Obituary for Lawrence G. Sours

Lawrence G. Sours, age 95 of Farmville passed away Tuesday, January 5, 2010. He was preceded in death by his wife, Dorothy Lewallen Sours. A native of Chatham, Virginia, and the youngest of William and Elizabeth Sours' 12 children, he is survived by his daughter, Llewellyn Sours Watson, and her husband, Hunter, of Farmville; his grandsons, Bradley Lawrence Watson and his wife, Virginia, and Brett Von Cannon Watson and his wife, Lorrie; and four grandchildren Thomas, Ethan, Claire, and Sophie, all of Farmville.

Mr. Sours was a lifelong funeral director, spending the last thirty years of his career at the Pugh Funeral Home in Asheboro, NC. He was a soloist who sang for over a thousand weddings and funerals during his lifetime, as well as for both of his grandsons' weddings when he was over 80 years old.

A Rotarian for sixty years, he was past president of the Altavista Virginia Rotary Club, a member of the Farmville Rotary Club, and a Paul Harris Fellow.
