Ronald E. Hogue

October 02, 1940 - February 24, 2014


Ronald Edward Hogue, 73, passed away suddenly in the city of Palm Springs, CA where he lived.

Ron is survived by his wife Sandra Lee Hogue; stepson Timothy J. Carter; his brothers Arlie and Roger Hogue of Grants Pass, Oregon and Benny Munoz of Huntington Beach, CA; and his sister Sharon Heckman of Palm Springs, CA.

Ron was born in Los Angeles, CA to Ambroe and Bertha Hogue on October 2, 1940. He was preceded in death by his parents.

Ron graduated in 1969 from Inglewood High School. He continued his education at Long Beach State where he studied economics and obtained his AA degree. Ron obtained his pilot’s license in 1971. He took the flying lessons at Santa Monica Airport.

Ron started his food brokerage career on September 25, 1972 with Massie & Associates. Ron rose from territory manager to district manager and then retail sales manager.

Ron left Brown-Massie in 1976 to join a firm that offered him more money and a position as manager of their Grocery Division, that company being Butler-Clark. Butler-Clark was sold in 1981.

Ron then joined Crown/Advantage (Advantage Sales & Marketing) where he worked for over 25 years. He was a business development manager (food broker). Ron loved what he did and was very well known and much respected in the supermarket industry.

Ron will be so much more than missed by so many people, close friends, and his family.

Ron enjoyed being with his wife so much, that they did so much together – cooking, candlelight dinners every night listening to their favorite music, walking, hiking, gardening home improvement projects. They loved entertaining friends and family. Ron enjoyed playing golf and his Starbuck’s coffee every morning.

Donations can be made to The American Heart Association, in his honor.

    I just want to say thank you to all of our family near and far. I want to say thank you to all of Ron’s close friends and everyone who was touched by this man in some way or another. It touches my heart that Ron was liked and loved by so many.
    I am so proud of my husband Ron, and for so many reasons. I fell in love with him because of the man he was and still is.

    I have very difficult times ahead of me, Ron said I was a strong woman when we met.
    He continued to tell me this through out our marriage. He made me even stronger just being with him.

    I really don’t want to live in this world without him, but I know he would want me to go on.
    Sometimes I feel like I can’t take another breath, than I think of what he would say to me.
    Ron touched my heart deeply and always told me that everything is going to be ok.
    Going to be a long healing process,but this is something I will never get over.

    So grateful for Ron’s love and the memories. I will cherish that forever.

    Thank you to everyone for their help,support,love and prayers.

    Cherish every moment,cherish each other and be grateful for family and friends.

    Love Sandy
