David “Davy” Lawrence Jr. of Seth, WV joined his mother and father in peace on June 23, 2021. Born to David and Thelma Lawrence on November 18,1964, his guardian angel was put on high alert. David kept him busy in his younger years jumping into lake spillways, his need for speed, and unfaltering ability to protect the ones he loved no matter what. David is survived by his children, Shawnee Evans of Logan, Josh and Seth Lawrence of Seth; former wife, April Lawrence; grandchildren, David Caldwell and Rosalee Lawrence; sisters, Jackie Henderson and companion Mark Sloan, Debbie Santonia; and lifelong friend, Ronnie Russell. David was a family man, working as a mechanic and truck driver to support them. He made sure they were safe and protected by being certain every lock was secure three times and checking under beds and in closets that no monsters were there. David enjoyed hunting, riding, going to Summersville Lake, and hanging out in the garage. Mostly, he enjoyed being surrounded by the people he loved, his family and friends. Apart from being a great friend and member of his family, he was a good person in general. He chased off bullies in high school, helped women in distress on roadsides, and loved animals so much that he spent more time watching the deer than hunting them. He will be forever loved and deeply missed by all who knew him. Funeral services will be held at Armstrong Funeral Home at Whitesville on Tuesday, June 29, 2021. Family are welcome at 5pm and friends at 6pm. Farewell message will be given at 8 by Reverend Ronnie Santonio.
