John Hawthorne Obituary
JOHN THOMAS HAWTHORNE , was born July 17, 1943, in Doddsville, MS, Sunflower County, the third son of Hugh Howard and Jessie L. Hawthorne. John attended Lincoln High School and afterwards enlisted in the United States Air Force. He completed high school equivalence in the military, where he also trained in telecommunications. John used his personable nature and gift of gab and worked a path that led to positions as marketing manager for industrial giants in the southwestern states that included WILTEL and CENTEL. A primary client was the General Services Administration, with whom he negotiated contracts for millions of dollars. His last working assignment was with a local junior college, where he installed, and maintained computer and communication systems. John and his wife, the former Beverly Lavine, raised two, fine sons, Christopher and Jeffrey. They shared a lovely home in Missouri City, TX. John pursued two hobbies in his spare time, collecting home movie media and photography. He became the unofficial Hawthorne family reunion photographer. John leaves to cherish his memory and accomplishments, his wife and sons; mother, Jessie; brother, Hugh Howard (Marilyn); sister, Ruth Helen; and brothers, James (Ruth Ann) and Leonard (B. Ruth), and a host of extended family members. Preceding him on the path to glory were his father, Hugh Howard, Sr.; and his sister, Molly. A Celebration of John's Life, will be held at 2:00 PM, on Saturday, April 20, 2013, at The Settegast-Kopf Co. @ Sugar Creek (Williams Trace Exit), Sugar Land.
