OSSIPEE - Roland "Roley" Bell Hogan Jr. died peacefully Jan. 9, 2014, at the age of 92. He was born in Lynn, Mass., the son of Ruth E. and Roland B. Hogan Sr. He spent the summers of his youth at a family cabin in Young's Cove, Nova Scotia, Canada, in the company of family, beloved cousins and friends.

He graduated from Lynn English High School in 1938 and attended New Hampton School and Bucknell University. He was proud to have served in the U.S. Navy during World War II as a first class petty officer. He graduated from New England School of Art in 1948.

He was employed by AT&T Bell Laboratories as a drafting and design supervisor until his retirement in 1976. In 1980 he moved from Kingston to his home on Ossipee Lake where he and his family had been summering since 1960.

He was a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Telephone Pioneers, the Ashler Club, the First Congregational Church of Ossipee and the Ossipee Valley Lodge 74, F&AM. Last December he was presented with a certificate celebrating his 60-year membership with the Freemasons. Roley enjoyed golf, played with a Bell Lab league and then as a member of the Indian Mound Golf Club. He loved to bowl with his great bowling friends, first at Kezer Falls and then at the lanes in Fryeburg, Maine. He volunteered for Ossipee Concerned Citizens and delivered meals-on-wheels for 20 years. Most of all he was a wonderful husband, dad, "Grampy" and uncle, and loved his family so very much.

He was predeceased by his first wife of 42 years, Barbara (Jillson) Hogan. He is survived by his wife, Brenda (Thompson) Hogan, and son Glenn Hogan, both at Mt. View Community in Ossipee; a daughter, Peggy, and her husband, Tom Reinfuss; granddaughter Susan and her husband, Bill Dirubbo; four stepchildren, Pamela Currier, Sally Anne Blanchette, Allison Rich and Scott Gould; eight grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
