Hendrick "Hank" DeVogel Obituary
Hendrick 'Hank' DeVogel
Formerly of Littleton, MA; 50

RINDGE, NH -- Hendrick "Hank" DeVogel, 50, of Rindge, NH, formerly of Littleton, passed away on Thursday, November 21, 2013, at the Golden Living Center in Fitchburg, MA surrounded his friends, after a long battle with kidney failure.

Born in Needham, MA, July 25, 1963 to the late Hendrick and Eleanor (Slavin) DeVogel, Hank grew up in Littleton and attended the Littleton Schools and Nashoba Tech where he took up plumbing.

Hank worked for many years in the plumbing trade before finding his calling as a welder, working for J.P. Routhier & Son, and most recently with Dillion Boiler of Fitchburg.

Hank was an avid motorcyclist who would ride his Harley if at all possible. He also loved music and would finish his days by playing his guitars. Most of all, he enjoyed spending time with his large group of close friends.

Besides his parents, Hank was predeceased by his stepmother, Dorothy (Born) DeVogel. Hank is survived by his brother, James "Jim" DeVogel and his wife, Michelle of Littleton. He was the very proud uncle of Jim and Michelle's son, Jamie and would show off James's pictures whenever he could. He is also survived by his very close and special friends Kevin "Red" Jordon and his wife, Ellen of Winchendon, and Richard Dustin of Monmouth, Maine; step brother, Michael McCormic; step sisters, Marcie Smith, Becky Connolly, Catherine McCormic, and Jennifer Dwyer. He also leaves a large group of close friends who will miss him.

The Family and friends would also like to thank the staff of the Golden Living Center of Fitchburg making his final days so comfortable.

Hank now joins his friends Johnny, Lenny and others who have left this world too early on that awesome motorcycle ride in heaven.
