A tribute to our colleague and friend Kirk Lawson

It is with sincere regret that we inform you that our colleague and friend Kirk Lawson passed away on the 6th of April 2022.

Kirk joined our company on 16th November 2009 at the age of 63. Even at his age Kirk had a fantastic appetite for the job and loved his work, nothing gave him more satisfaction than helping and serving customers, supplying to their every need, usually accompanied by one of his many jokes which always put a smile on peoples’ faces.

Kirk was an invaluable member of the Sales Team and Company who made a great contribution and was a real ‘team player’.

Those of you who knew Kirk personally would know of his passion for football and that he was once a professional footballer.

Kirk Lawson Ferguson Menzies

Professional Footballer in Scotland

Kirkie Lawson started his career with Blantyre Vics, where he won a Scottish Junior Cup winners medal in 1970. He was a striker who was an excellent finisher and showed nice touches.

Motherwell quickly snapped him up and in 89 matches he was to net 25 goals. In 1973 he left to join Falkirk. Three years later he returned to Lanarkshire this time with Hamilton Accies where he scored 6 times in 26 games at Douglas Park before going back to the Juniors with Shettleston.

Kirk was a loving family man and is survived by his wife Irene, daughters Jane and Suzanne and son Craig, as well as many grandchildren.

Kirk will be very sadly missed by all at Ferguson & Menzies Ltd and our deepest condolences go to the family and all who knew Kirk.
