Frank is survived by his brother Robert Lawton of Calgary; daughter Shelly Lawton of Calgary; daughter Brenda Lawton of Cochrane; and granddaughter Ireland Lawton of Cochrane. He was predeceased by his wife of thirty-seven years Shirley Lawton (2001); his daughter Pamela Lawton (1974); and his parents Cecil and Ava Lawton (nee Reynolds).
