Steven (Steve) Marc Lawrence passed away at his home with his family by his side on November 9, 2015 after a short but hard fought battle with cancer. Born on July 19, 1949 he was just 66 years old. Steve is survived by his loving wife of 29 years Maureen, his son Matthew and daughter Corey Garman. He was the oldest son of Clifford and Carole Lawrence.
Steve moved to Mendocino County in 1986 and worked at various jobs in the wine industry including many years at Fetzer Vineyards and Redwood Valley Cellars. The last 16 years he was employed by the United States Postal Service as a clerk in the Willits Post Office. He became part of the Willits Postal family. Throughout his illness the postal family never stopped sending cards, flowers and gifts that certainly brightened his day until the very end. He knew that he was always in their thoughts and prayers.
Steve was proud to be an Army veteran and served in the Vietnam War during 1968 and 1969. Steves family would like to give a special thanks for all the help he received from the VAs Ukiah Clinic and the teams of doctors and nurses from the San Francisco VA hospital. We would also like to thank the staff at Dr. Wangs office (Shannon, Rea, and Janice) for taking such good care of him during this very difficult time.
Steve was an avid golfer and loved to go to the Ukiah Golf Course whenever he could get there. He was a member of the Ukiah Mens Golf Club and loved going to the golf dinners once a month. He loved the comradery of being with his fellow golfers. He was also a member of the Duffers Club for many years.
When Steve wasnt working or golfing he was in the backyard of his home planting and tending to his other passion his gardening. His garden was his pride and joy, as was taking care of his cat Mister.
