We have known the Holcomb family for many years, and consider them as our second family. Hawk was dedicated state trooper. He loved being a trooper more than anyone that I have ever known. He also was a guy that loved his wife, children and God. Being around him was, well, shall I say a experience. I have so many fun Hawk memories it would be hard to name one. They would undoubtedly make a good book. I only know how intensely proud he would be of the way Marilyn has raised their children. He would definitely make one fun grandfather. He will always be in our hearts, we were blessed to have been a part of his life.
