Lee Avnel Hogan was born in Kentucky on Jan. 10, 1932 and he joined his wife Patricia, mother, father, one brother, and two sisters in Heaven on July 12, 2014. 

He graduated from Clarkdale Arizona and was a resident of Arizona since 1934. He spent 4 years serving in the Navy. 

Lee was a founding member of San Manuel Assembly of God. He was a long time San Manuel Sheriffs Posse Member and a volunteer fire fighter for the Tri-Community.

Lee enjoyed horseback riding, playing bass guitar and harmonica, and could often be seen riding  around the Tri-community on his Harley. He was well known in the Tri Community for repairing homes- lending a helping hand to those in need. He once stated that he had probably been in every house in San Manuel at one time or another to do repairs.

He loved to meet with his music friends on a regular basis. Every Friday night he was found at Kibby’s in Catalina playing with the band.

Lee and Pat have seven children: Diana (Don), David (Sharon), Anne all of San Manuel, Debbie (Robbie) of Tucson, Daniel (Renetta) of Silver City NM, Avnel (Shelly) of Maricopa and Nathan (Leasa) of Oracle.

Lee and Pat have 20 grandchildren and 26 great-grandchildren.

Services will be held at San Manuel Assembly of God Church on Friday, July 25, 201 Main St. San Manuel. 

Viewing will be at 9 a.m. with services at 10 a.m. Interment will be at 2 p.m. at South Lawn Mortuary in Tucson. 

Lee’s family invites his family and friends  to join us at First Avenue School Multipurpose Room for dinner and fellowship from 5-7 p.m. There will be music and great story telling! In honor of Lee’s tireless service to the community we invite you to “pay it forward” with acts of kindness in the community.
