In 1970, Mr. Hawkins relocated to Stamford, Connecticut. There he met Janet Davis: and the two were united in marriage in 1976. He remained a Connecticut resident for 52 years.

He was passionate about cooking and took pride in teaching others what he knew about the art. As a youth, he attended church in North Carolina.
