Russell “Russ” Edward Lawson May 4, 1943 - July 9, 2021

Russell “Russ” Edward Lawson, born May 4th, 1943, passed away on July 9th, 2021 at the age of 78, in his hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio. His battle with serious medical issues in recent years showed his courage facing difficult life challenges with a smile. Russell came out a hero and stayed strong until the end. He was a jack of all trades and always willing to help those that needed him. Russell enjoyed wood working, sewing and making quilts, fishing, going to the flea market with his brother, going to his favorite place, Alms Park, and hanging out with friends, just enjoying a cup of coffee. He was preceded in death by his late wife Janice {Arp}. Russell is survived by his son Kevin R. Lawson (Lucinda); his brothers Harold Lawson Jr. (Linda) and James Lawson (Regina); his sister Diana Evans (Rick); and many nieces and nephews, with a special thanks to Crystal and John Driscoll for the many things they did for Russell in his final years.
Visitation will be held on Thursday, July 15, from 5pm until 6pm at Fares J. Radel Funeral Home-Kellogg. Memorial Service will follow on Thursday at the funeral home at 6pm.
