Dustin Eric Lawson

Dustin Eric Lawson was born in Sullivan County, TN on January 24, 1981 and departed this life November 30, 2020 at the age of 39 years, 10 months and 6 days.  He was the son of Daniel (Danny) and Rebecca (Becky) Winkle Lawson.

Dustin graduated from Sullivan Central High School in 1999 and from Northeast State Community College in 2011. He married Tressa Ball on July 15, 2010 and to this union was born 1 daughter.

Dustin was saved in 2015 and joined Blackwater Lick “Big Door” Church. He was blessed with a wonderful strong singing voice and sang proudly for the Lord.   He was a hard worker who loved to sing God’s praise and help in any way possible for the church. He would give you the shirt off his back just to help.

 He worked at various companies, mostly dealing with the cell phone industry; climbing cell phone towers and performing equipment audits all across America.

Dustin was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Elder Virgil Lee Winkle and Faye Sampson Winkle; and his paternal grandfather, Elder Carl Lawson; several aunts, uncles and friends.

Survivors include his wife, Tressa Lawson; 1 daughter, Darcy Makenna Lawson; 1 stepson, Casey Hartsell; his parents, Danny and Becky Lawson; 1 brother, Adam Lawson (Holly); his paternal grandmother, Pauline Osborne Lawson, who passed away 1 day after his passing and a host of friends and relatives.


His greatest joy in this life was serving the Lord.  Always willing to lend a helping hand, he touched countless lives over the years.  His pain and suffering are finished, his knees and back do not cause him any pain now and he is home with the Lord.

The family will receive friends from 4-7:00 pm on Friday, December 4, 2020 at Good Shepherd Baptist Church. The funeral service will follow at 7:00 pm with Elder Daniel Hurd, Pastor Robert Fletcher and Pastor Rick Vannoy officiating.  Robert and Charlotte Fletcher will be singing.

The graveside service will be held on Saturday at 10:00 am at East Lawn Memorial Park.

Pallbearers will be Justin Dunham, Ezra Summey, Chad Davis, Houston Lambert, Josh Defreece, Tyler Lavigne, Jamie Maynes, Josh Smith, Houston Lambert and Chad Davis.  Honorary pallbearers will be Deion Talbott, Larry Wallen, Dwight Wallen, Dennis Wallen, Jeff Wallen and Terry Wallen.

Dustin lived 2 doors down from us( Karen, Sean, & Chelsea Corrigan) on Moody Dr. He was like a big brother to my children- playing with them in the leaves from the time Sean was 2!!! He was supportive to Sean when he performed his first song in public, he would visit us, he helped me pack the moving van when I had hrs to move from our house! We supported & loved him as well. Once Dustin & I ( Karen) even sang Jackson on a karaoke night ( I was June carter to his excellent Johnny Cash)!!!! We visited him & Tressa & he loved Casey & his baby girl!!! We will miss being able to hear that voice& see his sweet smile again !!! Peace be with you Dustin! We love you!!!!

Dustin's family, I still can hardly believe he is gone.Two things I remember most about Dustin, the night that Bro Billy Mitchell preached a revival service at Bible Way & when the invitation was given Bro. Dustin went to the altar and accepted Jesus as his Savior. The other memory, he was the character of Jesus in our Christmas program. Those are two great memories. We are praying for the family that God will wrap His loving arms around them with His comfort during this time.Dustin, we will miss you but we know we will see you someday soon. Love and Deepest Sympathy Reba & Gary Turbyfill

Dustin was an intelligent, kind-hearted man who loved his family. He left behind a beautiful, hardworking wife who is my niece Tressa and an incredible daughter Darcy. My heart goes out to them. This has left a hole in our family and he will be missed dearly. I watched YouTube videos of Dustin's testimony when he ask the Lord to come into his heart and it was so wonderful it brought tears to my eyes. And when he sang it was just beautiful to hear. He loved our Lord and I know that he is at peace right now. Knowing this, I hope will bring Tressa some comfort and peace.

Becky, so sorry to hear of your losses. Praying God will hold you in His loving arms of comfort and peace during this time.
