Doug Hogan, 71, Taylor County, KY (1952-2023)

Arthur Douglas Hogan of Campbellsville, son of the late Joe Coakley Hogan and Mozelle McDonald Hogan, was born October 24, 1952, in Taylor County Kentucky. He died Saturday, November 18, 2023, in Campbellsville at age 71.

Doug had a big heart that showed as he would often help others in need or tend to the many animals he would take in over the years. As the youngest sibling, he carried many fond memories of his childhood and the community in which he grew up. Mannsville was always home for Doug, and his family was always in his heart and mind.

He professed faith in Christ and was of the Methodist faith.

He was a graduate of Kentucky Wesleyan College and he was a retired employee of Exxon Mobil. Doug's career allowed him to experience so many adventures for a little fellow who grew up in the country. He was able to see firsthand the beauty, of not only the land on which he lived, but the waters that surrounded it. Living and working on a ship hundreds of miles out in the sea developed Doug into much of the person he became. He had a passion for that ship and for his job.

He lived a life of simple means. To him, there was no need for bigger or better. All he needed was a landline or a visit to the back door, and he could talk for hours. It didn't matter if you were a relative, an old acquaintance, a new friend, or a stranger he just met, he wouldn't hesitate to share a story or two.

Doug is survived by a host of family and friends who will miss him dearly.

He was also preceded in death by one brother and three sisters: Jim Hogan, Joyce Dearen, Anna Mae Phillips and Tilda Lamb.

FUNERAL SERVICE: 2pmET Wednesday, November 22, 2023 at Parrott & Ramsey Funeral Home in Campbellsville by Bro. Jordan Abell and Mark Carney with burial in the Mt. Zion Cemetery.
