From a St. John’s newsgroup posting, Wednesday, June 6, 2004:

Friends -

Fr. Kelly and family with C. A. Hocker in Oklahoma City
I wanted to share with you the Obituary [see below] for our C. A. Hocker.  C. A. developed our Web site while he was a parishioner here at St. John’s, and continued that ministry after he moved back to Oklahoma City in 1998.  I met him once, last summer, on my vacation drive to Arizona and found him to be a very nice fellow.  His ministry to the parish will be missed.  The cause of death has been determined as accidental carbon monoxide poisoning at the age of 39.  May he rest in peace.
