DORSET Luc Hawkins, the beloved son of Paula and John Hawkins, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, August 22. Luc was born in New York City, a place he loved, to his adoring Australian parents. He was raised in Dorset, Vt. and for a short time Sydney, Australia. He traveled extensively and reveled in discovering these new places, making new friends and leaving his unique mark across the world. However in the end, wherever Luc travelled, he always found his way back to Dorset. Luc loved all American sports as long as it involved the Knicks, the Nets, the Yankees and the Giants. Uniquely, he would combine his love for skiing with his passion for his favorite team by wearing a Knick's jersey over his ski jacket, gently chiding his New England friends. He had the ability to punctuate ordinary events with a sudden humor that would delight his audience. He was intensely loved by his family and friends, and will be sorely missed and forever remembered. In addition to his parents, he is survived by his paternal grandmother, Joyce Hawkins, and his maternal grandfather, Ivan Lorigan. FUNERAL NOTICE: Funeral services are being arranged by BREWSTER FUNERAL HOME.Services will be held on Friday, Aug. 29, at 2 p.m. at the United Congregational Church of Dorset and East Rupert.
