Eric Duncan Hogan 1917 ~ 2007 CENTERVILLE - Our dear husband, dad, and granddad left peacefully early Thursday morning, March 1, 2007 while in his home surrounded by his family. Eric Duncan Hogan was 89 years old. Eric had great love for his family and friends and was loved by all who knew him. He was a charming, witty, caring man who left the world a better place for his having lived here. Born July 29, 1917 in Abraham, Utah he was the youngest of eight children born to Donald and Margaret Ann Duncan Hogan. Eric married Joy Randall May 3, 1941. They were later sealed in the Salt Lake LDS Temple while he was on leave from the Air Force during World War II. He and his sweetheart have been mar-ried 65 years and have two children, nine grandchildren, and 19 great-grandchildren. Eric and his good friend, Derrell Tingey, owned a successful construction company, Hogan and Tingey Construction, in Centerville Utah. More than 40 years their efforts are still evident in the numerous homes, schools, and commercial projects throughout Utah. The highlight of his career was to participate in the construction of the Provo, LDS Temple. Eric became the president of Associated General Contractors, where through his talents and experience, improved the construction profession in the state. Eric loved traveling, golfing, woodworking, and delighting his grandchildren and great-grandchildren with his harmonica playing. He and Joy loved to spend time at their home in St. George enjoying the red cliff mountain in their backyard. Eric used his talents and unconditional love to bless the lives of others. Many people have mentioned anony-mous acts of service by him and Joy throughout their lives. He served as a bishop and almost every calling in the LDS Church. He loved the youth and related to them well because he was always young in heart. He served as stake patriarch more than 20 years and blessed the lives of thousands. In his later years, he spent many hours in his woodshop making toys for the Church Humanitarian Center. Eric was also devoted to his grandson, Brad, who has special needs. They were best friends and loved watching Jazz games, BYU football, playing pool, and going out for Blizzards. Eric was a great blessing in Brad's life that can never be replaced. We will miss his quick wit, unique use of vocabulary, and knowledge of songs and stories to entertain. Eric had an unwavering testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. His family has great comfort in knowing that he will be embraced by our Savior and by his family members who have preceded him. His mother; father; sisters, Irene and Olive; brothers, Donald, Rulon, Clyde, Leland; and granddaughter, Tara, surely will be waiting with open arms for him. Eric is survived by his wife, Joy Hogan; children, Mike and Jane Hogan, Pam and Alex Carr; sister, Ruth Parry; as well as grandchildren and great-grandchildren who love him very much.
