The Hogan family is saddened to announce the passing of Doug Hogan Sr. ~
“On the first day of hunting season”
A Celebration of Life will be held August 21st, 2021 at the Whitehorse Rifle and Pistol Gun Club
Doug was born in Perth, Ontario but grew up in Alberta. Doug was working for CNT working powerline on his first trip to the Yukon. When Doug came back to the Yukon in 1955 he started working with Yukon Electric where he made his home in Watson Lake. Upon his retirement from Yukon Electric in 1978 he moved his family to Whitehorse and ventured his life into a new area.
Doug sold the Shannon/Whitehorse Center motor Inn in 1992, enabling him to pursue his passion of hunting fishing and trapshooting. He dedicated many hours to the Canadian Rangers, Yukon Fish and Game Association and the trap shooting club.
We all appreciated the time he spent teaching and mentoring us and anyone willing to learn. He always had time for a cup of coffee and a visit if you needed advice and was always happy to share his adventures to remote parts of the Yukon.
Doug leaves behind his Loving wife Donna Hogan; Children Doug (Robin), Lesley, Pat (Ashly),and Joella; Grandchildren Blair (Jessie), Justin, Nick (Morgan), Dakota, Hunter, and Shania; Great grandchild Winter Travis.
Doug also leaves his sisters Norma Hogan, Deb Harrop, brothers Terry Hogan (Jocelyn), Kim Spencer, Sister in-laws Sally Hogan, and Lois Craig.
Doug was predeceased by his infant son Daniel Wayne in 1986 and brothers Jack and Mike Hogan.
In Lieu of flowers we are asking that any donations can be made to Whitehorse Rifle & Pistol Club for promotion of youth trap shooters.
Mile 3.2 Grey Mountain Road, P.O Box 30078 Whitehorse Yukon, Y1A-3M2
