ASBURY, Mo. — Kristopher "Cade" Hawkins, age 24, of Asbury, Mo. (formerly of Carl Junction, Mo.), passed away Saturday, June 15, 2013,  after a fatal car accident.

Cade was born March 19, 1989, to Jimmy D. and Susan (Winder) Hawkins. Cade was a 2007 graduate of Carl Junction High School, he was an avid outdoorsman who lived life to the fullest. However, his greatest accomplishment was being Zoey's dad. Zoey and her dad only had 13 months together, but he loved her and watched over her every single day of his life. Now, he is her guardian angel... still loving her... still watching over her... every single day, for the rest of her life.

Additional survivors include many cousins and other extended family members, as well as a host of friends including lifelong friends and others he may have just met, but instantly were drawn to him and his friendliness. Cade was preceded in death by his maternal grandmother, Lucille Winder, of Webb City; maternal grandfather, Bill Winder, of Joplin; and paternal grandparents, Norma and Buck Hawkins, of Webb City.

Funeral services for Cade will be at 2 p.m. Friday at the First Baptist Church of Webb City, with burial to follow in Pleasant Hill Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 5 to 7  p.m. Thursday at the First Baptist Church in Webb City.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to Zoey's Care, a fund established for the care and future education of his daughter. Contributions may be made in care of the funeral home or any US Bank.
