Brians son's Obituary
Lawson, Christopher Dale,

Our pride and greatest joy, Chris Lawson, 38, resident of Burbank, California, died suddenly August 2, 2011, while travelling through Phoenix, Arizona. He is survived by his wife Kai in Burbank, parents Brian and Frances (nee Koziuk) Lawson of Bothwell, Ontario, and as son-in-law to Beverly Jennings, and Bishop and Rachel Ransom all of Columbus, Ohio.. Chris was born in Kitchener and grew up in Windsor, Ontario. Chris graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Windsor in 1996, and decided on the California Institute of the Arts, a Disney School in Santa Clarita, California, for his Masters Degree. After receiving his MFA, he remained in the Los Angeles area working in his field. In September of 2008 he married the lovely Kai Ransom, formerly of Columbus, Ohio, in a picture perfect wedding in Pasadena.
Chris had a life-long love and appreciation of music and was a well known and respected record collector. He loved travel, visiting Europe and Japan, and with Kai to Paris and Mexico City.
Chris was the only grandson of the late Marion and Alfred Lawson, and greatly missed by step-grandmother Alvina, all of Dundas, Ontario, and the late Jacob and Justina Koziuk of Mimico, Ontario. He is also survived by Great-aunts and Great-uncles, many Aunts and Uncles and cousins, and many many friends in the USA and Canada. All who knew Chris loved him and felt he was a kind soul.
