Not sure what to say?

Very tough to hear about the D A D. He was like a father figure to all of us that were so lucky to get to borrow the Riviera! Very happy memories i will not forget. My thoughts are with you Mrs. H; Cindy, Toddlee and Scott. He will rest easy with the Bono's at St. Josephs. With love...

I grew up with his son Todd in Lafayette Valley Estates. LR was always ready for a good conversation filled with stories and laughter. Leah babysat many of the children in our neighborhood. You'll be missed LR.

I used to work with 'LR' when I was a Line Assigner in Walnut Creek. He was funny, had me in stitches when telling me jokes, etc. He would tell me about his garden. To his family, please accept my sincere condolences on the passing of 'LR'.

I am sorry to hear of Hawk's passing. The years pass so quickly, and our loved ones leave us with the love and wisdom that they have shared. His legacy will continue to live in you and your children. It seems like yesterday that we all were so close and then life gets in the way. Our thoughts are with you and your family.

I was fortunate enough to know LR while he was working at the phone company. Certainly a man with the gift of gab and seems he knew everybody, co-workers and customers alike.
Rest in Peace, LR. You are the last of the best.


I knew "HAWK" for many years as a "Neighbor"; He was "One of a Kind";when he said he was moving to Auburn I told him: I was going to Miss Him and I was going to be a Orphan..I think he liked that. I would have a beer with him on his porch and get into a good conversation..just about Anything.
Of all the neighbors in this "Lafayette Valley Estates" No One was like him and there Never will be.
