Police Officer Noel Hawk suffered a fatal heart attack shortly after breaking up at a fight at a fast food restaurant in the 100 block of Oak Street at approximately 8:00 pm.

He and several other officers had responded to a dispute between an adult and a juvenile and were able to calm the situation before clearing the scene. A short time later several family members and friends of the subjects arrived at the location and a disturbance occurred.

Officers responded to the scene again and were placing two subjects under arrest when Officer Hawk suddenly collapsed. CPR was initiated but he was not able to be revived.

Officer Hawk had served with the Eatonton Police Department for 12 years. He is survived by his five children, parents, and a brother.

Noel was one of a very few GREAT person's that I ever had the privalege to come across and associate with during my LE career. He never met a stranger and he never forgot a friend. I am proud to say that Noel and I were True Friends. Even though he and I had not seen or spoke to each other for more years than I want to admit. About a year before his untimely death, he and I had a very lengthy conversation about new things and a whole lot of old things. During that conversation, neither of us could believe that it had been in the 1980's since we touched base and he remarked that it really didnt seem that long ago. He will be sadly missed by all who really knew him! RIP My Friend, I salute YOU.
