That is a great photograph, capturing the twinkle in Harvey's eye. I remember that look at many MUD Board meetings. I also remember watching Mary Anne and Harvey twirling around the dance floor at AWBD, enjoying every type of music, when other dancers were having to take a breather. I'm so glad to have known Harvey and to have these memories. Truly a Southern gentleman, extremely knowledgeable and charming to be with, who always embodied the highest standards and inspired those around him to do the same.

I am so sorry to hear of Harvey's passing. He was a special person. I first met Harvey while he was at TC&B and I was with Wilber Smith. We frequently met at prospective clients to each pitch our firms for consultant contracts. Later he and Mary Ann served on our MUD Boards as developer reps for Jefferson Development.

Wayne Meyer, Houston, Texas

What a wonderful man. Harvey will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Mary Anne and family.

Harvey Eugene Hawkins, 85, of Houston, Texas passed away peacefully on January 10, 2014 after a short battle with lung cancer. Harvey was born on Christmas Day 1928 in Little Rock, Arkansas. He received a BS degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Arkansas and a graduate certificate from the Yale University Bureau of Highway Traffic. He began his career as a traffic engineer with the City of Houston in 1955. He also worked for Turner Collie and Braden, Inc. before returning to the City of Houston as Assistant Director of Traffic & Transportation, from which he retired in 1995. He was a registered professional engineer in three states. He married Mary Anne Pinckney on April 10, 1954 and he was devoted to her through almost 60 years of marriage. On Christmas Day, the entire family celebrated Christmas, his 85th birthday, and an early celebration of their 60th anniversary. Harvey was a long-time member of Bethany Christian Church and the Institute of Transportation Engineers. He will be remembered as a true Southern gentleman who lived a life of absolute integrity. Harvey was preceded in death by his parents, Luther and Vera Hawkins, and his brother Luther “Bill” Hawkins, Jr. Survivors include his wife, Mary Anne, son and daughter-in-law Gene and Kathe Hawkins, daughter and son-in-law Cindy and Robert Moore, two grandchildren Hannah and Thomas Hawkins, cousins, and many friends and other family.
