PAUL EARL HAWKINS
September 27, 1937 — May 31, 2020
Paul passed away from this life at 82 years old in the care of the great staff of the Heritage Park Dementia Unit during the infamous COVID Pandemic of 2020.
Paul was born in Ramah, New Mexico to Cora Bloomfield and Alma Henry Hawkins. He was the youngest of 9 children. He graduated from high school and attended trade school to learn his concrete craft.
Paul was well known for his concrete precast business. He did work for Cherry Hill, BYU, the Monticello Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and many other projects ranging from homes, churches, community buildings, etc.
Paul served for many years at the Kaysville Deseret Mill and Pasta Plant. His hobbies included doing family history, eating, gardening, canning and doting on his wife. When he was younger, he enjoyed hunting with his dogs.
Paul and his wife Ruth spent many years doing humanitarian service by making quilts from their home and donating them. Ruth’s family will always be grateful for the challenge he took on in caring for their mom and grandma during their marriage. He loved her and always found a way to give Ruth what she wanted. He was often heard saying about his wife, “This here is a good woman.”
Paul is survived by his third wife, Ruth Barnett, of 26 years; 3 of his 4 children Pauline Warner (Steve), Rey Hawkins, Judith Stewart; 6 grandchildren; and 11 great grandchildren; and his brother George Elmer Hawkins. He was preceded in death by his daughter JoAnn.
His children held a small, quiet memorial service for him at their home in Georgia on June 4, 2020.
