Patrick “Pat” Robert Lawhead age, 72 passed away Thursday March 19, 2020 in Hiawassee, Georgia. Pat was born on July 3,1947 to the late Mr. Robert and Beryl Jean (Bracken) Lawhead in Johnstown PA.
Pat served in the United States Army in Vietnam and Germany. He was a true "peace activist", participated in Veterans for Peace, St. Pete for Peace and lived to encourage and lift others up. He was a great storyteller, loved to give his opinion on matters and loved to give of himself for the better of others. He was quite social yet also enjoyed his alone time working in his woodshop turning wood and building wood projects. He was a down to earth guy who got excited when he got to work with a new idea or type of wood and would eagerly head to his shop to see what he could make with it! Pat also enjoyed hiking, making his famous waffles, gardening, fishing/boating, fossil hunting and Geocaching. He also liked to go to "Open Mic" nights even though he never sang or played an instrument, he was simply there to cheer on those who did.
He is survived by his wife of (48 years) Lynanne Lawhead, daughter and son-in-law Suzanne and Daniel Binette; son and daughter-in-law Timothy and Teresa Lawhead, brother Danny Lawhead, sister Judith Wilkins and half sister Sharon Yeckley, grandchildren Megan Binette, Jordan Binette, Jordyn Garves and Grayson Lawhead; along with extended nieces, nephews, family and friends.
