On Sunday, July 14th,2013 Kendall J May and Rebecca “Becci” Joan Hawkins May died as they had lived, together.
Kendall was born June 30th, 1964. He grew up in a noisy loving household in Spanish Fork, Utah and was very close to his eight siblings. He was known for being handsome, fun, and accepting of everyone. He graduated from Spanish Fork High School in 1982, and then served an LDS mission in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Becci and her twin sister Bobbi were born February 19th, 1967 in Billings, Montana and were immediately adopted by Del and Donna Hawkins. Both girls became cherished additions to the Hawkins family. Becci grew up in Billings Montana and is described by family and friends as loving, fun, and “Sunshine”. She graduated from Billings Senior High School in 1985 and then attended Ricks college in Idaho where she obtained her Associates Degree.
Kendall and Becci met while they were both attending Utah Valley State College, and their adventure together began. They were married on June 28th, 1989 in Manti,Utah.
During the early years of their marriage they were blessed with three daughters, and Becci supported Kendall as he obtained a degree in Occupational Therapy from Colorado State University. Throughout their 24 years of marriage they lived in Utah, Colorado, Montana, and Iowa. At the time of their death they resided in Eagle Point, Oregon where Kendall worked as an Occupational Therapist, and Becci worked as a Patient Service Representative at a nearby healthcare company.
Wherever they lived, Becci’s loyalty and unselfishness, and Kendall’s humility and gentle soul combined with their zany sense of humor and fun loving nature easily drew people into their circle of friends. They also devoted countless hours to serving in their church and quietly touched and influenced many lives for good.
If asked what their greatest achievement in life was, both Kendall and Becci would enthusiastically agree it was raising their three beautiful and amazing daughters Ryanne, Melissa, and Sydney. They were devoted parents and loved nothing more than spending time with their girls and helping them achieve their dreams.
They are survived by their three daughters Ryanne May, Melissa May, and Sydney May of Eagle Point, OR.
Becci is survived by her mother Donna Hawkins of Billings, Montana; sisters Allene (Mickey) Pellinen of Billings, Montana; Bobbi (Dave) Hoffman of Johnstown, Colorado; and brother Steve (Deanie) Hawkins of Billings Montana.
