Curtis E. Hawkins, 60, of North Waterboro, died at his home following a brief illness on February 28, 2016.
Curtis was born at Fort Campbell, Kentucky on August 3, 1955 the son of Charles T. and Laura B. (Dersam) Hawkins. Curtis was raised by the traditions of a military family; he was respectful and when questioned would often reply with a “Yes Ma’am” or “No Sir.”
Curtis attended Bangor High School and met his future wife, Sheila Kenenski, while she was attending Husson College. They married in 1975 and the couple had four children. They made their home in North Waterboro and Curtis worked 25 years for HP Hoods in Portland and worked his way up within the company and became a supervisor. Curtis had battle diabetes from his teenager years and in 2012 had to take early retirement.
Even with the many challenges Curtis lived with day-to-day, he possessed a good sense of humor and people were drawn to him by his wit and he could strike up a conversation with anyone he met. Curtis loved to be home and spent many hours on the computer; staying in touch with family and friends and being challenged by an assortment of computer games. Curtis will be deeply missed by his family and close friends.
He is survived by his wife, Sheila Hawkins of No. Waterboro; his two sons, Jason Hawkins of No. Waterboro and John Hawkins of No. Carolina; his two daughters, Lindsey Hawkins of Waterboro and Lisa Hawkins of Portland; his sister, Ruth Falk of Penn; his brother, Thomas Hawkins of FL; and thirteen grandchildren.
