Mervyn Dendy Lawton 1922 2014
for. Box 1188, Moab, UT, 84532.
Longtime Moab resident Merv Lawton passed away on the evening of Jan. 9, 2014. He was born July 7, 1922, to parents Eddie and Alfred Lawton of Cape Town, South Africa.
stepping away from this duty, Mervyn filled his time raising sheep and caring for rescued animals with his significant other, Sam Cunningham. Mervyn always loved fishing, upland bird and water fowl hunting, but intimated that large game hunting was not his thing, because he didn't like looking into the target's eyes. He marveled at nature's creations and shared his fascination with his children, who enjoyed such escapades as a rescued baby blue heron in the basement, midnight excursions to observe beavers at work under the full moon and countless times that a snake enjoyed a nap in his clothing pocket. He raced boats, go carts, snowmobiles, motorcycles and stock cars. He prized his time on oceans and lakes and in forests and deserts, and thoroughly enjoyed the relationships that these activities enabled. Wherever Mervyn ended up, he sought out recreational and educational opportunities for his family. He passed on to his children an abiding respect for local and indigenous peoples. Whether the locals be Xhosa, Cree or Navajo, Canadian, Mexican or American, Mervyn found common ground in local pleasures.
In 1957, the Lawton family emigrated to Elliot Lake, Canada, a uranium boom town in northern Ontario. The next move was to become the manager of a copper mine near Lac La Ronge, an even more northern town in Saskatchewan. In 1971, Mervyn was transferred to Moab to take on the role of mine manager of Rio Algom's property in Lisbon Valley. He often noted that the climate and flora was much like coming home to his native South Africa. Mervyn retired from Rio Algom in 1988 but stayed active in the community, being elected as county commissioner and acting as the chairman of the commission for two years. After Guess Iphone 7 Case
His studies were interrupted by World War II, during which he served as a Spitfire pilot in North Africa and Italy. As a young Major, he returned to "Wits" in 1947 to complete his degree and start his mining career at one of the many gold/uranium mines around Johannesburg. In this period he met and wed (in 1951) Elspeth "Penny" Lawton.
