Florence - Michael P. "Mike" Hogan, 69, passed away Thursday, September 1, 2016 after a long illness at his home in Florence surrounded by his loving family. Mike was born in Chicago, IL on January 8, 1947 to Lawrence M. and Doris L. Hogan. He graduated from St. Rita High School in 1965. In 1970, his love for the outdoors brought him to Missoula. He worked for Champion International in Bonner along with his brother, his future wife Ann, and many friends. He worked there for several years before changing jobs to become the regional sales representative for USF Reddaway Trucking. Mike married Ann L. Fahlsing on September 12, 1987 in Missoula, where they lived for ten years. They later moved to Florence in 1997. Mike had a deep passion for everything outdoors. He was an avid hunter and fisherman and loved camping with friends and family. After his retirement in 2012, his true passion became his home. He especially loved his yard and his two favorite pals, Petey and Dutch (his Westie Terrier and Yellow Lab). Mike loved life to its fullest and his absence will be felt strongly by all who knew him and loved him. Mike is survived by his wife, Ann; his two children, Michael Hogan and Holly (Greg) Goodwin; his grandchildren, Jocie and Caden; and his 3 siblings, sister Patti D’Esmond, brothers Rick Hogan (Sue), Kevin Hogan; and numerous nieces and nephews. Per Mike’s wishes there will be no formal service held, rather there will be a private family gathering at a later date. The family asks that memorial donations be made in Mike’s honor to a charity of the contributor’s choice.

To the Hogan Family,
My heart goes out to all of you during this time of grieving. I worked with Mike for 5 years at Reddaway. He was a wonderful man to work with and I missed working with him when I left. He was a generous man and he will be greatly missed.

I first met Mike in 1991 while working for Weissman's there. He was the rep for a freight company (not Redaway) that didn't enjoy the best of reputations. I believe he was the only reason people continued to do business with that carrier as we all later went where Mike went. He was that kind of guy. When I moved to Missoula, we continued to see each other as he was my first choice for all matters freight until he retired. He never let on that he was anything other than at his best every time we saw him - once again he was just that kind of guy. We will miss him dearly. He was that kind of guy....
