The Oregon State Medical Examiner’s Office is asking for the public’s help in locating family for 56-year-old Kirk Forrest Reeves, who died over the weekend in Portland, Oregon.

Kirk was well known to many Portlanders from the white jacket and Mickey Mouse ears he wore as he played his trumpet at the West end of the Hawthorne Bridge. Kirk was also known to play music in Waterfront Park and Jamison Square.

Many Portland Police officers knew Kirk as he often had a wave and a smile for officers who saw him playing music.

It is believed that Kirk may have a sister in the Boston, Massachusetts area and cousins in Los Angeles, California, but the Medical Examiner is unable to locate any specific information to assist in notifying Kirk’s family.

The manner and cause of Kirk’s death is being withheld until family can be personally notified.

Reeves’ Oregon Drivers Licence photo is being released to assist in this case, but most know him by his white outfit, glasses and Mickey Mouse ears.

Anyone with information about Kirk’s family is asked to provide it to the Oregon State Medical Examiner’s Office, (971) 673-8220.

    It would be helpful if you could modify this blog entry so that it contains a photo and something of Portland’s relationship with him so that this could be effective when linked via social media.
