Scott C. Lawrence

On October 29, 1965, Rural Route Mail Carrier, Scott C. Lawrence was born to Glen A. and Carolyn (Stumpff) Lawrence in Tulsa. Sadly he passed away on January 31, 2018 at the age of 52. He had a love for cats, gardening, and putting up Christmas lights. He always had a cat in his life, from childhood up into later in his life where he spent time feeding the stray cats at his apartment complex. He taught himself how to garden through much trial and error. He eventually learned how to make certain plants grow longer and stronger, he even traded bulbs with his neighborhood gardener until he had a green thumb of his own. He had redone his mother’s rock garden until it flourished with life. Around the same time he was developing his love for gardening, he also developed a passion for hanging up Christmas lights. He would hang up the lights on his neighbors’ houses. He didn’t care if he was paid or not, but then that made his house the last one to be decorated. At family gatherings, he was known for making the “world’s best relish tray.” Much to his three sisters’ chagrin, He would bring more candy than his nieces and nephews could ever eat, from the time they were toddlers to even now. At Easter he would fill plastic Easter eggs with candy for an Easter egg hunt, that he did every year until the youngest child finally outgrew it at the age of 15, but this didn’t stop him from bringing an abundance of candy to Christmas gatherings even this last year. Because of all of the candy he always brought, He was given the nickname “The Candy Man Uncle.” He will be missed by all who knew him and the Oologah Community, He always had a smile and a wave as he drove by. He took extra time to take packages to the door or make sure they were in a safe location. His dedication to his customers was so appreciated and will be missed. He is survived by his mother, Carolyn; siblings, Larry Lawrence, Susan Hanes and husband, Stephen, Sally Miller and husband, Bret and Leanne Ball and nieces and nephews. Scott was preceded in death by his father. A memorial service was held at 11 a.m., Saturday, February 3 at John Knox Presbyterian Church. Family suggests memorial contributions may be made to Street Cats, 6520 E. 60th, Tulsa, OK 74145
