Lawrence Ayon, age 66, passed away on Nov 12, 2020. Lawrence was born June 16, 1954 in Walsenburg, Colorado to Conrado and Teresita Ayon. If you asked 100 people who Lawrence was, they’d all tell you a different story. He was a friend to many, a proud veteran, a second dad to some, an AA sponsor, a mechanic, but his favorite titles were Dad and Gramps. Lawrence never met a stranger. He was known for his witty and often politically inappropriate sense of humor! Lawrence retired from the United States Fish and Wildlife Service in 2011. Since then, he has traveled all over the country which is exactly what he wanted to do. He loved going hunting with his son and grandchildren. One of his fondest memories was his trip to Moab, Utah with his grandson Isaiah Ayon and bonus son and friend Chance Valentine. He was able to travel Europe and go Salmon fishing in Alaska and his most recent, to Florida to see his daughter retire from the United States Air Force. Lawrence is survived by his son Eddie and daughter-in-law Adriane, daughter Valarie and son-in-law Jon, granddaughters Kayla (husband Dusty) and Sophia, grandsons Isaiah, Joshua, and Jonathan, great-grandson Colton and great-granddaughter Kimber, sisters Martha De La Torre (husband Jimmy), Joanne Saenz, and brother Gilbert Ayon. Mother of his children and friend, Georgia Gallegos and her husband Martin. He also leaves behind numerous nieces and nephews who love him dearly. His favorite pastimes were being with his kids and grandchildren, watching jeopardy, watching you tube, watching his computer, scrolling tik tok for hours, googling random stuff, and checking the obituaries.
