WesternU Board Chairman Emeritus Warren Lawless Dies
Date:1/14/2014

, he studied business and the humanities at the University of Washington while working as a journeyman typographer for the West Seattle Herald. He rose steadily through the newspaper’s ranks, eventually becoming manager of retail advertising sales before leaving to start his own printing and management company in the late 1960s, which he operated until his retirement in 1988.

Lawless was also deeply involved in community service, as part of the West Seattle Chamber of Commerce but most notably as a member of the Kiwanis Club of West Seattle, where he held several positions, including president and secretary.

“He was a moving force for the last 60 years in West Seattle,” said Denis Sapiro, a member of the Kiwanis Club of West Seattle Board of Directors. Sapiro moved to Seattle in 1978, and Lawless welcomed him to the community, befriended him and recruited him into Kiwanis.

“He helped me when I was changing jobs or looking for a promotion,” Sapiro said. “He was a mentor, someone that I could turn to for advice, whether it was good business advice or fatherly advice.”

Lawless was active in the West Seattle Hi-Yu Summer Festival and he helped start a group that bought up land and provided parking for the merchants in the West Seattle Junction.
