Daddy was born with the name John Adelbert after his two grandfathers, John Belfast Bemnjamin Franklin Hogg and Adelbert Eugene Flowers. For some reason he did not like the Adelbert so dropped the A and went by John D. or John Delbert Hogg. He was born the first child of Frank Leroy and Blanche Mina Flowers Hogg, May 10, 1917 in Telocaset, Union, Oregon on his grandfather Hogg's homestead. He was joined by a brother and two sisters over the next seven years. They grew up in Eastern Oregon between Baker and LaGrande mainly and John married Imogene Louise Hayes when she was a senior in Baker High School and they started their family.

They remained in Baker and had two daughters and then moved to LaGrande where they had another daughter and a son. John worked as a brakeman/switchman for the Union Pacific Railroad until he lost his eye doing work on an automobile for his father-in-law. He was rushed to Portland, Oregon because there were no doctors qualified to do the surgery he required and the family remained adding another daughter and another son.

John eventually became a Cargo Checker on the waterfront and travelled the coast of Washington and Oregon working at the ports he was being called to work at.

Forced into disability and retirement he left the waterfront and lived a short six months after being diagnosed with lung cancer.

He was survived by his wife, six children, fifteen grandchildren, his father, brother, and both sisters and numerous in-laws and nieces and nephews.
