Son of Samuel Alonzo Hawkins and Elizabeth Lois Ball, husband of Alice Bunce Dickerson.

Obituary - Many Southolders learned with deep sorrow of the death of Leander B. Hawkins of Port Jefferson, but formerly of this town.

Mr. Hawkins lost his life in an unusual manner. While driving late Saturday night with his wife and a friend, he saw a live wire which had been torn down by the storm, lying across the road. He stepped out of his car and attempted to remove the wire from the road. He was thrown to the ground and severely burned. He was unable to loose his grip on the wire and was still clinging to it when a lineman arrived from Port Jefferson. Mr. Hawkins was taken to the Mather Hospital, but was pronounced dead on his arrival.

Mr. Hawkins was related to many people in this village, having married a daughter of Charles S. Dickerson, formerly of this village. Mr. Hawkins and his wife lived here several years ago. Mr. Hawkins was for a time in the station here, and later had the Peconic office. Both were very popular here and were prominent in dramatics and other interests.
