David “Dave” R. Hawes, age 66, died of colon cancer on June 24, 2017, at Cottage In The Meadow in Yakima, WA.  Dave found great joy in serving his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and spending time with his beautiful wife of 42 years, Judy.  Dave was born on February 8, 1951 in Prineville, Oregon, to parents, Sheldon and Carol Hawes.  He was one of six children, Diane (Tim) Kutcher, Daryl (Connie) Hawes, Daniel (Tilena) Hawes, Douglas (Danelle), and Delynn (Mike) McBride, and has many nieces and nephews.

Dave spent 40 years selling real estate in Yakima and used it as a tool to positively impact people.  He would often say that his hobby in life was helping others, and he did it so well.  Dave served on the board of a number of nonprofits over the years, including Great Commandment Ministries, Yakima Union Gospel Mission and West Side Church.   Family and friends will remember his wisdom, sense of humor, his willingness to help others, and the strength he provided during the most difficult situations.

He is survived by his wife, Judy Hawes, of Yakima, and their daughter, Shelly (Adam) Werner, and children, Hadlie and Jackson, all of Banks, OR, and their son, Ryan (Danielle) Hawes, and child, Brooklyn, all of Boise, ID. Dave is also survived by his mother, Carol Hawes, of Centralia, WA.  He is preceded in death by his father, Sheldon Hawes.

The family wishes to give a special thanks to the Berkshire Hathaway Real Estate Family and the West Side Church Family.

A Celebration of Life Service is planned for Thursday, June 29, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. at West Side Church (6901 Summitview Drive, Yakima).  All are welcomed to attend and celebrate Dave’s life.  In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to Great Commandment Ministries, Yakima Union Gospel Mission, or West Side Church, in care of Brookside Funeral Home (PO Box 1267, Moxee, WA 98936).
