Richard Thatcher Hawley Obituary
September 17, 1948 - November 3, 2016 Richard Thatcher Hawley, age 68, of Huntington Beach, California, passed away unexpectedly on November 3, 2016. Funeral Services will be held on Friday, November 11 at 10am at St. Mary's By the Sea, located at 321 10th Street in Huntington Beach. Rich was born in Los Angeles to Jerry and Pat Hawley on September 17, 1948. Rich grew up on Lido Island where his love of sailing and the ocean began. He graduated from Newport Harbor High School in 1965. He married his college sweetheart and the love of his life, Susan Arico, on June 6, 1970 in San Pedro. Rich was a proud graduate of the University of Southern California where he earned a Business degree in 1970. He worked as a CPA and CFO for many years. Rich loved his family and especially taking them on skiing vacations to the river and the mountains. He and Susan enjoyed their travels, as well, as they saw much of the world together. He is survived by his loving wife Susan, his children Noelle (Brad) Hendrixson, Heather (Brad) Petrigala and Richie (Eileen) Hawley, his sister Carol (Mike) Tahmoush, and his four adored grandchildren Jane and Charlotte Hendrixson, Ben Petrigala, and Duke Hawley, as well as many nieces and nephews. He will be sorely missed by his family because our lives were made better by his guidance, his faith, and his love. Our hearts are fuller, our eyes are clearer, our minds are sharper, and our laughter is richer for having known and loved our Rich. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to in Rich's name.
