Radio / TV Veteran Jim Hawthorne Dies
(November 7, 2007) "It is with a heavy heart that I inform you of the passing of my dad, Jim Hawthorne," emailed Jim's son Darr. "He died Tuesday afternoon shortly after I visited with him at the Buena Vista Care Center in Goleta. He was sedated, but was able to say a few words. It did not appear that he was in any pain, it was just his time. His 90th birthday would have been November 20."
