He was a business entrepreneur and tireless advocate for Multiple Sclerosis research. He was born in New Brunswick, New Jersey November 22, 1924 to Roy Randolph Hawthorne and Anna May Waelde. After a courageous battle against multiple sclerosis, his wife Dorothy Troll Hawthorne passed away in 2000; they were married in 1946. Colonel Hawthorne was engaged to Louise F. Samuel of Honolulu at the time of his death. He leaves behind his son Randolph Hawthorne and daughter-in-law Carliss Baldwin of Brookline, Massachusetts, and daughter Victoria Hawthorne of San Francisco. He is also survived by grandchildren Clare of New York City and Nicholas of Los Angeles. They were all together recently in Honolulu celebrating Victor’s early 90th birthday. Colonel Hawthorne graduated from De Pauw University in 1948 with a B.A. and earned his MBA from George Washington University in 1960. He had an illustrious Army career that began in 1942. History placed him at the Battle of the Bulge during World War II as an infantry soldier in the 75 INF Division. He was commissioned in the Quartermaster Corps and stationed in London. That was the beginning of assignments in Germany, Korea, Turkey and later at the Pentagon. Colonel Hawthorne retired from the U.S. Army of Pacific as a Logistician in 1973 having received a number of U.S. and foreign awards. Colonel Hawthorne was a financier and philanthropist. He was one of the founders and an emeritus board member of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society Hawaii Division. He chaired many events, raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for multiple sclerosis research and received the Society’s Distinguished Service Award in 2005. The Colonel was always visible in the Honolulu social community as a fashionably attired gentleman, from black tie to full Scottish garb. He was an avid golfer and a long time member of Oahu Country Club who will be fondly remembered by its members as one of the old-style “characters”. He particularly enjoyed a round of golf with his son Randy. An enthusiastic world traveler, there were few places around the globe where he had not cast a shadow. Many trips were aboard his favorite ship Crystal Serenity. He was a member of the Outrigger Canoe Club, the Saint Andrews Society of Hawaii, the Caledonian Society of Hawaii, and a Mason in good standing. Victor was a non-press stalwart of the Honolulu Press Club and its annual Gridiron shows. Collecting fine art and unique automobiles were two of his many hobbies and the Colonel had an appreciation for fine pipe tobacco.

He will be laid to rest next to his late wife, Dorothy. There will be a Celebration of Life at Oahu Country Club following the Punchbowl services.
