Dear Hawkins Family,
We support you from afar through this sad time. We are so grateful to God for bringing your dad into our lives. Some of the best memories are sharing meals at your house; BBQs before fireworks at the river. May all these fun memories bring you comfort. Love you always: Dave and Kathy Shuttleworth

I extend my condolences for your loss. My connections with Bob go back many years, to 1967 just before we left for our mission work as a teacher in Zambia. Bob and Lillie had hosted us after speaking to the Calvary United congregation. Many years later, in 1990, we reconnected when I accepted a call as the minister at Roseland Unite Church. My treasured memories of Bob at Roseland are of his participation in the Bible study group where he challenged us to dig deeper into the passages, often to explore unconventional themes. He also led the group when I was not able to attend. In his retirement, I remeber him sharing with me some of the books he was reading and inviting me to read them. Often we had discussions about them. Through these conversations, and as a fellow teacher, I felt I had a close connection with Bob. Hearing of his passing brings back these fond memories. I am grateful that we have shared our life. May his life be remembered for the blessings he brought to many.

Rev. Curtis Marwood

Mr. Hawkins was my grade school teacher - many many years ago but I remember him as a kind and creative teacher who taught with excellence. His lessons were always so interesting and inspiring.
