PR man, professor Dick Hoover passes away

— Richard E. 'Dick' Hoover died at home on January 2, 2013. He was born on November 15, 1927 in Spokane, WA to Emanuel and Alice (Smith) Hoover. After military service he received his BA from Gonzaga University and during his working career he earned his Masters Degree from GU. His career varied, starting out as a radio news announcer in Okanagan, WA; he then accepted a job working as an assistant to Congressman Walt Horan in Washington D.C.; after two years he returned to Spokane to become the News Director of KREM Television; he then became a Journalism Professor at Eastern Washington University and finished his working career in Public Relations. Dick said he loved all of his jobs, but he found it incredible that someone was willing to pay him to talk on the radio.

It was Professor Dick Hoover who gave me my start in the public relations business in January of 1969, as an intern with the Thomas G. Hogan PR firm in Spokane, something I have always been grateful for. The Memorial Service will be held at Thornhill Valley Chapel, 1400 S. Pines Road in the Spokane Valley at 10:00 am on Saturday, January 12, 2013.

Good Start Ed. Knew Dick a little back when I first got to Spokane enjoying his company at Ad Club. He did important work. I remember you did me a good turn when I first opened my agency by referring me to Mandell's. Some things you never forget.
