Hokanson, age 89 of Porter, IN, passed away on April 11, 2019 at his home,
surrounded by his loving family. He was born on May 18, 1929 in Hobart, IN
to Henning and Violet Hokanson, both of whom preceded him in death.
He is survived by
his loving wife of 66 years, JoAnn Simms Hokanson of Porter, IN; his
daughters, Becky Muraro of Porter, IN and Lisa Hokanson of Porter, IN; his
grandchildren, David (Haley) Scott of Chesterton, IN and Carrie Samila of
LaPorte, IN; and by his great-grandchildren, Gavin Scott of Porter, IN,
Victoria Scott of Chesterton, IN, Jerry Scott of Chesterton, IN, Fiona Scott
of Chesterton, IN, and Johnny Speakman of LaPorte, IN.
He is also preceded
in death by his daughter, Trudy Scott, on December 11, 2008; his grandson,
Jason Scott on December 1, 2012; his brother and sister-in-law, Edwin (Lila)
Hokanson; his sister and brother-in-law, Barbara (Kenneth) Humbert; and by
his sister, Linnea Hokanson.
David was a member
of Porter United Methodist Church and was also a member of Local 697 I.B.E.W.
for 58 years.
There was nothing
that David couldn’t fix; cars, appliances and he enjoyed construction
projects. Everyone knew they could depend on him for his assistance, which
is why JoAnn never had a repairman in her home for 66 years.
A Celebration of
Life will be held at a later date. Arrangements are under the care of
White-Love Funeral Home, Chesterton, IN.
may be given to Dunes Hospice, 4711 Evans Ave., Valparaiso, IN 46383, for
their wonderful care.
