I didn't know him well but two Edmonton fests and some peripherals and it was easy to see he was a deserving fixture and a dedicated lighthearted guy.

Don't have any more details but have this on good authority.

He'll be missed.

I only crossed paths with Hokum twice, but he was always someone I was pleased to see on and off the pitch. I remember in Waterloo 2004, he took me aside and told me that "at these festivals, it's all about the hang."

Having done more festivals and knowing more people now, the times that I recall memories from them have indeed focused on my company. A sad reminder that yes, it is all about the hang, and you can never take seeing someone down the road for granted.

RIP Hokum.

Sad news.
He really was good one. Always full of great stories and original ideas.
I have very fond memories of time spent with him in Edmonton and Vancouver, wandering through junk shops and used book stores.
I'll miss him.

Love One of a kind

Wheeling down roads in heaven
The angels now his crowds
Playing ragtime on his tricycle
Circling in and out of clouds
