Hawkins, Roy Obituary

Roy W. Hawkins, 71, of Little Egypt Road, Harrisonville, PA died at 6:55 p.m., Monday, November 10, 2014 at the Woodland Retirement Community, Orbisonia, PA, with his loving family at his bedside after a brief struggle with pancreatic cancer.

Born October 13, 1943 at Knobsville, PA, he was the son of the late Boyd and Olive (Helman) Hawkins.

Mr. Hawkins is survived by two brothers, Clair Hawkins, Harrisonville with whom he resided and Harry Hawkins, Hustontown, PA. Two brothers Norman Hawkins and Raymond Hawkins and one sister Ruth Knepper are deceased.

He attended Hustontown High School and was a life long resident of Fulton County, PA, rarely traveling outside his beloved home unless he was pursuing his love of hunting and fishing. He lived a great, humble life always hard at work operating his family sawmill and farm, finding relaxation in watching old western movies and television shows. He was a man of few words, but never was one of those words hurtful or poorly intended. Roy had a huge heart and never failed to help anyone in need.

He will be greatly missed by innumerable nieces and nephews, their children, grandchildren and scores of friends.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m., Friday, November 14, 2014 at the M. R. Brown Funeral, 301 Pitt Street, Hustontown, PA with Pastor Chris Elliott officiating. Interment will be at Fairview Cemetery, Harrisonville, PA. Friends may call at the funeral home from 6-8 p.m. on Thursday and one hour prior to the service on Friday.
