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.

    Eddie I do remember the car accident and the three of us having lunch. I loved how he would say your name. Thank you for all the kind words and for your friendship to Ron.

    My husband had a talent for bringing special meaning to life. Ron did just that to mine.
    I will be in love with this man forever. He gave me something so special, himself.
    I know he’s with me watching over me, that’s what we both promised each other.
    We both realized the fullness and the beauty in our lives.

    Everday we counted our blessings. We were grateful to have found one another.
    I loved how he embraced me in his arms.His blue eyes were incredible and the way that he looked at me. His smile was priceless.

    No one can ever fill his shoes, he was very unique. He could always tell when something was bothering me. He listened, he never passed judgement, he was someone who I could depend on, he knew how to comfort me and he protected me. He lifted me up.

    It hurts so much that he’s not here, but I am forever grateful for all the love he poured into my heart. He was a wise man and I am so lucky that I had almost nine years with him. We met on March 14, 2005 and married on September 15th 2007.

    I loss my husband and my best friend.

    I love you Ron Edward Hogue and thank you for the best 9 years of my life.
