Norman Hogan

May 12, 1946 - February 25, 2017

Norman Stanley Hogan was born to William Stanley and Bertha Alice Hogan on May 12, 1946. He was raised with many brothers and sisters. There was always music and a lot of love in that family. He was a talented musician and often played alongside his father-in-law and the Redding Family at local venues.

Norman was a kid at heart. He always made time to play baseball at reunions with his nephews and nieces. He was funny, generous, thoughtful and affectionately nicknamed Uncle Nor Nor. He loved his grandkids to pieces.

Norman is survived by his wife and soul mate for 38 years, Donna; his two sons, Vincent Edward Redding of Missouri and Aaron Stanley Hogan Widner of California. Norman is also survived by eight beautiful grandchildren; one great-grandchild. He is survived by his sister Barbara ( James) Simmons; father-in-law Arvin Redding; brothers-in-law Dunnie Redding, Eddie Redding, Larry (Phyllis) Redding, Terry (Kathleen) Redding, Ronnie ( Cindy) Redding, Teddy (Holly) Redding and Clarence (Linda) Davis. He was also survived by sister-in-laws; Gaylene (Greg) Marquez, Lora (Alan) Hawksley, Dora (Steve) Tagge, Lilia Hogan, Dorothy Hogan and Ellen Virgin. Norman is survived by numerous cousins, nieces and nephews. All whom loved him beyond measure.

Norman loved the Lord. He was brave and ready to go onto the next journey. He was happy that he would reconnect with his family again. He was brought together in heaven with his daddy and momma William and Bertha. His mother-in-law Vonna Jean also preceded him. He joined in heaven his brothers Johnny, Lee, Rodney, Donald, Carl (Lola), by sister Geraldine Davis and sister-in-law Ruby, who preceded him. He received his heavenly reward without fear on Saturday, Feb. 25 surrounded by those closest to him.

Though Norman will be missed, the Hogan family must be filling the heavens with music. A potluck Celebration of Life will be held Sunday, March 5 at 1 p.m. at Mariposa County Fairgrounds.
