Eric William Lawseth

Passed in: Sydney, Nova Scotia
Passed on: March 9th, 2019

With broken hearts, the family of Eric William Lawseth (75) announces his passing on March 9th at his home in Sydney. He was the son of the late Ragnivald (Roy) Lawseth & Clarissa Derbyshire.
Born in Jasper, AB, Eric rolled into Sydney in his 1964 ½ yellow Mustang convertible and quickly wooed his love of 50 years, Allura (Canning). He kept her, his family & friends laughing with his dry wit until he lost his long and hard-fought battle.
Eric was a dedicated employee of the Cape Breton Post for 44 years. His unlimited interests fed his endless appetite to learn, explore and find his latest hobby.
He enjoyed skating and skiing, photography, model railroad, model airplanes and having new cars and all the technology that came with it. He was an audiophile at heart, he had a passion for the latest amplifiers and speakers. Eric wanted his life to be constantly filled with music; and it was, the louder the better.
To his friends, he was an avid piano player and handyman, ready to lend a hand with any project that needed doing. To his family, he was the constant jokester, corrector of grammar, with a generous hand and heart beyond compare.
Although his passion was always to play classical piano, he shocked his family with a new love for singing. After his retirement, he became a proud member of the Cape Breton Chordsmen where he found an extended family & friends that he cherished.
He will be deeply missed by his wife, Allura; two daughters, Khirsta and Erica; son-in-law, Andrew MacDonald and three grandchildren, Braydon, Morgan and Keeley.
A visitation will be Wednesday March 13, 2019 at Sydney Memorial Chapel from 6:30-9 p.m.
We’d like to thank the many healthcare professionals that helped to provide care and support to Eric and our family.
