Jack Lawson

Jack Lawson, 83, of Grand View, Idaho passed away peacefully on October 1, 2021
surrounded by family. Jack was born in Bruneau, Idaho in 1938 and married his high
school sweetheart, Belva, in 1959. Jack made a lasting impact on the lives of everyone
around him, including the impressive and one-of-a-kind antique museum, The Lawson’s
Emu-Z-Um in Grand View, that he and his wife Belva have been building together since 1996. Together, they recently won an award from the Idaho Historical Society for the
best museum in Idaho. His passion for collecting, his charm and witty personality and
joy of creating strong relationships with everyone he met were just a few of the amazing
qualities that he possessed. He is an irreplaceable husband, brother, father,
grandfather, great-grandfather and friend that is very loved and will be greatly missed.
He is survived by his beloved wife Belva of 62 years, his son Kerry Lawson and wife
Lisa, and his daughter Lori Johnson and her husband Jim. He has six grandchildren
Nick (Sarah), Tarah (Brandon), Katie (Mitchell), Adam, Kristine and Ashley and two
great grandchildren, Addilynn and Roland. He is also survived by his brother and
sister-in-law, Gary and Jan Lawson, and many nieces and nephews.
Jack did not want any memorial services, so his request will be honored during this
time. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers as we honor the amazing man that Jack

    We met Jack and Belva at the Emu-Z-Um about 10 years ago and have enjoyed them during many visits since. Jack was always so welcoming and friendly. He loved showing us around and talking about his rock collection. About a year ago when we arrived I asked Belva where Jack was; she pointed way across the grass and said he was up on the roof of a building near the east end, hammering away. That is how I will remember Jack, working tirelessly, enjoying building relationships while building the Emu-Z-Um.
    Thank you for sharing life with us; you will be missed. Mike and Debbie Ciulla

    We just heard about Jack’s passing while watching the evening news. My husband and met them when we moved to Idaho in 1976. We always appreciated having Jack and Belva as neighbors. We send our sympathy to the family.
