In Memory Of Don Hokanson

We at the DPOA
mourn the loss of our friend and Committee Member Don Hokanson. Don was a Pomona Ambassador of the First Order. Everyone who knew him was amazed at his historical knowledge of our City and his unending energy in promoting all that was good and could be good about Pomona.

On a personal note, whenever I asked Don for help, he never said no.
