HOGG – John Edward “Jack”

May 18, 1931 – January 4, 2011

With deep sadness we announce the passing of John “Jack” Edward Hogg of Calgary on Tuesday, January 4, 2011 at the age of 79 years. Jack was the beloved husband of Jean, to whom he was married for 57 years.

Jack was an only child, born on May 18, 1931 to parents Kenneth and Elma in Toronto. He earned his Ph.D. in Physics at the University of Toronto, and subsequently started his long career as a geophysicist with Imperial Oil in 1956. He lived most of his life in Calgary and was also posted in Edmonton, Dawson Creek and Houston. At his work, he was known as an excellent researcher and teacher of mathematical methods for seismic data processing. Jack loved nature – especially wildflower photography and bird watching. He was an avid outdoorsman, and enjoyed canoeing, hiking and cross-country skiing. After his retirement from Imperial Oil in 1987, he taught geophysics for 8 years part-time at the University of Alberta. He was an active member of the Esso Annuitant hiking and skiing clubs for many years.

Jack was dedicated to his family and friends, and will be fondly remembered for his kindness and his wry sense of humour. He passed his final month of rapidly declining health with dignity and grace.

He leaves behind his four children; Ted (Christine) Hogg, Susan (Barry) Hertz, Carol (Sandy) Denton, and David (Heidi) Hogg, along with his nine loving grandchildren.

A Celebration of Jack’s life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive S.W.) on Monday, January 10, 2011 at 2:30 p.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

If friends so desire, memorial donations may be made directly to the Foothills Country Hospice Society, PO Box 274, Okotoks, AB T1S 1A5 (403 995 4673) www.countryhospice.org

In living memory of Jack Hogg, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Telephone: (403)243-8200

    I knew Jack at Imperial and ‘on the trail’. His friendship and leadership in both places was in a calm air of authority, presented with a subtle humor, which commanded attention and respect.

    Hiking, which we both enjoyed, is where I knew more of Jack. He always acknowledged one with a nod and a smile. After the hike there would be an exchange of comments and mutual achievements.

    Missed, yes! But respectfully remembered by all those fortunate enough to have known him.
