We recently received the sad news that Clint Hawkins has passed away. Clint was Renderosity's E-Commerce/MarketPlace Manager from 1998-2007. He was a much loved member of the staff and was well-liked in the Renderosity community. Clint leaves his wife of 30+ years, Lillian Hawkins, and his daughter, Asher Hawkins, his son, Matt Hawk, along with his aunt, Jane Langford Gray, his cousins, Cris Kimel and Paul Ketzle, and his sister-in-law, Marianna Jacobsen-Gruenwald.

A resident of Nashville, Tennessee, Clint was an Owner / Artist at Gothic Blend 3D PrintsOperations Director at Hawkins Management and CEO & co-founder at YURdigital.

Clint's wife, Lillian, wrote this as a tribute and announcement about her husband's passing:

It is with a heavy heart that I must share the sad news that my beloved Clint Hawkins suddenly left this physical plane Monday night. He was truly the kindest, most honest, hardworking, dedicated man I have ever known. I am so thankful to have been loved by him and joyous to have loved him. Ours was a rare magical pairing spanning more than 30 years. He loved his children Matt Hawk and Asher Hawkins very much. He was so proud of both of you. He was devoted to his mom Carol Hawkins. He was honored to be of service to our community, to help others and never met a stranger. He was a talented artist, muscian, and techno wiz. He will live in my heart FOREVER. He wished everyone would be kind to one another. May that energy resonate through you also, as he loved all of you. ((BIG HUGS))

Our sympathies and condolences go out to Clint's wife, Lillian, and his daughter, Asher, son, Matt, along with his extended family. We want them to know that Renderosity members and staff have not forgotten Clint. We honor his life which was lived with passion and love. If you have memories of Clint Hawkins, please share them with the rest of the community in the comments.

I can't say I knew him but it's always sad to lose someone, whether they're family, friend, or work colleague. My sympathies go out to is family.
It's always hard when an artist passes even though their art remains.
Such a special man is surely enjoying his reward in Eternal Life. A strong hug to the family: try to follow his example and you will have the strength to go on until the time to meet him again forever.
As i didn't know the man i take the time to address my condolences to his family. Rest in peace Mister Hawkins.
OMG!!! What a shock and a sad one at that. He was always nice and what a creative mind. Such a loss for his family and the art community too. RIP and deepest condolence to the family and friends.
