FRANK E. HOGAN
RESPECTED CITIZEN DIES AT HOME TUESDAY
RITES FOR FRANK HOGAN TO BE HELD FRIDAY AT ST. JOSEPH'S
Frank E. Hogan, aged 68, one of Oxford's highly respected citizens, died suddenly at his home on Albany street, Tuesday morning, September 21. He passed away during sleep. Mr. Hogan had been in ill health for some time but had been able to pursue his work.
He felt deeply the loss of his daughter, Dorothy Hogan Back, who passed away suddenly June 14, at her home in Cromwell, Connecticut. This bereavement had contributed to his failing health.
Mr. Hogan was born June 7, 1875, in the town of Preston the son of Edward and Bridget Welch Hogan. His early life was spent there.
He was united in marriage to Miss Kittie Ryan, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Eugene B. Ryan March 7, 1905, in Oxford. They have since resided on Albany street.
Mr. Hogan was a contractor and builder, a member of St. Joseph's church, and was prominent in civic life of the village. He served on the school board from 1921 to 1939. At the time of the building of the Centralized School in 1930, Mr. Hogan was on the building and grounds committee, and contributed much to the successful completion of our Oxford Academy and Central School. His name appears on the bronze plate in that institution. He was mayor of the village from March 1929 to March 1931. Several years previous to being mayor, he served as trustee on the village board.
Surviving are his wife, one daughter, Miss Leona Hogan, a teacher in Saugerties; a son, Dr. Edward E. Hogan, Lieutenant Commander in the Medical Corps, U. S. Navy, stationed in Washington; three grandchildren, Barbara and Rebecca Le Back, of Cromwell, Connecticut and Pamela Hogan, of Washington, D. C.; two sisters, Mrs. Alfred Quinn of Norwich and Miss Elizabeth Hogan of Oxford; and one brother, Fred Hogan, also of Oxford.
Through his business and civic life, Mr. Hogan had won the respect of all who came to know him. The many friends of the family join in expressing their warmest sympathy.
The funeral will be held from St. Joseph's church, Friday morning at 10 o'clock, Rev. Thomas Leonard officiating. Burial will be made in Riverview cemetery.
Bearers will be Julian Ryan, Samuel Ryan, Herbert F. Ryan and Richard Quinn of Norwich.
