Obituary: Hawken, Robert Alan ‘Rob’

Hawken3 270It is with great sadness in our hearts that we had to say goodbye to our big guy far too soon. He left us suddenly on Saturday, May 2, 2020, after a brief but tough battle that he said would be a marathon not a sprint. Sadly he did not complete that race but we will see him at the finish line in due time.

Rob was a champion of others; he had a generous, compassionate spirit, a kind soul, and always fought for the underdog. He loved his three children: Christine, Matt, and Ty, and his wife Julie madly, his amazing family, incredible group of friends, his work family at the LCBO, his love of volunteer work with community organizations and the fire department, and of course his love of red wine; and not always in that order.
