CUYAHOGA FALLS - Douglas S. Hawkins, 59, died May 4, 2018.
Born in Alliance, he was married 35 years to the love of his life, Susan. Doug was a loved son, brother, husband, father, uncle, grandfather, friend, and coach. He spent most of his last 20 plus years on the softball field coaching and with family. He was a family man through and through. His love for his kids and his wife and anyone he came in contact with was larger than life. He has impacted more people in his short lifetime than most people ever will. He loved camping in Canada, bike riding, vacationing in Hilton Head, mowing the softball fields and above all, coaching softball for his daughters, for Stow-Munroe Falls High School, and for his Tigerlillies.
