In Passing

Dick Hogan

Mike Brenny

SaddleBrooke lost a long time resident and friend to many when Dick Hogan passed away on Saturday, November 25. Dick had many monikers (Diesel Dick, Mort, RJ the third, Richard) all reflecting the love and respect from family and friends. He was bigger than life in all respects.

Dick lived life to the fullest. As a Navy veteran, a graduate of the Maritime Academy and a chief engineer for a major shipping firm Dick loved the water. He felt at home at sea. After retirement Dick filled his SaddleBrooke life with motor homing, fishing, archery and cycling. He was an active member of the SaddleBrooke Cyclemasters and participated in local rides as well as club cycling trips both domestic and international.

Dick was the consummate handyman. He could fix anything and frequently did when called upon by his friends. He was always the first one to show up and the last one to leave. He welcomed the challenge whether it be electronic, mechanical or computer related. He could do it all.

Dick’s greatest love and devotion were to his family. Dick cherished those times and created memories for all those he left behind. He will be sorely missed.

There will not be a memorial service; however, the family asked that you make a donation in his name to your favorite charity or, if you so desire, you could donate to the preservation fund at the San Xavier Mission at Patronato San Xavier, P.O. Box 522, Tucson, Arizona 85702. The San Xavier Mission was a special place for Dick and Trudy. They felt at peace when visiting there.

Trudy and their children, Richard and Colleen, would like to thank everyone for their love and support during this difficult time. Richard and Colleen are comforted knowing their mother is in good hands with all her great neighbors and friends in SaddleBrooke.

Those that knew Dick are sad that he’s gone, but are thankful that they were able to spend at least a part of their lives in his presence. Bon voyage, Dick.
