October 14, 1926 ~ December 27, 2017 (age 91)
Robert Milton Hogan, Jr. died peacefully at home in New Orleans at the age of 91. He is survived by his wife of 68 years Nellie Marino Hogan, sons Robert M. Hogan, III (Deborah) and Edward Daigle; brothers Harry Hogan and Michael Hogan (Shirley); eight grandchildren: Robert Scott Hogan (Stephanie), M’liss Hogan Meaux (Kristopher); Leigh M. Hogan; Ross M.

He is preceded in death by his parents Robert Milton Hogan, Sr. and Augusta Kimmel Hogan both of New Orleans; (sister) Rosemary Kerth; (brother) John Allen Hogan; (son) Dennis J. Hogan. Bob was born on October 14, 1926 in New Orleans, LA. He graduated from Redemptorist High School in 1944. Bob went on to enlist and serve in the US Navy during WWII, and was stationed in the Philippines. Upon his return to New Orleans from the service, he married Nellie Marino in 1949. They settled in Lakeview where they have continued to live through today. Bob worked for The American Can Company here in New Orleans and retired from there in 1983 after 36 years. He spent his retirement with his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. You could often find him in his garden tending his roses, cutting his grass, or engaged in his many home improvement projects. He was a loving and most devoted husband to the love of his life, Nellie. Following Hurricane Katrina, he thought of nothing more than returning to 14th Street in Lakeview, and rebuilding the home that he and Nellie had known for over 55 years. They were able to rebuild and return to 14th Street in 2008.
During his retirement Bob was very active in the Harahan Horseshoe Pitchers Association where he was elected Vice President in 1990 and President in 1991. In 1993, Bob was elected President of the Louisiana State Horseshoe Pitching Association. He was also a member of the LSHPA Hall of Fame. He will be sorely missed by all that knew him, and he will be remembered as having the warmest of hearts, the gentlest soul, and for his unwavering love for his dear Nellie.
