Near the midnight hour, on a calm Fall Sunday night September 13, 2020 Almighty God in his divine wisdom reached down in Augusta, Georgia and called home the soul of our father, grandfather, cousin and friend Mr. Bobby Hogan affectionately known as “Poppy-Yo” and “Red Fox”.
The son of the late Ace Hogan and Maude Ferguson Hogan Mariney was born on December 29, 1929 in Lincoln County, Georgia. Along with his parents, he was reunited in heaven with his children Maude Estelle Murray, Baby Hogan, Douglas Calvin Hogan and siblings David Hogan, L.B. Hogan, Pleas Hogan, Mattie Lou Zellars, Camille Leverette, and Blanche Mariney who had preceded him in death.
At an early age he confessed Christ and joined Cades Chapel Baptist Church where he remained faithful until his health failed. Mr. Hogan was employed at an early age by the Aycock Brothers Logging Company and later Aycock Logging Company. Throughout his career of 60 years as a truck driver he logged millions of miles in the area hauling timber. He was a member of Cade’s Chapel Baptist Church where he had served as a Deacon for many years and was blessed to baptize all of his children himself.
He leaves to cherish his memories his loving wife Lillie B. Hogan; four sons, James “Bro” Hogan and wife Patricia Willis, Lincolnton, Edward Hogan and wife Grace of Elberton, Kenny Hogan and wife Cassandra of Augusta, William Darryl Hogan and wife Koshie; six daughters, Eunice Sapp, Bobbie Jean Hogan, Jenell Crew and husband Charlie all of Lincolnton, Rosa Starks Freeman of Augusta, Teresa Ware and husband Walter of Lincolnton, Patricia Staton and husband Travis of Athens; one sister, Della Elizabeth Lowe of Augusta; brother-in-law Willie Raiford of Athens; three sisters-in-law Sylvia Lue Ardister of Elberton, Eula Stokes and husband Oscar of Lincolnton, Annie Laura Windfield of Knoxville, TN; 36 grandchildren; 88 great- grandchildren and 8 great- great grandchildren and a host of nieces and nephews; special friend Nakita Hearst.
