Laws, Thomas Thomas Lee Laws, 79, of Wellston, passed away February 11, 2023. Born on July 30, 1943 to Richard (Dick) and Hazel Laws, the third of four children. Shortly after graduating Otsego High School he went on to serve in the United States Navy from 1965-1971. Upon his honorable discharge he returned to Michigan where he worked as a millwright and spent many weekends helping his parents run Camp Mana Pine. Tom adored his time with his children and grandchildren, taking every opportunity to pass down any and all knowledge they were willing (and not so willing) to hear. Known for his long entertaining stories, which he loved to repeat, often! Tom was handsome, charismatic and quite the ladies man but his lifelong love affair was with PBR, pickled eggs, spam, "sweaty" cheese, and ice cream. He firmly believed that Chevy or GMC were the only acceptable vehicles to own and that country music was the only "real music nowadays". Known as a dancer, Tom never turned down an opportunity on the dance floor, even won a few competitions dancing the jitterbug with his sisters, Nancy and Becky. He absolutely loved the outdoors; whether it be fishing, hunting, or simply sitting around the fire tipping back a beer (or few) with family and friends alike. For retirement Tom made his way back up north; building his dream cabin in the woods close by the river. He took great pleasure in being the getaway spot for so many of his friends and family. Tom was preceded in death by his mother, Hazel, father, Dick, brother, Larry and beloved dog, Niko. He is survived by his children; Thomas Laws Jr, Richard Laws, Amy (Robert) Jimenez, step-son Robert (Mary) Madarik, his sisters; Nancy Holmes and Becky (Bill) Holden, many grandchildren, great grandchildren and nieces and nephews. A memorial luncheon will be held March 4th, 12-3pm at the VFW 3030 in Otsego, MI. With a celebration of life, Tom's style, to take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers family ask that donations be made to the Auxiliary Club of VFW 3030 in Tom's honor.
