My deepest condolences. So very sorry for your loss. I worked with Hawk at Aeroquip-Inoac back in the day. He was always an upbeat find of guy and always had a joke to tell. Though it has been several years since I last seen Dave, He is someone that I will never forget. See you on the other side. Rest in peace, my friend.
