Mitchell Dean Lawrence, age 63, of Peever, SD journeyed to the Spirit World on November 16, 2023.
He was born on October 31, 1960 in Sisseton, SD the son of Levi and Loretta (Beaudreau) Lawrence.
Mitchell is known for his funny, crazy personality. His nieces and nephews were always so excited to visit him and auntie Lisa. There was so much warmth and laughter in the home and always GOOD FOOD! He had a nickname for each of his nieces and nephews.
He will be remembered for his soft and gentle spirit, he truly did have a good heart beyond words. His door was always open to many and he never turned anyone away that was in need, whether it was a listening ear or shoulder to cry on – he always had a way of putting a smile on your face and making you laugh. If anyone needed a place to stay, he always had a room open. His family, children and grandchildren were his world. Mitchell truly lived out the true meaning of FAMILY. Thank you, Uncle, for teaching us that!
Survived by sons Landon Lawrence, Jarrod Lawrence, Luke Lawrence, Austin Lawrence and Dustin Lawrence; eighteen grandchildren; brothers Floyd Beaudreau and Menard Beaudreau; sister Janice Lowey; other relatives and friends.
