You may remember my post about Hawthorne Boulevard in Portland a few years ago. I’m sad to report Working Kirk Reeves, the fellow rocking the white tux and Mickey Mouse hat, has passed away. He had suffered health problems recently, and died by his own hand. A memorial service was held Sunday under the west side of the Hawthorne Bridge, where Mr. Reeves was a daily fixture, playing trumpet and telling jokes to commuters. RIP. Favicon
