James Lawson Obituary

James Sigman Lawson, 79, of Moscow, Texas, passed away on June 1, 2023, in Lufkin, Texas. Funeral services will be held at Union Springs Missionary Baptist Church in Corrigan Texas at 10:00 AM, Monday June 5, 2023, with Bro. Charlie Hodge and Bro. Lesly Wilkinson officiating. A visitation will be held on Sunday, June 4, 2023, from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at the Corrigan Funeral Home in Corrigan, Texas.

James was born in Monticello, Arkansas to Sigman and Vivian Lawson. He started working at the age of ten, which instilled a lifelong passion for working and providing for his family. He met his first wife, Helen and they had three children Terry, Tammy, and Jamie. Then he met his current wife Connie in Willis, Texas in 1981. They were then married on August 4, 1983. He then gained three more children, Johnny, Jennifer, and Laura Sue and he raised them as his own. James and Connie were together for 41 years in Corrigan, Texas enjoying their life. He was a proud, faithful family man who loved his wife, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, whom all called him Pa Pa. James had many accomplishments in his life. First, he was very proud of being in the Army Reserves. He was also very proud of being a sawmill Foreman for Louisiana Pacific for 25 years. He was admired and respected by all. Finally, he was very proud of his fish and seafood market that he ran with his wife Connie for 20 years. James loved to take his family out on the lake every weekend and spent many hours trying to catch the “Big One”. His favorite lake was Lake Sam Rayburn where he would love to crappie fish. He also liked gardening and was known for collecting antique model cars. He was a fan of Jimmy Swaggart and watching good old westerns in his down time. He also enjoyed woodworking and had a passion for work. That passion carried over into his home life with his wife who would always be found  by his side. He is also remembered for his cooking of BBQ, fish/seafood, and steaks! He loved showing his love for his family through spending time with them and just being in their presence. He also would take his family to Florida every year. The memories made there will last a lifetime. 

James was a member of the Carmona Community Church where he was saved on September 20, 2015. A crowning moment in his life that is fondly remembered  by his family. He and his wife had the privilege of living in the perfect house with the perfect view in Moscow, Texas for the last 5 years, where he would bird/animal watch  with his “Lil Buddy” Spanky, his dog. He is now in the perfect mansion in the sky.

James is survived by his wife Connie Lawson; daughters, Tammy Caskey, Laura Patrick, and husband Keith, Jennifer Skinner, and husband Tim; sons, Terry Lawson, James D. Lawson and wife, Stacie, and John Bolin; Brothers, Larry Lawson, and wife Mary, Randall Lawson, and wife Gloria; as well as 14 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.

He is preceded in death by parents, Sigman and Vivian Lawson; Sisters, Shirley Hillin and Francis Sinclair.

James touched the lives of many and will be missed by all who knew him.
