Kenneth Houston Hawes passed over to be with the Lord on Wednesday, September 14 at the Circle of Life Hospice at Legacy Village in Bentonville.

They moved to Little Flock, Arkansas in 1938.
Kenneth graduated from Rogers High School in 1952 and was immediately drafted into the U.S Army where he served two years during the Korean War. He was stationed in Germany for eight months.
After coming out of the Army, Kenneth did survey out West for several years. He managed Hornor's Tire (later called Northwest Tire Service) in Springdale for eleven years. He purchased the business in 1974, and later purchased Northwest Tire Service in Rogers. He was active in his business until 2013, when he became unable to work, due to his illness growing worse.

Kenneth and Ann moved to Little Flock, Arkansas in 1962, to the place where he was raised. He loved viewing good cattle, and they developed a good herd of Limousin Cattle. They sold their herd and land in the fall of 2004.
He is survived by his wife of the home; son, Barry Hawes and Sherrie of Fayetteville; 2 daughters, Deborah Bilderback and Sidney, and Elizabeth Doublehead, both of Gravette; brother, Billy Hawes and Leota of Kansas City, Missouri; 3 grandchildren, Brekke Autry and Derrick of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Kyle Bilderback of Springdale and Dillon Doublehead of Gravette; and 2 great-grandchildren, Remington and Lou-Lou Autry.
