Daniel Hogan Jr. Obituary

In Memoriam of Daniel F. Hogan Jr.                                                                                                                  


Surrounded by his family, Daniel F. Hogan Jr. (Dan) passed away peacefully at his home on December 5, 2023.

Dan was born on July 6, 1942, in Woonsocket, Rhode Island to Gertrude (Trant) and Daniel F. Hogan Sr. Despite his Rhode Island roots, Dan was a New York Yankees and Giants fan, and took pleasure in reminding everyone. He had a sharp wit and tremendous sense of humor and loved ribbing those around him.

A resident of Woonsocket for his entire life, Dan worked at The Woonsocket Call for a number of years before becoming a postal worker in Providence. Before his illness, he enjoyed playing golf and was an avid reader. A veteran of the Air Force, Dan was a die-hard Democrat and loved discussing politics. He was particularly proud to bear witness to the presidency of Barack Obama; a subject on which he never tired. Dan enjoyed Motown & Soul music, watching sports and documentaries, and playing cards. Above all else, his pride and joy was his family, to whom he was supremely dedicated.

He is survived by his wife Francoise (Morelle) Hogan; his four children, Jessica Hogan of Woonsocket, Jason Hogan and his wife Patricia of Uxbridge, Rebecca Hogan of Block Island, and Matthew Hogan of Cranston; his sister, Katherine Mainella of Warwick; his grandchildren Destri, Bria, Micaiah, Jadyn, Jacob, Ava, and great-granddaughter Elliani. He was also brother of the late William Hogan. 

In the days leading to his death, Dan was fortunate enough to be surrounded by the people who mattered most to him. His last moments were filled with love, light, laughter, and family. He will be missed tremendously. 

In honoring Daniel’s wishes, his funeral services are being handled by S. DiPardo Memorial Chapel Funeral Home at 1583 Diamond Hill Road in Woonsocket and will be private.
