David George Lawrence, 73, of Daniel Island, South Carolina passed away on the Fifteenth of April, Two Thousand Twenty-One.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Eben Benjamin and Beverly Jarvis Lawrence.
David is survived by his wife of nearly fifty years, Anne "Honey" Lawrence, his daughters Tyler (Dean) Lawrence Bradley of Marietta, Georgia, and Merideth Lawrence Rath of Daniel Island, South Carolina, his adored granddaughter, Henley Rath, and gentlemen grandsons, Hubbell Lawrence Bradley and Redford Cooper Bradley, and his sister Sandy (Joseph) Lawrence Foster of Fairfax, Virginia.
While David was born in Warren, Ohio, he truly "lived" in the South, enjoying his life in Athens and Marietta, Georgia and Charleston, South Carolina. He was a graduate of Athens High School, and the University of Georgia, and a "Damn Good Dawg."
For over fifty years he led a distinguished career in Fine Menswear. David was only comfortable in a freshly starched shirt and dress pants, accompanied by Gucci Croc Loafers, no socks. He is a member of the "Old Friends Society." David represented some of the finest menswear labels including Hathaway, Christian Dior, Pierre Cardin, Burberry's of London, Aquascutum of London, Henry Jacobson, Fairway and Green, Peter Blair, Robert Jensen, Hickey Freeman, Nettleton, Drake's of London, House of Carrington, and Southwick.
While David's work took him to New York, London and Paris, he extensively traveled the South East. He had a talent of knowing where each Dairy Queen was located and never met a Varsity hot dog he did not love.
As a younger gentleman his life was consumed with his wife and two daughters. David made sure they were true ladies, both with private Women's College degrees and graduate degrees. He gave them a perfect life, being a Daddy to the very end. But later in life David found his true calling as a Granddad. His pride and joy were spending time with Henley and being proud of his Grandsons.
Our Husband, Daddy, Granddad, Brother, Uncle, Cousin, friend, colleague, "Senator," "Best Bubba," and "Sir" will be sorely missed.
