Kevin Hawkins

On September 12, 2019, Kevin Hawkins, loving husband, father and grandfather passed away at the age of 63.
Kevin was born in Hollywood, California on March 1st, 1956, just hours past being a leap year baby.
Kevin grew up watching James Bond and playing near Grauman’s Chinese Theatre.
In the 7th grade he followed his brother Kermit into the Army Navy Academy in Carlsbad, California. Kevin excelled and finished high school one year early with honors.
Kevin moved to Seattle following his mother, Jo Berg and new stepfather, Don Berg. Kevin worked in restaurants until he became a flight attendant for 10 years. Kevin and DeLawn met in September 1980. At 24, Kevin joyfully became her partner and father to her 2-year-old son, Ryan. In 1988, Kevin and DeLawn were married in Las Vegas. Kevin retired from the airline and started a business printing menus and small signs for buffets. Together they started an apron business that is still growing larger by the year.
Kevin has lived a simple and happy life, full of laughter and love. He leaves behind…his best friend and wife DeLawn, his brother Kermit, his son Ryan and his wife Erica and their two beautiful grandsons, Jamie and Westly.
A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, October 19, 2019 at 10:00 AM at Whitney & Murphy Funeral Home, 4800 E. Indian School Road, Phoenix, with a reception to follow.

I’ve known him from afar my whole life. Up close and personal on occasion. My favorite story his mom told was of his dad telling him his name is mud when he got in trouble and him telling someone his name is Mud Hawks. RIP Mud Hawks. I love you. ❤

Kevin was a dear friend to so many –a true and loyal friend who was always there and could be relied upon in a way that most people cannot be counted on these days. He had an old fashioned sense of honor and a sense of humor that was riotous. He was 100% funny in the most appropriate way. He was like the brother I never had and he and Delawn honored me with their authenticity and friendship for over 20 years. He will be very missed, he was a one of a kind, loving, loyal and caring, wickedly funny too. My sincerest condolences to my beautiful friend, Delawn , his son Mo daughter in law Erica and Westly and Jamie, and brother Kermit. Thank you for sharing him with me and my family all these years. He is at peace with Jo now. Love, Frances

I will always remember Kevin’s smile and readiness to help the passengers with Hughes Airwest and Republic Airlines. Kevin was very personable, and will be missed. I live in Goodyear, and will try to make the Kevin’s Remembrance Celebration.
