> Dear Vascular Colleagues,
> Gene Hokanson's wife Sigrid called me today to tell me that Gene died this
> weekend in an aircraft accident in Everett Washington.
> You all know Gene and Sigrid through their vascular diagnosis equipment
> business, ( http://www.deh-inc.com/ ) providing Doppler and
> plethysmographic systems and custom made cuffs.
> Gene became a pioneering engineer in the field of noninvasive
> diagnosis after joining Gene Strandness at the VA Hospital in Seattle more
> than 35 years ago. He created innovative diagnostic systems that were in
> such demand that he started the business in his basement to provide the
> instruments required by this quickly growing field.
> I especially valued my friendship with Gene because he was always willing
> to help with odd instruments that I wanted for projects. Gene
> recently supplied plethysmographs for monitoring finger sympathetic
> response in couples during conversations about spending habits.
> I visited Gene at their home early this summer on a rare sunny morning in
> Seattle. In addition to the wisdom that he shared, he told me about his
> love of flying.
> Gene and Sigrid have two children, Kyra who is director of marketing
> at Hokanson Vascular and Arvid who produces radio shows at Seattle's KUOW
> public radio station.
> Services have not yet been announced.
