Witt O. Hawkins, Jr. was born in 1939 and died on May 12, 2019.
A man of faith and commitment to his Lord and Savior, his life was well lived and he was well loved! The Lord called him home on May 12, 2019, in Oakhurst, Calif.
Witt was born in Chicago, Illinois to father, Witt and mother Catherine 79 years ago. Witt, his wife Pam and youngest daughter Wittney moved from Chicago to make Mariposa their home for the past 24 years.
This gentle, loving and caring man has left a permanent mark etched on our hearts and will be missed by his wife and best friend of 37 years, Pam, and his children Misty, Estrella, DuJuan, Rolando (Mayumi), Heather (Chad) and Wittney (Tony); many grandchildren and great-grandchildren and his mother-in-law, Gwen (Emmick).
Witt was the eldest of five children and also leaves behind many nieces and nephews and many, many friends.
He is sadly missed by his family, extended family and friends, and will be forever remembered for his beautiful smile, gentle eyes, caring heart, unconditional love and his signature huge loving hug.
Although our hearts are heavy, we will celebrate his life and find comfort that he is in heaven watching over us.
Witt’s celebration of life will be held on Saturday, June 1, 2019 at 10 a.m. at The Grove Church, 42461 Highway 49 South, Ahwahnee, Calif. In lieu of flowers, the family would prefer donations to your favorite charity or church.
