Verlin Glenn Lawson, 91, of Colorado Springs, Colorado, passed away on October 22, 2021. Born in Orsburg, Missouri, to Glenn and Viola Lawson on July 4, 1930, Verlin moved with his family to Colorado Springs in 1936 and spent the rest of his life there.

In 1948, Verlin graduated from Palmer High School. He worked as a printer for 20 years and maintained heavy equipment for 7. And later he retired from his Stationery Manufacturing Supervisor position at Current.

Drawn to anything and everything related to cars, Verlin avidly collected Hot Wheels cars from an early age. A member of the National Street Rod Association (NSRA) and Cam Winders Car Club, he enjoyed NASCAR, drag races and attending car shows. Verlin also loved to bowl and belonged to several leagues through the years, and he was an ardent fan of the Denver Broncos.

Always donning a baseball cap, blue jeans and a plaid button-down shirt, Verlin loved jamming out to rock and roll oldies, especially music from The Beach Boys. He worked hard to provide for his family and was always willing to help others. His kind and gentle disposition brought him much respect, admiration and love from all who came in contact with him.

A devoted husband, loving father and proud grandfather, Verlin is survived by wife Linda, his son and daughters, eight grandchildren, six great-grandchildren and many other family members, loved ones and friends. His memorial service will be held on November 3, 2021, at 2:00 p.m. at the Shrine of Remembrance funeral home, 1730 E. Fountain Blvd., Colorado Springs, CO 80910.
