He leaves behind his loving mother, Karen Hawley; his father Brad Hawley and his wife, Gail; his sister Kara (Hawley) Doliber, husband, Willard Doliber and their daughter, Kira; his sister Emily (Hawley) Walker and her husband, Joshua Walker. He especially loved his children and would spend as much time as he could with them: Timothy (11 years old), Bella (10 years old) and Charlie (8 years old) Hawley.

He leaves the mother of his children Clair Hawley and her daughter Jenny. He also leaves his cousin Jackie Thompson, his uncle Gary and aunt Jacki Grano and their families, his aunt Deborah Hawley and uncle Doug.
