Gulf Coast, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida,
West Texas and New Mexico, finally moving to Midland

mother. The most important things in her life were
God & her family. June was a bright light to everyone
that knew her and will be remembered for her sweet
disposition and quick humor. She was a member of
North Church of Christ.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her loving
husband, Royce, and her son Kyle. She is survived by

away on Sept. 14, 2015. Kyle was born on Nov. 16, 1957
in Roswell, NM to Royce & June Lawson. The family moved

lifetime love for the family's ranch outside of Capitan,

Kyle graduated from Midland High School in 1976 and
attended Texas A&M University, becoming an Aggie for
life. After attending Texas A&M, Kyle joined his father
as a geologist for the family's company, Centurion
Energy. While at A&M, Kyle gained a love for sports
photography, oftentimes sneaking onto Kyle Field
during football games to take photos. This love for
photography would extend throughout his life, as Kyle
would attend any local sporting event just to snap a
few good shots. Already having eclectic taste, Kyle
became interested in the arts with his favorite hobbies
being pottery and later in life becoming a painter. Kyle
will be remembered for his quick humor, upbeat personality
and caring nature. There was no one Kyle wouldn't take
time to give a lending hand.

Lawson; son, Travis Lawson and wife Dedria and their
children, Kent and McKinley, all of Midland. His father
Royce Lawson precedes him in death.
