Larry Lee Hawkins
01/03/1941 - 05/16/2019
Larry passed away on May 16, 2019 after spending what he called a “great day” visiting with family and
friends. He was born in Torrance, California to Farrell and Lenna Bell Hawkins. Larry was raised in
Murray, Utah and attended all 3 major Utah universities before graduating from Utah State University.
In 1963, he met and married the love of his life, Peggie, to whom he was happily married for forty-eight
years. Together they raised five children.
After getting married, Larry obtained his CPA license. He worked for the State of Utah before moving to
the private sector, working for Sartoris and Electronic Data Systems until his retirement. Larry loved to
travel and enjoyed many family vacations over the years, including every year until his passing. He
particularly enjoyed his many trips to Hawaii with Peggie. In addition to traveling, Larry was an avid
reader, enjoyed Utah football games, and loved maintaining an immaculate house and yard.
Everyone who met Larry was treated to his dry wit and sarcasm, but also quickly found he was very
caring, humble and generous. He was a great husband, father and grandfather, and will be missed by all
who were lucky enough to know him. He is survived by three children: Christopher C. Ottley, Stacee
Mitchell, and Jonathan Larry Hawkins; 10 grandchildren; and 10 great-grandchildren. He is preceded in
death by his wife, Peggie, Carrie Fairbourn (daughter) and Scott Ottley (son).
A Memorial Gathering in his honor will be held at 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 23, 2019, at Larkin Sunset Gardens, 1950 E. Dimple Dell Rd. (10600 S.), Sandy, Utah.
