Tony Lee Hawks, age 51, Of Oak Ridge, left this earth too soon Sunday, July 2, 2023. If you were privileged enough to know Tony, you know there were a few things that he enjoyed with passion. He loved to play golf and poker with his friends, bragging about his girls and their accomplishments, movies, a good steak, The Pittsburgh Steelers, telling people with pride in his voice that he was from West Virginia, classic rock, a chill night on the couch with his wife, family adventures – A.I.S (if you know, you know), and he fiercely loved his family.
Tony was preceded in death by father, Russell Lee Hawks; and grandparents, John & Ruth Hawks, and Junior Mann. Left to cherish his memory is his best friend and soulmate, Ellen Hawks; the light of his life, his two children, Alex Hawks (Brad Simpkins) and Sydney Hawks; mother, Judith Hawks; brother, Kevin Hawks; grandmother, Ruth Pence (Kenneth Pence); and many family and friends.
