George A. Hogan
October 8, 2011

George A. Hogan, surrounded by his wife Linda, daughter Talina Fields and son Charles Hogan, passed gently into the arms of our Lord in his Missouri City home in the early morning hours of Saturday, October 8, 2011. George was born in Rockmart, Georgia on November 26, 1940 to Ruth and C.V. Hogan. The family moved to Longview, Texas when George was in Junior in high school. Being a "Big" boy he was welcomed with open arms and immediately recruited for the Longview Lobos. George loved the game of football and received eight scholarships to play college ball. He chose Texas A & M where he played for three years and was recruited by the Oakland Raiders in 1963 where he played for 2 years. After an injury to his knee, he came back to the Dallas area to work and was drafted into the US Army where he served in Vietnam. After receiving The Bronze Star Medal he was honorably discharged and he returned to the Dallas area to work. During this time he met and married Linda and continued to attend UT Arlington until receiving his BBA in 1971. The family moved to Houston in 1972 so that he could join the family business, Hogan Fluid Power. After his brother Jim Hogan and sister Dottye Sartain preceded him in death, Hogan Fluid Power was sold and he started Control Center Systems. He continued to work until he could no longer take care of his customers. He thrived at solving problems and designing systems.

Heritage Baptist Church became a huge part of his life and he loved the Lord. One of his greatest satisfactions was teaching and working with the youth in AWANA.
He leaves his wife, Linda, daughter Talina Fields, son-in-law John and son Charles Hogan. Three grandchildren, Jeff Fields, Austin Fields and Sydney Hogan and his mother Ruth Symms. His has been proceeded in death by his father C.V. Hogan, brothers, Jim Hogan, Bobby Hogan and sister Dottye Sartain.

His principal legacies will be the love he showed and taught his family, friends and his church. We are all deeply saddened by his departure but know that he is with his Lord.
Memorial Service will be held at Heritage Baptist Church, 2223 FM 1092/Murphy Rd, Missouri City on Saturday, October 15, 2011 at 11:00am. The family request that in lieu of flowers, donations in George's memory be made to MD Anderson Cancer Center, New Century Hospice or Heritage Baptist Church.
