William Christopher Lawrence

1/1/1980 - 8/13/2017

William was born in Albuquerque, N.M., but grew up mostly in California.

Mariposa has been his home for many years. He loved living in the mountains. He enjoyed fishing, panning for gold, camping, and was a member of the Clampers. He was definitely the family caretaker, taking care of his sister, step dad and people in his community that didn’t have help.

Will is survived by his mother and step father, Bonnie and Mark Newman, Mariposa; his father and step mother, William and Sandy Lawrence, Los Banos; his wife Shannon Nutt; five children, Hope Lawrence, Kayla Lawrence, Ashlyn Nutt, Will Lawrence Jr. and Abbygail Lawrence, all of Mariposa; seven sisters, Crystal, Jennifer, Misty, Tissy, Ashley, Becca and Dana; three brothers, Albert, John and James; as well as 12 nieces, 14 nephews and 10 great nieces.

Will loved his children and family so very much and will be greatly missed. His family and friends adored his company through love and sarcasm.

There will be a memorial service on Saturday, Aug. 26 at 1 p.m. at New Life Christian Fellowship, 5089 Cole Rd. Mariposa, Calif. There will be a celebration immediately after hosted by the Clampers and Widders at The Airport Bar and Grill, located at 6065 Highway 49 North in Mariposa.
