More than 200 people gathered under the Hawthorne Bridge Sunday to celebrate the life of “Working Kirk Reeves.” Reeves was known for wearing a white tuxedo and mickey mouse ears. He entertained commuters with his trumpet and magic tricks. The memorial included trumpet performances, a live band, speeches, and a candlelight vigil march across the bridge.
