George H. Hogh, Jr. passed away on Tuesday, July 12, 2022 at the age of 86. He was a native New Orleanian born to the late Evelyn Martina Hogh and George Hebert Hogh, Sr. He attended Sacred Heart School in New Orleans and graduated from Jesuit High School in 1954. He continued his studies at Loyola University earning a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration in 1958. He then served in the Louisiana National Guard during the Vietnam War as a military policeman and medic. He worked as a Senior Insurance Claims Adjuster at Gallagher Transfer and Storage Co. and also worked as a credit manager in banking. George was a member of the Train Collectors Association Louisiana Chapter, the German Cultural Center, and the Genealogical Research Society of New Orleans. As a youth, he loved building models, playing baseball, and playing the clarinet. He was a model train collector and enthusiast. George enjoyed traveling by train, was quite the restaurant goer, and an avid NFL football fan especially for the Saints. He was a devout Catholic whose faith guided him through life praying to St. Therese of Lisieux, “The Little Flower”, St. Joseph, and the Sacred Heart of Jesus. He was a conscientious citizen, never missing the opportunity to vote. George will be greatly missed by his family. He was always very happy and friendly to everyone he met.
George was preceded in death by his parents, Evelyn and George Hogh, Sr.; his former wife for 18 years, Jean Ann Huet Hogh; his older brother, John Hogh; and his cousin and Godmother, Rosemary St. Germain.

We love you Daddy and will miss you. May you find peace in Jesus’s arms until we meet again.
