I knew Steve when I was a board member of the Metro Indianapolis Board Realtors in the 1970's. Was very friendly and excellent Realtor. I could tell back then her would do great things with the Hokanson Company. Very sorry to see this notice as I know Steve would continue to be a productive person. Jim Life
Charles O. McCormick III, MD left a message on May 8, 2024:
To All: Steve shared his expertise in leadership and fellowship assisting our team of Indiana University Beta Theta Pi brothers to re-colonize the chapter in 2003, and then renovate an abandoned fraternity house at 1200 North Jordan, Bloomington, into the home of IU's oldest fraternity! My friendship with him was highly regarded, and I was able to share some golf moments and occasional meal with him. Three teams, the chapter operators, the university interface team, and the real estate committee facilitated our work leading to the 2007 re-chartering, new occupancy, and resurrection of Beta IU! Steve Hokanson's generosity and leadership were beloved and never forgotten!

Kim, I was saddened to hear of Steve's passing. My prayers are for your comfort and peace in the coming days and months. I recall following the vote to "redo" Woodland, Steve flew Keith Gambrel, John Hart and me to Firestone for a couple of days of golf. Steve made a significant positive impact on everything in which he was involved. I am thankful to have known him and called him my friend.
mike rechin left a message on May 8, 2024:
steve defined what it means to be a gentleman in his personal life and professional life. he packed so much into his calendar and was always excited about his next venture. super smart on virtually any topic yet he always wanted to hear other's opinions. win-win relationships drove the hundreds of close relationships he enjoyed. he saw the way to great outcomes in every situation. fun to watch the massive priority he and kim made of his growing family over the last several years.....

Steve was a legend at Grey Oaks as President of the Grey Oaks Board and the driving force behind many new facilities. He also made significant contributions to the Grey Oaks POA by serving on the DRC and advising us on an office renovation. I personally thanked Steve for all he was doing for the POA just a few weeks ago, little did I know it would be the last time I would see him. Steve was a great guy and will be sorely missed. My heartfelt condolences to Kim and the extended family.

Steve’s passing is such a shock to me. We haven’t been close in recent years, but had a great history together, when we worked together on the Union Federal building and acquisition in 1984. Our relationship continued to grow with many golf and dining experiences. Steve was a class guy, always with a big smile and an open hand for anything I needed. I will miss him a great deal, and my heart goes out to Kim.

Deana and I have known Steve and Kim for a number of years through our relationship here in Naples. Throughout that time, Steve has been a friend that I could call and ask his advice on almost any subject. We are truly shocked at his passing at this time in his life. He had so much to live for and so much to give to others who were friends, business associates, and acquaintances. I can only imagine how much his character and love will be missed by his family and especially by his wife Kim. We send our thoughts and prayers to Kim and their family. David and Deana
