He was born August 4, 1945, a son of the late Mildred (Marks) Hawk and Oscar Hawk. He was especially proud of his heritage as a direct descendent of the pioneers, John and Christian Lauffer. Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Larry J. Hawk, in 1976. He is survived by his son, Dennis and wife Barbara and granddaughters Elizabeth, Nicole, and Heather; daughter Renee and husband Jamal and grandchildren Adam, Zachariah, and Nadra-Claire; sister, Jeanne Baughman (late beloved brother in law James); brother Kenneth Hawk (wife Linda), and many nieces, nephews and friends, including his best rescue buddy, his Labrador, Angel.
