Dan L. Hogue, a lifelong resident of Anderson, died unexpectedly and suddenly on February 15, 2016 while hiking Mount Fagan in Vail, Arizona with his son-in-law Cecil.

He was born on October 14, 1949 and was the son of D. Jeanne Ginder Hogue and his adoptive father Warner D. Hogue.

He graduated from Anderson High School in 1968 and from General Motors Institute in Flint, Michigan in 1973 with an industrial engineering degree. He worked for Delco Remy in Anderson, EDS, and Hewlett Packard, retiring in 2013 as a senior network architect. In recent years he had designed a secured network for the Department of Homeland Security.

Dan is survived by his wife of 47 years, Mary Frances Paschal Hogue, his daughters Jessica Hogue of Chicago, Illinois and Emily Hogue of Tucson, Arizona and his granddaughters Magdalene and Mary Frances Hogue-Mac Pherson. He is also survived by his son-in-law Cecil R. Mac Pherson and his inherited grandsons Gabriel, Ethan, and Koby Mac Pherson, all of Tucson.

He is survived by one brother, Jerris W. Hogue of Taos, NM, nephews Gary, Keith and Shawn Hogue and niece Natalia Hogue Wellman, of California; by his aunts Wanda Ginder Yattaw of Middletown; Rosemary Ginder Harp, Sharon Ginder Foley and her son Eric Foley, his uncle Ronald and aunt Rachel Ginder all of Anderson; uncle Riggle Hogue and aunt Verla Hogue Horton of Missouri; sister-in-law Sharon Hogue of Anderson, and by many Ginder & Hogue cousins.

His death is mourned by his entire Paschal family, father-in-law Francis E. Paschal of Anderson, brothers-in-law and their spouses Timothy and Diane Paschal, Mark Paschal and Lisa Spees all of Indianapolis, John Kyle and Eleanor Paschal of Lexington, Kentucky and sister-in-law Margie Paschal of Anderson. Also surviving are his 17 Paschal nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his infant son Nathaniel in 1973, his parents, two brothers Rual and Keith Hogue, maternal grandparents George and Mildred Ginder, mother-in-law Delores McVey Paschal and brother-in-law Jesse K. Paschal.

Dan was an avid outdoorsman. He had hiked the Rockies in the American Southwest, the Andes in South America, and parts of the Inca Trail with his daughter Emily, an anthropologist, in 2005, and climbed the 14,000 foot peaks of Colorado annually with friends over the past several years. He had also kayaked the entire length of the White River in several stints over the past two years.

He loved his farm, his animals, and tending to his land. He was an accomplished woodworker and had worked on many projects with his daughter Jessica, an architect and artist.

Dan was a generous and loving husband, father and grandfather. He was a good friend to many, and he will be greatly missed by all of those who loved him.

A memorial service will be held at a later date. Donations may be made in his name to the National Park Foundation.
