Roland was born July 22, 1913 near Glasgow, Montana to
George and Beatrice Steele Hogg, the first of four children.
His parents and a brother preceded him in death. He is
survived by his wife, Dorothy, of Caldwell; an uncle, George
Steele of Sweet; a brother, Robert, of Caldwell and a sister,
Mary Bulson, of Boise; two daughters, Judith Hogg, of
Bellevue, Washington and Meredyth McKinley, of Orem, Utah; two
sons and their wives, John and Julia Hogg, of Caldwell and
Merrill and Lisa Hogg of Maple Valley, Washington, plus two
other daughters and their husbands, Georgianne "Jody" and Jon
Werner of Vancouver, Washington and Elaine and Bill Weaver of
Woodland, Washington. There are 23 grandchildren and 2
great-grandchildren. He married Dorothy Wilson in Cheyenne,
Wyoming on August 21, 1946, and graduated from the University
of Wyoming in March, 1947. Upon graduation he was employed by
the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation from 1947 to 1970. He also
homesteaded on the Heart Mountain Irrigation Project near
Cody, Wyoming from 1949 to 1956 when BuRec sent him to Austin,
Texas, then to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. BuRec then sent him
and his family to Lashkar Gah, Afghanistan in 1964 and to
Kandahar in 1967. Upon their return to the States in 1969, he
was sent to Moses Lake, Washington and thence to Rio de
Janeiro, Brazil. He "retired" in 1970 and the family moved to
Caldwell at that time.
Roland was recognized by his acquaintances as a man who
would strive with all diligence to fulfill any assignment
given to him - truly a man of great integrity.
Service to his Church was always his first priority. He
was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-day Saints and served wherever asked. Together, he and
his wife served as missionaries in Alberta, Canada, as temple
workers in the Boise LDS Temple, and spent nearly 10 years in
the LDS name extraction program.
The family will welcome friends from 9 to 9:45 a.m. in the
Relief Society room at the LDS chapel, 12th and Everett, in
