Paul Matthews Lawrence returned to his Heavenly Father on Jan. 5, 2014, at 8:57 a.m., in Issaquah.
He was born in Evanston, Wyoming, on Aug. 13, 1960, to David Elmer Lawrence and Karen Blanche Matthews Lawrence. In his youth, he lived in Big Piney, Wyoming, where his father was working in the oil industry.
He loved the outdoors and the various seasons. The big blue skies when the snow came was one of his favorite times of the year. The close community environment was what helped him to develop his love of people and the importance of giving to family, friends and neighbors.
