More on Richard H. Hogg (1919-2014)

This weekend, I had the pleasure of attending Bro. Richard Henry Hogg’s home going service in San Francisco, CA. As you can see below, Phi Beta Sigma was well represented as we performed the Omega Service for Bro. Hogg. I was able to meet Bro. Hogg’s son, Bro. Granville Hogg (Front row, 4th from the right below). Western Regional Director Jeffrey Sneed made the trip up and presented the Hogg family with a proclamation, which will also hang at IHQ. Along with Bro. Hogg’s obituary, the proclamation detailed a number of great facts:

  • Bro. Hogg was initiated via Rho chapter at Southern University
  • He was not only the oldest Sigma in the San Francisco Bay Area as I noted previously, but the oldest active Sigma in the entire Western Region
  • He took his position as Western Regional Direction quite seriously and was instrumental in assisting many Sigmas as they arrived in San Francisco
  • To honor him, annually at the Founders Day Program, the Sigmas give out in Richard’s name an award to the outstanding Sigma of the Year
  • Throughout his lifetime, Richard was a member of several organizations: Lion’s Club, Morehouse Parish Society, Black Business Association, United States Veterans, and the Spiders’ Civic and Social Club while also supporting his wife’s involvement in Delta Sigma Theta
