Hawk grew his angel’s wings at Sanford Hospital Fargo surrounded by his loving wife and children. He was born in Harvey, ND February 18, 1941 to Walter and Anna (Solheim) Hakanson.
Hawk graduated from Fessenden High School in 1958 and went on to college at NDSU and graduated with a degree in Agriculture Economics. He served in the US Airforce from 1966-1972. Hawk was very proud to be a veteran. He worked at Federal Land Bank in Fargo, Lakeside State Bank in NewTown, Farmers Home Administration(FHA) in NewTown, and State FSA offices in Bismarck and Fargo until his retirement at age 62.
In 1963 he married the one and only love of his life, Gloria Pellett in Fessenden, ND. They have three children and nine grandchildren. Hawk enjoyed hunting, fishing, woodworking, “tinkering”, and especially spending time with his family during the summer months at the lake. If anything needed to be fixed, you asked Hawk. He was a member of Hope Lutheran Church in Fargo, ND. Church was very important to him and enjoyed his adult bible study group.
