Donald Lee Hawkins Sr., was born Dec. 3, 1948, and departed this life on Oct. 23, 2016.
On March 7, 1970, he was joined in marriage to wife, Carol Ann Rice-Hawkins. He is also survived by his three children, Donald Lee Hawkins Jr., (Shanteria), Carole Dawn Hawkins-Clark (Scott), and Darius Lamonte Hawkins (Liene); and his grandchildren, Whitney, Kyana, Jaiden, Ajeya, Eric Joshua, Alysa, Gabrielle, and Justin. He is also survived by his siblings, Regina Williams, Reginal Hawkins Jr., (Carla) and Carolyn Stewart; one niece and two nephews.
Donald Sr. proudly served in the U.S. Navy and retired as a CWO-3 after 25 years of honorable service. He lived a full life with a deep love of his family, even if he had a funny way of showing it. He will be sorely missed by all his family and friends.
The family will receive friends at Hollomon-Brown Funeral Home, Kempsville Chapel, on Saturday, Oct. 29, 2016, from 12-1 p.m. The funeral service will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday in the funeral home chapel.
