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.

  1. My dear friend Ron is no longer with us, but has a special place in heaven. He saw no evil, never said an unkind word about anyone, nor did anyone about him. He was very giving of his time and resources to family and friends. The food industry had lost one of it’s finest. The world has lost a kind, honest, gentle, good man. May he live forever in our memories. We love you Ron and Sandy.

    I had the fortunate pleasure of working with Ron at Crown/BBK and Advantage for the past 23 years. Although over the past 13 years we were in different offices, I always looked forward to seeing Ron at our annual golf tournament, or at a client meeting, as he never failed to bring a smile to my face. My heart aches for both your family and the ASM family as we have truly lost a man of increadible integrity and someone who made a great impression on all of us.

    My God’s comfort be with you at this time.
