Eaton, OHIO – HAWKEY, Keith E., age 84, of Eaton passed away peacefully and surrounded by his loved ones on December 11, 2019. Keith was born in Darke County, Ohio on March 4, 1935 to the late Chalmer and Hazel Hawkey. He graduated from New Madison High School in 1953. After completing his education, Keith proudly and honorably served in the United States Army. He married the love of his life, Wilma, in 1959.

Keith went on to work and retire from Delco – Moraine after many years of loyal service. Keith and his late wife were long time members of Community Christian Church. In his free time, Keith enjoyed working on his yard, gardening and mowing, and volunteering for the local food bank. He had a heart for service and could always be counted on to drive the church bus and taking care of the church lawn. Keith found much joy in cheering his favorite teams, the Bengals, Reds, Buckeyes, and Spartans on to victory. He took great pride in his family and loved to spend time with them.

Keith had a loving heart and a smile that could light up a room. He was a loving, caring, and compassionate husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend. He will be greatly missed and lovingly remembered by all who knew him.

In addition to his parents, Keith was preceded in death by his loving wife of 56 years, Wilma Hawkey; brothers, Max, Garth, and Wayne; and sisters, Patty, Phyllis, and Barbara.
Keith leaves to cherish his memory, loving children, Penney (Gary) Douglas, Debbie (Gregg) Cottingim, and Joseph Hawkey; sister, Shirley Holsapple; 14 grandchildren, Emily, Ryan, Shaw, Shawn, Katie, Patrick, Anna, Kelsey, Morgan, Fiona, Garrett, Emma, Abby, and Christopher; and a host of loving nieces, nephews, cousins, and dear friends.

Viewing to be held at Community Christian Church (11 Dorsey Akers Dr., West Alexandria, Ohio 45381) on Saturday, December 21, 2019 from 10am - 11am.
