August 11, 2002

Emory V. Hogans Jr., a retired career Maryland National Guard officer and World War II veteran, died Wednesday at Shands Jacksonville hospital in Florida of complications from a fall. He was 82.

A longtime Timonium resident who had lived in Interlachen, Fla., since 1988, Mr. Hogans was born and raised in Rock Hall.

A graduate of Rock Hall High School, he enlisted in the Army in 1942 and later transferred to the Army Air Forces. Trained as a pilot to fly B-17s and B-29s, he spent the war years as a flight instructor at bases in the United States training new fliers.

After the end of the war, he returned to Rock Hall and enlisted in the Maryland National Guard. During the 1950s, he was the commander of the Maryland National Guard Armory in Chestertown before being assigned to the 5th Regiment Armory in Baltimore. He retired with the rank of colonel in 1984.

"His entire life was the Army," said his sister, Laura Hogans Boyer of Chestertown.

Mr. Hogans was married in 1941 to Elizabeth M. Lewis, who died in 1984.

He was a member of Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church, Route 20 and Rock Hall Road, Rock Hall, where services will be held at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday.

In addition to his sister, he is survived by his second wife of 18 years, the former Nellie Cosner of Gainesville, Fla.; and a brother, Franklin T. Hogans Sr. of Rock Hall.
