Christopher Paul Lawson

November 24, 1988 ~ June 29, 2020 (age 31)


Christopher Paul Lawson, 31, of Biddeford, passed away unexpectantly on June 29, 2020 at Southern Maine Medical Center. He was born on November 24, 1988 in Brockton, MA, to his mother, Tina (Burns) Howe. Chris was raised by his step-father, Steven Howe, from age five.

Chris loved carpentry and baking. In pursuing his baking passion, Chris worked at a number of bakeries in his life, but spent many years working as a baker for The Donut Shop in Biddeford. Chris loved his job at the bakery, but he was also a free spirit who enjoyed fishing, video games, concerts, and being with his friends and family.  

His older brother, Steven Lawson, was his best friend from a young age.  They remained inseparable into adulthood. Of those he loved, nothing could compare to the love he had for his two young daughters, Isabella and Ava. When he was able, he was a doting father who was incredibly proud of his children. Even apart, he always spoke of his daughters and how glad and proud he was to have been their father. 

The loss of Chris has been sudden and heartbreaking to all those around him, and his friends and family will never forget the impact that he has had on their lives. He is survived by his loving family.  His mother Tina Howe and step-father Steven Howe of Limerick, daughters Isabella and Ava Lawson of Lyman, three brothers; Steven Lawson of Kennebunk, and Andrew and Nathaniel Howe, both of Limerick, sisters Samantha Howe of Springvale and Dana Howe of Limerick, grandparents Paul and Elaine Hoyt of Limerick and Henry Lawson of Norton, MA, as well as numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
