Frank L. Vogt Jr.

Headed auto recycler

Frank L. Vogt Jr., president of Vogt's Auto Recyclers in Sandymount, Carroll County, died Aug. 9 after a heart attack at work.

Mr. Vogt, 76, who was known as Jake and lived in Sandymount, near Finksburg, started the automobile parts business on a family-owned farm in the mid-1950s. Earlier, the Sandymount native farmed on the property.

He was a charter member of the Maryland Auto and Truck Recyclers Association.

A life member of Grace Lutheran Church in Westminster and a charter member of the Reese and Community Volunteer Fire Company, he also belonged to the Westminster Elks Lodge, the Reisterstown Lodge of the Moose and the Roaring Run Lions Club.

He was active in the charitable programs of the Lions Club and in independent charitable programs that he often began at holiday times.

A memorial service will be conducted at 2 p.m. today at Grace Lutheran Church in Westminster.

He is survived by his wife, the former Helen Muse; a son, Frank L. "Butch" Vogt III of Sandymount; a daughter, Judy Ann Furbay of Sandymount; five sisters, Ann Phillips of Springfield, Ohio, Isabelle Keller and Margaret Hesson, both of Hanover, Pa., and Lena Bowers and Minnie Lambert, both of Westminster; and two grandchildren.

The family suggested memorial contributions to the Reese and Community Volunteer Fire Company, the Carroll County Unit of the American Cancer Society or the Carroll County Branch of the American Heart Association.
