Roland Hogg

    Roland S. Hogg, 81, of Caldwell, died Tuesday, May 30, 1995, at home of natural causes.  Funeral services will be held at 10 a.m. Monday, June 5, 1995, at the LDS chapel on 12th and Everett in Caldwell. Bishop Roger M. Sharp will officiate.  Burial will follow at Hillcrest Cemetery.  Services are under the direction of Flahiff Funeral Chapel, Caldwell.
    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 Caldwell.
