I met Hawk in the Nomads booth at the OTC just after he retired from Ideco. We struck up a friendship, and he started a short new career at Venturetech for about a year. Times were bad, but Hawk sold us a very big order of drilling machinery for the north slope of Alaska. He still enjoyed working and would have been glad to stay on, but Dell came down with MS so he went home to take care of her. He cared for her full time until she passed away many years later. That was obviously a very difficult life, but you’d never know it talking to him. He not only never complained, he always had a great attitude, smiled and laughed a lot, and enjoyed life. He was a fine example of how a man should live life, and I’m proud to have been one of his friends. God bless you, Hawk.
