Douglas Holway Lawrance passed away on April 29th after a brief illness. He was the loving husband of Janet (Baillie), adored dad of Abbeth and Rhys, and loving and supportive step dad to Carly; dear brother of Chuck, Lynn and Mark (Jan) and uncle of Erin, Devin, Scott, Ken and Joe. He is preceded in death by his parents, sister Sue and nephew Will.
Born in Indianapolis, IN on December 10, 1956 to William and Bonita Lawrance, he graduated from North Central HS in 1975 and earned his degree in Electronics Engineering from ITT Technical School. He worked for IBM, Agilysys, Inc/ Tolt Solutions, and most recently Mainstreet, Inc. Although Doug’s title was typically Systems Engineer, in reality he was the “go-to guy” wherever he went.
Doug was incredibly witty, kind, loyal and giving. There was virtually nothing Doug couldn’t fix or do. He enjoyed working, playing, collecting and/or tinkering with anything electronic, especially computers and amplifiers, bikes, cars, motorcycles, music, guns and guitars.
Services will be held at 12 noon on Tuesday, May 10 at Shannon Rose Hill Chapel & Cemetery, 7301 E. Lancaster, Fort Worth.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions be made in Doug’s memory to the “Will Lawrance Legacy Art Fund”, c/o The Advancement Center, 8550 Woodfield Crossing Boulevard, Indianapolis, IN 46240 or online www.AdvancementCenterwts.org, by clicking “Donate Now”, and selecting the “Will Lawrance Legacy Art Fund” in fund designation.
