It is with deep sorrow that we share the news of the passing of NPD volunteer Jim Hawley. Many of you may remember Jim when he was teaching at Newport High School. He was a volunteer for the Newport Police Department for nearly ten years and served as Municipal Court Bailiff for the past few years with his wife, Nancy.
Jim was instrumental in outfitting both our Incident Response Vehicles for the Department. He was the Lincoln County Emergency Manager for more than 40 years; very active with CERT and Lincoln County Amateur Radio Operators.
Our heartfelt condolences to his wife, Nancy, his sons Jeff and Dennis, and the entire Hawley family. We have all lost a truly amazing gentleman and a friend.
Mayor Dean Sawyer
