Mr. Samuel R. Hawkins Jr., 76, of Winston-Salem died unexpectedly Tuesday, May 31, 2005, at his home. He was a loving father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He was born Dec. 29, 1928, in Forsyth County to Samuel R. Hawkins Sr. and Mae Hawkins. Mr. Hawkins was a veteran of the U.S. Air Force serving during the Korean War.

Hawkins of Winston-Salem and Kathy Hawkins Rayle and husband Ron of Advance; seven grandchildren, Brad, Renna, Graham, Kelly, Brooke, Meredith and Lauren; five great-grandchildren, Kaitlyn, Kelsey, Steele, Braydon and Connor; a brother, J.C.

Burial will follow in Forsyth Memorial Park with Masonic rites. The family will receive friends from 6 to 8 p.m. today, June 2, at Hayworth-Miller Silas Creek Chapel. Memorials may be made to Hospice & Palliative CareCenter, 101 Hospice Lane, Winston-Salem, NC 27103, or the charity of the donor's choice.
