From Len Wood:

Trappers, I just heard the sad news, Dave Hodder passed away of Cancer after a tough battle and painful last few years.  Dave and I were on our 6A crse in the late eighties and he is one helluva great Mover & friend.  He is a well-known entertainer on the piano for many of us Movers.  He & Stud had a favourite tune that they performed together called “House of The Rising Sun”.  Dave always looked for a piano everywhere he went.  Dave was a Loadie on the Boeing in 437 Sqn for a number of years in the 80s & 90s.  Last time I saw him he was at the Depot in 1 CFSD Toronto.  Your battle has ended, Trapper, your pain is over.  Rest In Peace, Trapper.   Condolences to family and friends.  We’ll meet again at the Pearly Gates.
