Followup: Warren Lawless’s memorial set for next Saturday

Memorial plans are now set for longtime West Seattle community advocate and entrepreneur E. Warren Lawless, who died last Monday at 95. When we reported on Mr. Lawless’s passing, we promised an update when the memorial details were announced; we have now received them from the Kiwanis Club of West Seattle, which honored him just last year for a half-century of service. The memorial is planned for 2-5 pm next Saturday (January 25th) at the West Seattle Golf Course clubhouse (4470 35th SW), with a program starting at 3 pm. Mr. Lawless’s family invites everyone “to bring their memories and share with all.” You can read more about Mr. Lawless’s storied life, in this remembrance published by the Western University of Health Sciences, for which he served as a board member for more than 30 years.

    I knew Warren for about the last 6 years. He was very committed to our community-a true role model for all of us. He had a vision for West Seattle. Not to make it better, because it was so beautiful as it was, but a vision to help preserve the special aspects of our community for future generations. Those special aspects included all of us volunteering and doing what each of us can to foster the sense of community that is critical for our neighborhood to continue to be that “special place” in our hearts.
    Like minded folks, please join us -Kiwanis of West Seattle. That would be a wonderful tribute to Mr. Lawless.
