Donor Tributes

The Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Bank's mission is to fulfill the wishes of eye donors and their families to help another overcome blindness. The families of the donors below have chosen to honor the legacy left by their loved ones: the legacy of sight given to another through eye donation. Each of these donors moves, humbles and inspires us every day.

In Loving Memory of

Peter Hawkes

January 1993 - July 2016

Through Pete's Blue Eyes

We were so lucky to have Peter with us for 23 years. His mom, sister and I are forever greatful to the Rocky Mountain Lion eye bank for making it possible for Pete's beautiful blue eyes to live on in two recipients. It is comforting to know that Pete's life of caring and generousity did not end with his passing. We miss him every minute of each day, but are comforted by his gift of sight!

~ Tim, Peter's Father
