The Rev. Mark T. Hawkins was my best friend during our childhood growing up in Hamilton, Ohio. I have fond and vivid memories of visiting him at his home where we played, talked, and enjoyed each other’s company. I’m saddened that we didn’t keep in touch over the years and I hope his wife and family reach out to me during this time of bereavement! Finally, Paul reminds us & provides words of comfort in saying “If the earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens (2nd. Corinthians 5:1)! alvinleejohnson@hotmail.com

Mr. Hawkins was truly a gentle man. I took him into my heart as a younger brother (in fact he and my youngest brother were the same age). We sent many hours discussing the how to make learning more challenging for our students. He was always sincere and kind. Mr. Hawkins had a wonderful sense of humor and smile. We had a mutual respect for each other. More than anything I appreciate his love and care for our Jeffersonians! Rest in peace. You have fought a good fight and have finish your course well. My prayers are with his wife and daughter at this time.

Mr. Hawkins....I could never, and will never address him as Mark. He was my 5th grade teacher. I highly respect that man a role model, a father figure and disciplinarian. Mr. Hawkins was my teacher when you were able to "SWAT" children. He was arguably one the hardest hitting at Jefferson. I didn't get many by him because I learned real quick. I appreciate the love you had for your students and personal conversations. You will be truly missed. Your formal 5th grade student.

I will never forget you, Brother. Mark's parents took me home from the hospital when I was born, after my biological mother gave me up for adoption. They took care of me, provided for me, and loved me as their own for 2-1/2 years, until I was adopted. I was so blessed to find him, Sharon, Mark, Jr. and Shalena, after so many years. It was such a blessing to have known Mark. Every since we met, I knew that Mark had a gentle spirit, and a kind heart. I know he is in Heaven. May you rest in peace, Brother. My prayers are with you Sharon, Shalena, & John. Your Sister, Renee and Family

I first met Mark when I worked at Jefferson Elementary School in Hamilton, Ohio He was such a kind, caring and respected young man. His students loved him dearly as did many of the staff that worked with him. He was an excellent teacher and mentor to his students. He was always willing to lend a helping hand anytime and anywhere it was needed. There could not have been a better person. I was invited and attended his trail sermon as he sought to become a minister. He was such an inspiration to so many people old and young. Mr. Hawkins as we all referred to him will be truly missed. He gave so much of himself to his church, his family, his former students, community and to his friends. I will pray for the repose of your soul my dear friend. I rest assured that God will receive you with open arms and that you will certainly be among the heavenly host. Rest in Peace thou good and faithful soldier . Andra Surratt
