Robert Hawkins Obituary, Death – On Saturday, January 21, 2023, Robert F. Hawkins, a brother firefighter from the Long Branch Fire Department, passed away. He was 65 years old. At the time of his departure, he was 92 years old, and the division is inconsolable over the news of his loss. When Mr. Hawkins joined the Long Branch Fire Department and the West End Engine Company in 1961, he immediately became qualified to receive retirement benefits from both organizations.
Due to the fact that he did this, he was able to become a life member of both of the organizations. Over the course of his many years of service, Mr. Hawkins was a member of many different committees, and in 1968, he was promoted to the role of Captain of West End. According to many who knew Bob and would undoubtedly concur with this evaluation of him if they were questioned about it, Bob was a good man who never spoke ill of anyone and never had anything unpleasant to report on anyone.
He also never had anything negative to say on anyone. Funeral services are scheduled to take place at the Woolley-Boglioli Funeral Home in Long Branch, which can be found at 10 Morrell Street, on Sunday, February 5, 2023. The services are scheduled to take place between the hours of 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. The location of the funeral home is at number 10 Morrell Street. The firefighter services are scheduled to begin at 11:45 in the morning, and the military services are scheduled to begin immediately after them, at approximately the same time.
No later than 11:30 in the morning is when all of the members and the apparatus are to congregate together. You are obliged to dress appropriately in either uniforms of the class “A” level or any other clothes that is deemed appropriate. Nice man. The firehouse served as a gathering spot for spectators during a number of Yankee games, where they could watch the action together. I really hope you are able to get some rest, Bob.
