Lawrence Hall Matheson (1971 - 2005)

Lawrence died suddenly at the age of 34 while hiking in the Santa Monica mountains on the evening of May 20th. He lived in rural Calabasas with his two dogs Chip and Pepper and spent as many hours a day outdoors as possible. On the weekends, Lawrence was proud of his work as a Mountain Forestry volunteer and devoted member of Tree People, a group committed to the restoration and replanting of forests throughout the Southern California mountains. He studied Business Economics at Cal State Berkeley and worked as a securities broker at Morgan Stanley in Huntington Beach. Lawrence will be greatly missed by his coworkers, family, many forestry friends, and his golf buddies, who were continually amazed that Lawrence had the perfect golf gadget for every situation.
