Dutch is survived by his wife, Mrs. Evelyn Raye Shoffner Dawkins; four sons: Tyrone Dawkins (Chantelle), Quenton Dawkins (Margaret), Raphael Sean Dawkins (Roslyn), and Kyle Connell Dawkins (Raleta); eight grandchildren: Marcus, Kiah, Kameron, Jordan, Ryan, Xavier, Natalia, and Dakota; and one bonus grandson, Nathaniel. He was preceded in death by a grandson, Jaye. A celebration of life service will be held at 10:30am on Monday, October 4, 2021 at St. Matthews United Methodist Church, Greensboro, officiated by the Rev. Rod Ingram. A brief visitation will be held prior to the service, beginning at 10:00am. Following the celebration of life service, the Rev. Dawkins will be laid to rest at Lakeview Memorial Park, 3600 N Ohenry Blvd, Greensboro, NC 27405. The family welcomes flowers, though if wishing to send a memorial donation, please designate it to St. Matthews United Methodist Church, 600 E Florida St, Greensboro, NC 27406. Rev.
