It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of William P. Hawk.

Bill loved his life serving his community of Bath, as a lifetime member of the Bath Fire Department, where he was Chief from 1975-77, also as an EMT and treasurer for the Bath Ambulance Corps. Bill was employed at BGE where he retired after 36 years.
Bill's life touched so many fortunate enough to know him, with his positive attitude and can do nature. He was a motor sports enthusiast and classic car collector. He raced and crewed all his life. In his later years, Bill spent time with his son and grandson building and racing drag cars, which gave him so much joy.
When not in the garage, he could be found sailing at Keuka Lake with his brother, or fishing a stream in Pulaski. If you knew him, you know how much he will be missed.
