PRESCOTT – A funeral will be held Thursday for former Prescott Mayor Robert Lawn.

Lawn died Saturday (Feb. 10) after battling dementia for several years.

He was 83 years old.

Lawn served as mayor for the Fort Town from 2002-2006 and was also on council from 2010-2014.

He was also involved in a number of local organizations, being “not one to sit idly by when his community needed him,” Lawn’s obituary reads in part.

Visitation is taking place today (Wednesday) from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at St. Mark’s Parish Center at 461 Edward Street in Prescott.

The funeral is Thursday at 11 a.m. at St. Mark’s Roman Catholic Church at 160 Dibble Street West.
