Passing of Ernie Lawrence

April 17, 2018

Dear Stagecoach Community,

It is with heavy heart that we announce the passing of driver Ernie Lawrence this past Sunday, April 15th after an extended illness.

Ernie dedicated over 20 years serving our riders primarily on our local routes whether scheduled or coming in to free up a driver for another route.

Ernie exemplified our drivers’ dedication to our riders, going above and beyond the call to ensure riders had a positive experience on his buses. Whether it was assisting customers as they boarded, bringing groceries to their door or simply offering a smile and warm “hello” as they boarded, Ernie made sure all of his interactions left riders feeling cared for.

Calling hours for Ernie will be held at Day Funeral Home, 4 Franklin St., Randolph on Thursday, April 19th from 6:00 – 8:00pm. Services will take place at Day Funeral Home on Friday, April 20th at 11:00am followed by a luncheon at the Randolph Senior Center at noon.

Online condolences may be left at

Ernie’s family has kindly asked that donations be made to Stagecoach Transportation in lieu of flowers.

We hold Ernie’s family, particularly his wife Martha, in our thoughts as they mourn his passing.
