Reverend Gary L. Hogue – October 31, 2017

Reverend Gary L. Hogue, 65, of Strasburg, went to be with God Tuesday, October 31, 2017 in Union Hospital at Dover following a 27 month battle with cancer and a 30 year battle with MS.

A son of the late Paul and Ruby (Reichman) Hogue, Gary was born October 15, 1952 in Mercy Hospital at Canton, Ohio.

Gary served his country for four years as a member of the US Air Force and spent 18 years as a volunteer fire fighter. He was a Master Mason for seven years and a member of the Carpenters Local 619.

He is also survived by his dogs, Sierra, Athala, Ayla, Arianna and Trixie.

Gary has been preceded in death by both of his parents; his sister, Pam Patrick and father-in-law James Gatten.

Visitation will be held on Friday, November 3, 2017 from 12 noon to 1 PM in the Linn-Hert-Geib Funeral Home & Crematory at New Philadelphia with services to follow at 1 PM in the funeral home’s chapel with Pastor Jason Humble officiating.  Burial will follow at Grandview Union Cemetery at Strasburg.
