Eric D. Hawkinson was born on September 9, 1970 in Louisville KY the son of A.D. and JoAnn Hawkinson. Eric was a graduate of West Bend, WI High School. Eric worked for Allianz Life and later for CBIZ in Minneapolis, MN as a director of business development.
On June 27, 1998 Eric was united in marriage to Amanda (Arquette) Hawkinson at the Little Stone church on Mackinac Island, MI. A very strong and passionate soul, Eric was stronger than most could ever imagine. His bravery through chemotherapy, radiation and multiple surgeries over the last 10 years had been remarkable. He kept up the fight to get better until his last day. Eric was a fighter and always stayed positive through his courageous battle with cancer.
Eric loved to help people and was always there to help. Not much stopped Eric when he put his mind to it. Eric enjoyed old restored cars and the stories behind them. He was sure he would one day have his story and car to share with other car enthusiasts. Eric went to Sparrow Bush, NY and came back with his dream car of a 63 XKE Jaguar. Eric was a creative soul and soon developed his own company Horses and Horse Power. He would organize and gather people together to raise funds for various local charities. Eric would volunteer for Meals on Wheels and Homes for Independent Living of Wisconsin, LLC. Eric was a true philanthropist and cared for others.
Eric is forever loved by wife, Amanda; parents, A.D. and JoAnn Hawkinson; brother, Mitch (Joan “Babe”) Hawkinson; other relatives and friends.
John 11:25-26 “I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die.”
