He will be remembered as a loving husband, father, grandfather and brother. He was self-employed in the construction excavating field and as co-owner in the Lawson Brothers Ready-Mix Company in Hendersonville, TN. Due to his construction work, Pete traveled often. His wife would join him and together they would visit nearby state attractions. He was a bowler, he coached his son's baseball team and after moving to Hendersonville, he and his wife played in a local pinochle group and played on a doubles tennis team. Pete also owned a sailboat and enjoyed sailing.

Pete had an infectious sense of humor. His family was the most important thing to him and frequently made his three grandchildren the topic of his stories. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
