Eugene J. Hogan
November 15, 1928 - August 18, 2021
Eugene J. Hogan, husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, uncle and friend to many, passed away in Frisco, Texas on August 18, 2021.
Most often called "Gene," he was born on November 15, 1928 in Iraan, TX to Thomas Cecil Hogan and Jewel Pearl Tyra Hogan.
He was predeceased by his parents and brothers Tom Hogan Jr, Ted Hogan, Sr., and Russell Edmond Hogan.
After spending most of his childhood in Crane, TX, Gene graduated from Texas A&M University, Class of '50, with a degree in Accounting. He was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the US Air Force and was stationed at Carswell Air force Base in Fort Worth. In February 1952, he was assigned to audit base supplies across Korea, Japan, Guam, and other eastern bases. He returned stateside in June 1953 where he remained in the Air Force reserves until discharged as a Captain in 1967.
Gene began his public accounting career in Midland, TX in June 1954. By 1961, he moved into corporate accounting for numerous oil and gas companies. Texas Land and Mortgage Co., Spectrum Seven Energy, and Jack Hightower Interests were his most fulfilling positions. He retired in 1998. Eugene and Mary Lou Hanks Quattrini were married by L.L. Morris on December 10, 1960, at the First Baptist Church of Midland. On that snowy, freezing morning, he added not only a wife, but 2 more children to the big, extended Hogan clan!
He is survived by wife, Mary Lou Hogan of Frisco TX, son Mike Quattrini (Susan) of Grapeland, TX, and daughters Denni Kay Quattrini Scates (John) of Frisco, TX and Diane Hogan (Sharlette) of Austin TX, six grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
Gene will always be remembered as a good provider who supported his family in every way he knew to do. From frequent interaction with the extended family, to Colorado vacations in July every year, we were left with many stories to tell through the generations. He was quickly identified by everyone who met him as a Texas Aggie and a man who truly loved his country! His years of education and service preparation at TAMU and his years in the Air Force and Reserves were the part of his life that molded him and formed his unwavering work ethic, which he has passed down through his children.
Gene was a member of First Baptist Church of Midland for 57 years, moving to FBC of Carrollton only after moving to the Metroplex to be closer to family in 2017. After his retirement in 1998, Gene volunteered at the Commemorative Air Force Museum, was active in the Midland Downtown Lions Club, and was a member of both the Permian Basin Petroleum Museum and Permian Basin Petroleum Accountants organizations.
Memorial donations may be made to any of these organizations.
A family gathering to share love and stories will be arranged later this fall and internment will be in the Perry Cemetery of Carrollton.
