RL Hogan, age 90 a resident of Paris, Arkansas passed away Friday, March 9, 2018, at his home.

RL was born on February 18, 1928, in Checotah, Oklahoma to the late Robert Lee and Minnie Bell (Lewis) Hogan. After graduating from Prairie Grove High School in 1946, RL joined the United States Army Air Corp serving our country many tours overseas, including both the Korean and Vietnam War. During his service, RL met and married the love of his life, the late Ann Campbell. RL retired from the military, after more than 30 years of service, as a Chief Master Sargent. He was a flight engineer for C-130 airplanes and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross. After retiring from the military RL moved to Spring Hill with his wife and worked at The Spring Hill Waste Water Treatment Plant. The sharp minded man during that time tended to his garden with help from his children but only by specific instruction. He loved spending time tinkering with mechanics beyond what most are capable of, watching the Dallas Cowboys play football, and eating ice cream “the RL way”.
