Obituary

Lester L. Hawkins went peacefully to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Sunday, January 15th , surrounded by his family.

He fought a long, tough battle with congestive heart failure and the complications that it brought for years. He was one of the strongest men we ever knew, but it took a toll on his body. His absence leaves a large void in our hearts, but we are comforted in knowing he can breathe, walk, and see again and that he is safe in the presence of Jesus. He was a quiet, gentle spirit who loved the Lord and being with his family. He worked at Briar Hill Stone company for 36 1/2 years.

He worked in the timber industry in his younger years and was a part time farmer. He married Jean King on April 14, 1956. They enjoyed almost 67 years of marriage. Lester was born on February 6, 1933 and was just days away from celebrating his 90th birthday. His parents, Maldon and Lucy Hawkins, preceded him in death. His brother Lloyd and sister Nellie Croskey also preceded him in death.

Surviving are his wife Jean, who cared faithfully for him until the end, as did his son, Rex Hawkins, daughter, Dixie (Bill) Greenfield, granddaughter, his “Little Sweetheart”, Rebecca (Chris) Mills and treasured great grandson, Elijah Manuel Mills.

Lester was a member of the Millersburg Baptist Church. The family wants to thank everyone who has prayed for Lester over these years. Lester had a tender heart and taught us how to honor our parents as he did and to know the love and salvation that only comes through the blood of Jesus Christ. There will be a Celebration of Life service at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Millersburg Baptist Church.
