October 24, 1949 ~ August 2, 2022
Ellis Gary “Doc” Hogan, 72, was called home to our Lord on Tuesday, August 2, 2022.
Born October 24, 1949, in Louisville, Kentucky to Ellis and Myrtle Hogan. Doc, was a unique and caring individual who touched the lives of all who knew him. He raised seven loving children, including two stepchildren (Heather and Westley). However, if you were to ask him, he may have said all the babies he delivered and treated were considered family.
He was a graduate of Caverna High School. Doc went to Harding University for his undergraduate studies and the University of Louisville for medical school. He loved being a physician and truly had a passion for medicine. His last wish was to donate his body to science and help with future medical research.
He was a member of the Cave City Church of Christ and loved singing. When he moved to be with his daughters in Ohio, he became a member of Bridgeway Church. He loved visiting the local nursing home and singing. The Pastor at Bridgeway would constantly try to stump everyone with lesser-known hymns and there was never a time that he could get one over on Doc. He knew them all and always had fun with that. Doc was a true Bible Scholar-always studying!
When he wasn’t reading his bible, you would find him getting amped up for Kentucky Wildcats basketball games. He had his tv on and pre-game radio playing. If there was a pre-game to the pre-game’s pregame, he would be listening to it all. If he wasn’t watching UK Basketball, you would find him watching cooking shows, as he loved to cook. The year of the Turducken Thanksgiving will go down in history for sure!
He was one of the smartest people on earth, yet never quite grasped how to use a tv remote. He, however, excelled at ordering every pay per view movie and sports package possible. We learned to know every DirectTV customer service rep by name because of Doc. He always had a way with bringing people together!
He was preceded in death by his daughter Sonya; parents, Ellis and Myrtle; and brother Darrell.
He is survived by his children Byron, Laura (Bryan), Kyle, Brooke (Mark), Amber, and Hannah; his grandchildren, Kelsey, Brailyn, Sawyer, Harper, Maci, Drew, Finn, and Ellie; his stepmother Bertha; his sister, Pam and his brother, Tony; as well as his niece Emily, nephew Michael, and nephew Ben.
A Celebration of Doc’s Life will be held on Saturday, September 3, 2022 at Bob Hunt Funeral Chapel, 410 North Dixie Highway, Cave City, Kentucky 42127. Doc always had an open-door policy and loved having visitors and meeting with people. So, in true Doc fashion, anyone who wishes to come, all are welcome!
***** The family will receive friends on Saturday, September 3, 2022 from 10:00 a.m. until time for services at 11:30 a.m. *****
A meal and balloon release at the Funeral Home will immediately follow the service.
In lieu of flowers, Doc would have loved the idea of helping the next generation of Doctors. Donations may be made directly at www.give.louisville.edu or can be made at the funeral home the day of his service.
Bob Hunt Funeral Chapel is honored to be assisting the family with arrangements.
