October 25, 1941 - October 6, 2021
Michael Dean Hawks October 25th, 1945 - October 6th, 2021 Michael grew up in Wichita, Kansas and moved with his family to Florida in 1960 and enjoyed living in St. Pete Beach, Treasure Island, and Roser Park. A 1964 graduate of Boca Ciega High, he worked at Maas Brothers in downtown St. Petersburg. After living in Oregon in the early 1970s, he then came back and had three years of Fun bartending at the ol' Oyster Shucker on St. Pete Beach, renewing old and making new good friends. Mike then attended the Florida School of Dog Grooming and was good at it, working for London Pet Care in Miami. Michael was a generous and creative individual, and also enjoyed learning the art of stained glass, gifting his family and friends with his cool, personalized work. He was a window blind manufacturer with Hunter Douglas for 30 years. After retirement, he continued to enjoy close relationships with his friends and family who loved his sincere nature and quick sense of humor. When he moved to Lutheran Towers in South Pasadena he quickly made new friends and became a welcome asset, working the Reception Desk for the last 12 years. Many of us were delighted and amazed with his newfound affinity for electronics at that time, and he found joy in successfully exploring new technological devices and gadgets, making them work for him without a hitch. A quiet, insightful man, Mike was always hopeful and of strong courage when the situation warranted it. He passed away unexpectedly while recovering from recent open heart surgery. Michael, a thoughtful Teddybear of a guy to many, is Dearly Loved, and missed by All.
