Alex Hawse

Alex George Hawse quietly left us on April 15, 2015 with his loving wife Beverley by his side.

Born July 28, 1930 in Penticton, BC to Don and Janice Hawse, Alex spent time in Vancouver before his family moved to Tintagel in 1947.

Alex and Bev were married July 6, 1957 and built their family home on Hawse Loop at Tintagel. Alex was a devoted husband and father to six. He worked his entire life in the Lakes District; mainly in the logging industry as a heavy equipment operator. A quiet man with a gentle disposition he enjoyed camping, fishing and spending time with his large extended family and friends.

Alex will be greatly missed by his wife of 58 years, Beverley Ann, his six children: Tammie (Ken) Lukens, Murray (Shirley) Hawse, Alexisann (Gordon) Maxwell, Ross Hawse, Duane (Jennifer) Hawse, Alanise (Tim) Featherstone and 16 grandchildren. Alex leaves behind his brother Heath and two sisters; Sharie Luckenstein and Jet (Danny) Blake.

A Celebration of Life is planned for June 28, 2015 at 3:00pm at the Island Gospel Church. Flowers are gratefully declined. In lieu of flowers donations to the Alzheimer Society of BC www.alzheimerbc.org would be graciously appreciated.

Alex you may have gone from our sight but you are never gone from our hearts.
