Obituary

Reggie Allen Hawkins, lovingly known as “Ace,” was born on October 21, 1970, in Chicago, IL, to the union of Betty Gene and Jerry Hawkins. Reggie was a proud graduate of Jones Commercial High School. Later, he was blessed to graduate from Malcolm X College. He accepted Christ, under the leadership of Superintendent Boaz Landfair, and transitioned to the pastoral leadership of Brandon Landfair, at Unity Sanctuary which became Life Anew. He later became a proud member of Tabernacle of Prayer Ministries under the leadership of Bishop James E. Stevens, Missionary G. Stevens, and Elder J. Terrell Stevens. Reggie met the love of his life, LaTonya T. Parks, and made his best friend of twenty-six years, his wife for 22 years. In their union two beautiful children, Tyler and Kennedy, were raised in a home filled with love and laughter. Reggie has been blessed to always be a provider for his family. Recently, he worked at O’Hare Airport fueling the various aircrafts. Reggie was a respected member of the Major League Riders MC. He was the life of the party. Everyone loved his charisma and positive vibes he brought to every place he entered. He absolutely loved music, even being a DJ on his phone, at every family event. He loved his family and friends, but his children were his life and greatest joy. Reggie was born into eternity on December 14, 2021. He was preceded in death by his father, Jerry; his father-in-law, K.C. Parks; paternal uncles, Preston Hawkins, Jr., Clifton Hawkins, and Frank Hawkins; three paternal aunties, Martha Hendrix, Audrey Hawkins, and Eula Hawkins; three maternal uncles, Ulysses Hartford, Billy Hartford, and Henry Hartford; two maternal aunties, Anna Swain and Isarie Cook; and his best friends J.T. and Christopher.
