HOGG – William (Bill )

September 16, 1929 – October 10, 2010

William (Bill) Hogg of Calgary passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family, on Sunday, October 10, 2010 at the age of 81 years.  Bill was born in Edmonton where he lived for 67 years until he and Joanne moved to Calgary in 1996.  He worked for 34 years for the Alberta Government in the Motor Vehicles Division until his retirement in 1986.  Bill loved music and could often be found whistling or singing throughout the day.  He enjoyed photography, camping, skiing, golfing, reading, and traveling.  As a devoted member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, he was very active in scouting, served in several bishoprics and as a Bishop of the Young Single Adult ward.  He and Joanne also served as missionaries at the Calgary Employment Center.  He was a loving husband, devoted father and grandfather, a dear friend to those who knew him.  Our lives have been forever enriched by his example of hard work, faith in his Heavenly Father, his wisdom and unconditional love he gave to everyone whose life he touched.

Bill is survived by his loving wife of 51 years, Joanne (Workman); his four daughters, Loreli (Don) Armstrong, Deanna (Mike) Clark, Lynette (Armand) Schipper, Aleecia (Francisco) Irigoyen; eight grandchildren, Sierra, Danielle, Taylor, Heatherlyn, Zoey, Zane, Austin, and Emily and his sister, Margaret Kuefler.  Many in-laws, nieces and nephews complete our family circle.

    Joanne, Bill and I send our heartfelt condolences to you and your family.
    Our memories of Bill are of a terrific person who was always doing something for others.
    I guess we overlapped at Images Camera Club for twenty years during which time he was looking after the social events with bountiful turkeys, barbeques and regular refreshments at each meeting.
    He had many outings and teaching events and when moved to Calgary, was sorely missed.
    Our thougths are with you at this time and we send our love. Mufty and Bill Mathewson

    Dear family of Brother Hogg

    We were saddened to hear that Brother Hogg passed away. We would like to express our condolences for the loss of your husband, father and grandfather. I didn’t tell but after the passing away of my father in 2006, I (Janina) was enjoying the discussions with him and was imagining that I was discussing with my father, telling him jokingly, that he can stand one more daughter. He told me that I didn’t scare him.

    In closing we would like to share with the words of a favorite hymn:

    “Each life that touches ours for good
    Reflects thine great mercy, Lord;
    Thou sendest blessings from above
    Throu words and deeds of those who love

    For worthy friends whose life proclaim
    Devotion to the Savior’s name,
    Who bless our days with peace and love
    We praise thy goodness, Lord, above.”

    We are in our prayers,
    Badara Family and Sister Nita
