Tim Lawless, of Rosenberg Texas, formally of Needville, passed away on Wednesday, August 22, 2018, at his home at the age of 80 years.
Tim was born in Groesbeck, Texas, on December 19, 1937 to Marion Everett “Tim” and Hattie Royall Lawless. He graduated from Groesbeck High School in 1956. After graduation, Tim joined the Texas Army National Guard, where he served for 3 years.
Later, Tim moved to Alvin, where he met Wanda. Tim and Wanda were married in a very small ceremony. They were married in the back room of a boat store with only a witness and his dog! They began their life together in Alvin and later moved to Houston. Tim spent many hours hunting ducks, doves and squirrels with his Dad.
In 1979, Tim and Wanda added to the family of 5 with a baby boy (Mikey). Then, in 1980, Tim and Wanda purchased property and planted family roots in Needville, Texas. They continued to live in Needville until 2008, when they moved back to Groesbeck for some time. Tim loved Groesbeck and being close to his sister, Ann. He also loved being a Groesbeck Goat! He attended many high school reunions and homecoming parades throughout the years.
Tim loved spending time with his family and friends. He always had a smile and open heart ready for us. He was such a gentle, patient man and truly loved us unconditionally. He attended many events in his children and grandchildren’s lives. He had so much pride in this family that he and Wanda created.
Tim will be greatly missed by many and we take great comfort in knowing that he is watching over us and will continue to guide us as we follow the example he set for us.
Tim “Timmie” will be sadly missed by his wife of 41 years, Wanda Richmond Lawless as well as his sister, Ann Lawless Gates.
