William K. Hawkins
William K. Hawkins, 74, of Laconia NH, more recently of North Fort Myers, FL, left this earth on April 22, 2021, following a short battle with thyroid cancer.
Born in Laconia, the son of the late William I. and Helen Hawkins. He attended Laconia High School, followed by joining the Navy and serving his country in Vietnam from 1964-1969, returning to build the family business, Lake City Auto Body for many years alongside his father.
Bill enjoyed spending every free moment he had on the golf course, bowling with friends and dancing the night away.
He is survived by his three daughters, Tara Baker and husband, Nelson of Belmont, NH., Jill Hawkins and significant other, Tim Noel of Boscawen, NH and Cari Fournier and fiancé, Doug Hepp of Big Rock, TN; seven grandchildren, Joshua & Gage Baker, Makena, Sophia and Amelia Collie, Baylie and Kiersten Fournier whom he was extremely proud of; his sisters, Jeri Peart, Linda Rowley and Margaret Hooker. Bill met his match when Irene Hinchley danced into his life in 2020, we believe to be the unconditional love he had been searching for.
Bill was predeceased by his parents, and his son Timothy Hawkins.
There will be no calling hours, a celebration of life is planned for August.
Mullins Memorial Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Cape Coral, is entrusted with final care.
