In loving memory ~
Roger Victor Hogg passed away peacefully on November 28, 2022 at the Nakusp Arrow Lakes Hospital.
He was born in Princeton in 1948 and moved to the New Denver area in 1967. When arriving in New Denver, he began working at Kamcotia/Dickenson mine in Sandon as a Heavy-duty mechanic. On Dec 31, 1970, he married his wife, Dolores Hogg (Mengler) and together they had two daughters.
While residing in New Denver, and later Silverton, he volunteered with the Silverton Fire Department and local Kinsmen club. in 1976 he began working for the Department of Highways, where he eventually retired.
He was an avid fisherman, hunter, mushroom & huckleberry picker, loved nature and his daily walks. This is inspired him and Dolores to move to Hills and begin hobby farming, raising chickens, turkeys and cows. He also spent time on his ham radio and volunteered with the Nakusp Search & Rescue.
After his debilitating accident in 2010, he continued to enjoy family gatherings around the campfire, visiting with everyone who popped by, dog-sitting for family and friends, maintaining his hobby farm, tinkering in the shop and going down to the head of the lake to observe nature and wildlife. He also made it a priority to share his knowledge and skills with his grandchildren, ensuring they were brought up with strong morals and values.
Roger leaves behind his wife Dolores Hogg (Mengler), his children Laura Lee Hogg (Brendan Bowman), Anna Marie Hogg (Karrie Whitehead), beloved grandchildren, Garrett Bowman (Melissa), Kodi Bowman and Julia Whitehead, and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents Katherine and William Hogg, and sister Gwen Bartlett. He is survived by his brother Jim Hogg and sister Jacquie Grummett.
Thank you to everyone in Roger’s life who assisted him and his family, and particularly the caregivers, the Slocan Lake Health Center, the Arrow Lakes Hospital and the community members who reached out to support.
Morning light, morning bright
I spent the night, with dreams that make you weep
Morning time, wash away the sadness, from these eyes of mine
For I recall the words an old man signed
‘For my children’
