Burton Leslie Hawkins

March 7, 1930 — January 21, 2024

Pembroke

Hawkins, Burton - Passed away peacefully at Miramichi Lodge, Pembroke, with loving family by his side, on Sunday, January 21, 2024 in his 94th year.

Burton “Burt” Leslie Hawkins was born March 7, 1930, in Micksburg, Ontario, to parents Leslie (Lillian)  and Hazel Hawkins (nee Childerhose).  Beloved husband of 71 years to Lorraine Hawkins (nee Wilcox).  Cherished father of Lynn Rogers, Almonte; Neil Hawkins, Manotick; and Doug Hawkins, Pembroke.  Grandpa of Tyler Hawkins (Margaret), Ottawa.  Great-grandpa of Sophie, Callie, Whitney & Mila.  Brother of the late Cecil Hawkins (late Betty).  Fondly remembered by brothers & sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews and cousins. Predeceased by special aunt the late Marjorie Hawkins, Kemptville.  

Burt and Lorraine raised their 3 children in Pembroke. Upon retiring from CFB Petawawa after 36 years of dedicated work as a Federal Civil Servant, the pair retired in their newly built home on their cottage property in Burritt’s Rapids.  As life sometimes requires us to do, Burt & Lorraine downsized and returned home to Pembroke to live out the latter part of their lives enjoying time spent with their children, grandson and great-granddaughters.   

Burt loved to travel, as he and Lorraine did extensively. He loved the outdoors, dancing, laughing and making people happy.  He also loved his sports, especially hockey with family and friends.  He will be greatly missed by many.

A special thank you to the staff of Miramichi Lodge for their care and compassion for Burt and his family while he resided there on 1B.  

Respecting Burt’s wishes, cremation has taken place.  A Graveside Service will be held at Wesley United Cemetery at a later date.  Arrangements entrusted to Malcolm, Deavitt & Binhammer Funeral Home, Pembroke. As an expression of sympathy, donations to Miramichi Lodge Foundation would be appreciated.
