Geoffrey George Edmonston "Jeff" HAWKES


1938 - 2020
Geoffrey George Edmonston "Jeff" HAWKES Notice
HAWKES, Geoffrey George Edmonston, (Jeff), age 81, of West Yarmouth, passed away at home on March 13, 2020. He was born on December 12, 1938 in Jamaica Plain (Boston) to John and Margaret Hawkes (Brodie).

Jeff was preceded in death by brother Barry, of Watertown. Jeff leaves behind sister-in law Barbara (Russo) of Watertown/Bedford; brother William (Billy) and sister-in-law Diane (Hartnett) of Sunnyvale, CA; sister Diane of Visalia, CA, as well as daughters Lisa, of Duluth, GA and Valerie, of Wrentham, as well as his most adored grandchildren, Isobel, Sam (MA), and Jack (GA). Jeff was also a loving uncle to 6 nieces and nephews, and many cousins.

Professionally, he worked as a sales executive for Xerox for many years following his service in the United States Coast Guard (1958-1962).


Jeff spent his last 19 years in the cape house he and his beloved late wife of 42 years, Valerie Hawkes, had settled in together, watching the family they built grow. He beamed with pride to see his children and grandchildren flourish.

Jeff was a father figure to many, a guiding voice of reason, and an exemplar of loyalty. Spring through late September he could be found taking a dip in the ocean followed by a long nap in the sun, always clad in shorts, sandals, and cruising in his famed red Jeep (aka: the Roadster). Above all he adored his beloved pets, Luna and Jenny, and more than anything, bringing joy and laughter to his friends, family, and anyone lucky enough to cross his path. Though those left behind dearly miss his warmth, Jeff can finally be reunited with his beloved wife after so many long years waiting for her.

Due to current concerns about coronavirus we are unable to hold a public service. A celebration of life will be held in Jeff's honor when it becomes possible, in Wrentham, Massachusetts.The family requests that those who can bring plantable hydrangeas, a cherished favorite for Valerie and Jeff.
