With profound regret we wish to share the sad news that Maynard Tapp passed away on September 12, 2017.
Maynard founded Hawk in 1985 and was a prominent figure in the Alaskan business community. His tireless support of the Alaska oil, gas and energy industry coupled with his passion for community engagement will be difficult to replace. At his core, Maynard was a people person - helping thousands secure employment over the course of his career. His genuine concern for the well-being of everyone he met – employees, clients, suppliers, and colleagues - was legendary.
Maynard was a good friend and a caring and ethical business partner. We will miss his smile and wise counsel.
A memorial service is planned for 3:00 PM on October 15th at the Wendy Williamson Auditorium on the campus of University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA). Please refer to the obituary below for additional information.
