Victim a dedicated community worker

By KATE BASTIANS,
The West Australian
November 29, 2011


The family and friends of the man killed by a skid-steer loader have described him as a jovial, multi-talented man who had dedicated his life to the community.

Kevan Hook, 72, died on Friday after the machine's operator accidentally reversed into him while he was laying reticulation pipes in parkland at the Morris Road Shopping Centre, Innaloo.

Son Michael Hook said his father was a giving man who had volunteered for many years at the Stirling Players theatre group as a stage director and Athletics WA, where he was a starter for 47 years.

"He was always lending a hand to the community," he said.

Mr Hook Sr was also one of Perth's longest-serving Father Christmases at shopping centres around Perth, including Karrinyup.

Mr Hook said the family did not blame the driver of the skid-steer loader for his father's death. "It was just an unfortunate accident, I don't hold him at fault in any way," he said.

He said his father had grown up in Kalgoorlie and moved to Girrawheen about eight years ago.

He had worked as a rigger, truck driver and crane driver but his heart really belonged to the stage and the community. Stirling Players secretary Carryn McLean said "the larger than life character" would be deeply missed.

"He built all our wonderful sets ," Ms McLean said.

"He could sing, he could act and he had a fabulous sense of humour. When I think of him it's hard not to smile, he was like a big, cuddly teddy bear."

She said it was ironic he had been killed in a work-related accident because he had always put a lot of emphasis on safety when he worked as a stage director.

He was a starter at dozens of events including the 1982 Commonwealth Games in Brisbane and he was a track official at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney.

Seniors Recreation Council president Hugh Rogers said Mr Hook had been a keen volunteer.
