BELMONT — Paul J. Hawkins, 55, of Depot Street, peacefully passed away on Sunday, September 13, 2020, after many years of fighting pancreatic cancer and other major health complications with his daughters by his side at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, Lebanon.

Paul enjoyed riding his motorcycle with his friends & family, camping, family trips to the ocean (York Beach), family trips to the fairs, apple picking, watching the Red Sox and New England Patriots, cooking, family cookouts, and sitting around the fire with his family listening to music and making smores.
