In the early hours of November 27, 1966 Steven Hawker was welcomed into the world. He was the youngest son of David and Emilie Hawker.
His mother Emilie and older brother Dave welcomed him into heaven on November 26, 2020.
Known to most as “Hawker”, he was a gentle giant always ready for an adventure. He loved and laughed with his whole self. His beautiful soul touched innumerable lives and his sudden loss has shaken the lives of his family – biological and chosen alike- to their core. Among his many interests were hockey, dirt biking, ice racing, all things mechanical, river boat racing and spending time with his many friends. He was available to help anyone at anytime with a ride, a big bear hug, a shoulder to cry on. While he may have had a small biological family he was “Uncle Steve” to many of his chosen family. He travelled and worked all over Canada and the United States as a Boilermaker including spending time in Boston during 9/11. Being a boilermaker was more than a career to him, it was a way of life. He made a permanent mark on this world and will be missed.
He is survived by his father David Hawker (Leona); His sister Cindy (Shane) and her children Jerran (Renee), and Kris; His niece Gina (Josh) and their son Wade.
He is predeceased by his mother Emilie; his older brother Dave; his paternal grandparents George and Eunice Hawker, and maternal grandparents Joe and Agatha Lacombe.
Due to COVID-19 there will not be a service immediately. A celebration of life will be held as soon as we are able to safely do so. We look forward to sharing our crazy stories with you then.
In lieu of flowers a donation to The Canadian Cancer Society, the Salvation Army or a charity of your choice can be made.
Ride on Hawker.
