Spencer Morris Hogan was born on July 6th, 1932 in Lark, Texas. His parents were Henry Hogan and Opal Chism.
Spence lived most of his life in Colorado where he relished in the outdoor life of the state. He loved the natural beauty of the mountains and found peace in their majesty and wonder. Give him a fishing rod, a mountain lake and the company of his four brothers, and Spence was in heaven.
He married Marilyn Lee Crawford and adopted her children. He was very close to Deanne Macdonald, his daughter, who was a mainstay in his life. His second wife was Joann nee Wagy, with whom he had a long and happy marriage that was punctuated by travel, laughter and good times in Grand Lake, Florida and Denver. Sadly, Joann predeceased him but they were devoted until the end.
Spence served honorably in the armed forces in the Air Force during the Korean War after completing high school at Denver’s Manual High School where he played sports and excelled in basketball. He was part of the team that took state 3 years in a row, a feat which he bragged about proudly.
An adventurer to the end, for his 90th birthday he went zip-lining for the first time with his family. Spence loved the local sports teams and wasn’t adverse laying down a bet or two on his beloved Broncos. He is survived by Deanne and his brothers Jerry Hogan and Paul Hogan. According to his wishes no memorial will be held but donations to Wounded Warrior, his favorite charity, would be welcomed. His ashes will be scattered in his beloved mountains according to his wishes.
