So sorry to hear this sad news. Was always such a decent and funny man to all of us who played for him. I still tell my kids to "tape an aspirin to it" if they get a bump our bruise. I fondly remember having to pick up the gear in an extra hurry after Friday practices because Coach Hawes didn't want to miss "Hee Haw". From the looks of all these notes, he will surely be missed.

I enjoyed the 4 years at Highland Park under Coach Hawes and helping him coach his baseball camp in the summers. I still spend a lot of time ducking from balls that are not there thanks to coach, and no one could give a minus with more flare than Coach Hawes but when it came down to it he always had my back weather on or off the field he will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family with much love.

From very early in my career, Coach Hawes displayed an uncanny ability to always place me in situations to succeed. He took a chance on a young 14 year old kid that possessed little to no confidence...he made a promise to me and my family to believe in him and trust him to get me to college on scholarship. He proved true to his word and I signed/played at Louisiana Tech University. Coach Hawes taught me how to trust and believe in my abilities by instilling confidence and character in me. He taught me to live life like it was a baseball game, always thinking one pitch ahead and how to compete with tenacity. He truly believed in me even when I didn't...to his surprise, I became a Law Enforcement Officer and have been for 27 years, the last 13 as an Elected Law Enforcement Official. If it weren't for him, I never would've had the confidence needed to pursue and succeed in such a career. I've been fortunate to continue a dialogue with him over the years and just like my playing days, I always knew where I stood with him. However, it was important to me to always let him know just how much he truly meant to me! My heart is heavy, but am very thankful that my son Garrett had the opportunity to meet THE man who played such a pivotal role in my life! To Mrs. Hawes, Joe Mike, Jimbo and Kathye: my sincerest, deepest sympathy and my thoughts and prayers are with you all. May God Bless "The Sailor Man" always and forever!
