As reported on the Hughes-Fans Yahoo Group:
I wanted to let everyone know that the comics industry has lost one of it’s true nice guys with the passing of Dave Hoover last night.
I haven’t gotten details as yet. He’s had open heart surgery twice, but when I spent most of the weekend with him in Baltimore last month, he was in great shape and even better spirits.
Sorry for the bust-in, but I wanted to let people know.
R.I.P. Dave. We enjoyed your art all of these years.
“His wife does/is checking his email account, so if you wish to send
condolences, or memories of Dave, feel free to. email@example.com
