Rest in peace, Uncle Jack Hogan. Our condolences to you, Aunt Rosemary, and all your children. Dan, Judi, Emily and Elizabeth
Rest in Peace, Uncle Jack. I always loved your stories and how you made everyone laugh ! And of course good times in 'Hogan's Alley' !
Jack, We are deeply indebted to you for all the love and support you gave to the Special Olympic Bandits basketball team. MOXIE AND PJ
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
Thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time.
Our sincere condolences. Psalms 91:11 says He will give his own angels a command concerning you to guide you in all your ways. Rely on God to see you through
The HOGANS & the McDevitt's shared a party line, a telephone connection, that seems so odd these days. Yet our families shared much more than a phone number. I can't recall how many "pigs in a blanket" and other meals I shared at the Hogan family table, my second home. As my Dad was on the road for years, Mr Hogan was the Dad out on Hutchinson street playing a variety of games with the gang. He taught me a great deal about sports and life itself. I have so many fond memories of Mr Hogan, he took me to his work to see how newspapers are put together and I have had an addiction to newspapers ever since. The internet will not do. But when I think of the internet I think how much Mr Hogan loved the internet in its infancy and each day I could find something from interest from Clark. Fare winds and following seas to a great man, who will be missed, but remembered.
Rosemary, Sharon, Dennis, Ellen, Patty,
My heart breaks as your mourn the passing of this wonderful human being. Jack was one of the happiest people I ever met in my entire life. I have so many memories of him locked inside my heart and I am honored to have been part of his life. Since childhood, he has been a positive role model for so many. I can only pray that your memories of a wonderful man, living a wonderful life will carry you thru this loss. Our memories are so very precious. We send our love and thoughts your way as you celebrate the wonderful life of your Husband/Dad.
Love, Nancy and Joe Contrino.
Lo Ball Hogan: A legend and a hero of mine passed away on New Year's Day. When I was a kid, he was my favorite umpire because he'd give you the low strike and I lived around the ankles.... He was such an encouraging man.... famous for saying "Hustle guys, we're burning sun." "His head's in the game." and other things. When I first started coaching t-ball with my oldest son, we had a shy kid, John Hogan, on the team. He was so shy, I let his mom run the bases with him because he wouldn't stay on the field without her. If John was on second base, his mom was with him.... last game of the season, Lo Ball Hogan shows up and I realized John was his grandson.... and John made a great play at 3rd base and Lo Ball Hogan was beside himself, tears in his eyes.... and I realized this is what it's all about. Lo Ball Hogan was a great inspiration to me and was a model for how to treat kids on the baseball field. Rest in peace, Lo Ball Hogan!

I loved Mr. Hogan, he was a great man, a great neighbor who lived a long and historic life. RIP
Thanks, Jack, for all the great memories we have because of you and Ro! I'm sure theres a Hogans Alley in Heaven just waiting for you! Godspeed old friend
We are grateful to have known and loved Jack as our Coach to the Special Olympic Basketball team "The Bandits" in Summit. He loved all the athletes and taught them the game well and always emphasized good sportsmanship. As he was teaching the athletes, he would tell them "Go to your House" to protect their area in a game. We think Jack is now peaceful in "his House". We will always fondly remember Jack. Our condolences to Rosemary and family.
Jack was a great friend for a long time. He will be missed.
Your dad was a institution, contributed greatly to his community and left a great legacy of family and friends.
