Craig Hawksley Death, Cause Of Death – Long-time comedian Craig Hawksley, best known as the “Dobb’s Guy” from local television commercials,  has passed away peacefully at age 69. Hawksley was at the forefront of popularizing local comedy clubs in STL in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Hawksley’s cause of death was not made known to the public.

A 1970 graduate of St. Mary’s High School, Hawksley was arguably the first star on a burgeoning local circuit that included Joe Marlatt, Dan Chopin, Kathleen Madigan and Dan O’Sullivan.

Among his survivors are three daughters, Ally Hawksley, Emma Hawksley and Caity Leuken; and one grandson, Ozzy Leuken. He also is survived by his ex-wife, former Webster Groves Mayor Terri Williams.

Visitation will be from 1 to 7 p.m. Jan. 14 at Kutis Funeral Home, 10151 Gravois Road. Memorials should go to St. Mary’s High School.

RIP Craig Hawksley . . . 2021 delivers another gut punch before running out the clock. I’ll have a lot more to say about this in 2022 but it’s going to take some time to process the loss of a friend of over 40 years. My heart goes out to Terri Williams and Craig’s three daughters and infant grandson … Here’s to a better 2022 . . . it can’t get here soon enough.
