Allen possessed a shrewd disposition that could be perceived to others as unapproachable and even cold and hardened by life to others. However, if Allen Hawkins ever let you past those walls to look inside, he was a man with a heart of gold.
He was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed hunting and fishing. He also loved his Harley Davidson and the freedom of the road.
Allen is survived by his step-daughter, Heather Hadaway; grandchildren, Amy and A.J. Hadaway; brother, Kevin Hawkins (Nunnie); sister-in-law, Pam Brown (Jimmy); several nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family members, and friends.
