, fishing, dogs and babies. With a wicked sense of humor and his genuine kindness, he made all who knew him love and adore him. Mr. Lawson spent most of his life in the casino industry as a dealer, pit boss and casino manager from Laughlin to Reno, and worked also for many years in Cripple Creek, Colo.

He has also left behind his domestic partner, Laura Lilly and his "step-step" daughter, Cathy Lilly, both of Crystal Nev. His memory will always be cherished in their hearts. His two precious dogs, "Kona" and "Sophie" will be forever waiting for him to return home. Larry was preceded in death by his parents, John E. Lawson, Pauline Bays Lawson; his sister,Betty Lou Biggs; and beloved wife of 40 years, Nancy Turock Lawson.
