In Memoriam: Don Hoover

Don Hoover was a founding member of the Alberta Expropriation Association and attended the initial conference in 1988.  Don’s contribution to the Surface Rights and Expropriation fields was already well-established prior to the forming of the organization. He provided expert testimony on key surface rights and expropriation law that was established in the 1970s and 1980s – through to today.

Don built a reputation as an honest, humble and passionate person, with integrity that helped grow the agricultural/appraisal expert as a fundamental component to the development of the law on important issues. He had passionate support for AEA, contributing to conferences as a presenter and attendee. He always made an effort to attend even when conflicts arose as he felt it was vital to come and visit with his friends and colleagues, and remain up-to-date on the issues in the industry.

    While I have worked with Serecon, I never had the opportunity to personally engage Don on behalf of clients.  I did however, appear in many regulatory hearings in which he provided opinions for those opposed to my clients.  I attempted to cross-examine him several times.  I say attempted because it was like trying to cross-examine your kindly grandfather or a Jimmy Stewart character.  His opinions were always exceedingly well founded and it didn't hurt that he was the quintessential nice guy.  He garnered a huge amount of respect from those of us who practice in the property rights fields and I for one will miss his wisdom and friendship.
