JOHN PATRICK (JACK) HOGAN

Peacefully, with family by his side, Jack Hogan passed away on Thursday, Feb. 22, 2018 at La Verendrye General Hospital in Fort Frances, Ont.

He was born on Jan. 18, 1941 in Fort Frances to Edmund and Helen Hogan.

He leaves behind his children, Randy (Connie), Rick (Twila), and Jackie (Chris), and special friend, Kathy; grandchildren, Brody and Brayden Hogan, Nathan Hogan, and Ethan and Joclyn Armit; great-grandchild, Charlie Armit; and numerous nieces and nephews.

He also leaves behind his siblings, Bob (Marie) Hogan, Lynne Crawford, Joanne Hodgins, Janice Carpenter, Mike (Dan) Hogan, and Jeff (Carol) Hogan.

Jack was predeceased by his parents; wife, Elaine; in-laws, Richard and Elizabeth Carpenter; sister, Sandra Merko; sister-in-law, Doris Brown; and brothers-in-law, Stan Brown, Steve Crawford, Art and Dennis Carpenter, and Delbert Merko.

As a young man, Jack worked at Sand Island Falls picking logs. He also worked at Green’s Furniture for many years and then started his own business, Jack’s Men’s Wear.

He also was the manager of Guillevin International and ended his sales career with Acklands.

During his retirement years, Jack liked going to casinos. He also liked gardening, woodworking, and pontoon boating/fishing with family and friends. He was a “Jack” of all trades.

“Buppa” always will be remembered by his grandchildren for keeping his cars very shiny and clean, sleepovers, his sense of humour, giving them lucky pennies before skating competitions and hockey tournaments, his huge heart, and his immaculate yard/garden.

Dad, you will be in our hearts and thoughts forever . . . until we meet again!

Cremation has taken place and a private family service will be held at a later date.

If friends so desire, in memoriam donations may be made to Riverside Health Care.
