HOGG, Henry Bolam “Harry”

March 3, 1937 – December 6, 2011

It’s with great sadness that we announce the passing of Henry “Harry” Hogg, devoted Father, Husband, and Grandfather.

Harry was born March 3, 1937 in Berwick-upon-Tweed, Scotland and passed away peacefully in Calgary on Tuesday, December 6, 2011. A traveler at heart, Harry lived in England and in many African countries spanning twenty years before moving to Canada in 1980. Professionally, Harry is well known for his forty year career in the insurance industry in which he held roles as a broker, underwriter and most recently, retiring as the City of Calgary Risk Manager, a position he held for almost twenty years. A kind and gentle person, Harry was devoted to his family and made many personal sacrifices over the years to ensure that his children had the best life possible.

Harry is survived by his two sons, Craig Hogg and Neil Hogg (Christy Mugleston) as well as two grand daughters Kaitlyn Hogg and Sarah Hogg, all of Calgary.

He was predeceased by his loving wife Marlene Hogg in 2003.

Harry was an inspiration on how to live life and he will be forever missed.

A Celebration of Harry’s Life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive S.W. Calgary, AB) on Thursday, December 15, 2011 at 2:30 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Henry 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

  1. I worked with Harry for a number of years at the City of Calgary. He was an incredibly smart man with volumes of information in his head. He was a great mentor to me when I wanted to venture into Risk Management. He always had a smile and time to pass along his knowledge. He leaves behind a legacy at The City of Calgary in his crafted Risk Management program. He will be remembered by all those fortunate enough to know him.
