Junior Loved Outdoors, Excelled At Golf

Gabe Lawrence

BURLINGTON FLATS – Gabriel Donald Lawrence, 16, was called home unexpectedly Friday Aug. 31, 2018, in Edmeston.

Gabriel was born on Dec. 12, 2001, at Bassett Birthing Center in Cooperstown, the son of Gary and Paula (Clark) Lawrence.

Gabe, also known as “Nator”, spent his 16 years in the Edmeston-Burlington community growing with his family and friends. He was entering his junior year at Edmeston Central and was planning to attend the BOCES Building Trades Program.

He loved the outdoors, and could be found sitting in a tree stand, hunting deer or turkeys and running rabbits with his beagle. He loved casting a fishing pole in whatever stream or lake he could find and riding dirt-bike and four-wheeler on or off the beaten path (sometimes without a helmet).
