 The Funeral Service for Mr. Richard William Lawless will be held Saturdy, October 20, 2018 at 2:00 at Inspirational Church By Faith, 714 Adderton Street, Americus Georgia with Pastor Zebedee Westen officiating. Visitation is from 1:00 -2:00 at the church.

Richard W. Lawless passed away peacefully at the age of 74. He was the youngest of Virginia Lawless and Hershell Layfield's four children. He was preceded in death by his parents. In 2009, Richard retired from Ricky's Oil Company after thirty-nine years of service. Shortly after retirement, he relocated from Miami, Florida to Americus, Georgia. He was a loving father and devoted grandparent. His life became centered around helping to take care of his grandson Tristan (who calls him Papa). Richard had a giving heart and an uplifting spirit which made him a joy to be around.

Richard was cherished by many as a father figure and uncle. He was a simple man who celebrated life and would not want us to mourn him. He will be missed by many but not forgotten. Left to cherish his memories are his wife of thirty-eight years, Roselyn W. Lawless; children: Richard C. Lawless and Anethra M. Adderley; grandchildren: Demetrius L. Gurley and Tristan A. Waters; siblings: Edward A. Lawless and Ellen L. Hoffman; and many beloved friends.

I would like to send my condolences to the family of Mr Lawless. I know losing someone you love in death is very sad but we can all take comfort from the scriptures where it tell us that the almighty God will do away with all things that causes pain and suffering even death (Rev.21:3,4)I am so sorry for your loss
