DOTHAN, Ala. - Mr. "Charlie" Hogue, beloved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather went home to be with the Lord Tuesday, March 4, 2008. He was 83.

Memorial services were held Thursday, March 6 at 11 a.m. in the chapel of First United Methodist Church of Dothan with Dr. James Sanders and Dr. Christopher Feucht officiating. Graveside services will be held at Fairfax Cemetery in Valley Friday, March 7 at 2 p.m. with Southern Heritage Funeral Home directing.

The family received friends in the church parlor at 10 a.m.

Charlie was born April 30, 1924 in Tallassee, Ala., and was raised in Fairfax. He resided in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and Slidell, La., for many years prior to relocating to Dothan following Hurricane Katrina. He was a Navy veteran of World War II, attended the Citadel and was a University of Alabama alumnus. Charlie was a church lay leader and past president of United Methodist Men. Recently he was given a Lifetime Achievement Recognition Award on behalf of the United Methodist Men's Club at First United Methodist Church of Slidell.

He was an Eagle Scout and was involved in scouting activities for more than 20 years. Throughout his career, Charlie enjoyed working as a salesman, soda "jerk" and Avon dealer.

His hobbies included gardening, tennis, hiking, bicycling, square dancing, Mardi Gras festivities, singing in the choir, writing poetry and songs and volunteering at church and the hospital. He was an avid "Bama" fan and a collector of rocks, keys, sticks, buttons, knives and foreign coins. Charlie lived life to the fullest, and humor was a hallmark of his life.

He is preceded in death by an infant son, Charles Sansom III.

Survivors include his wife of 57 years, Catherine; two sons and daughters-in-law, Alan and Ginger Hogue and Mark and Stephanie Hogue; three daughters, Nancy, Pamela and Janis; two sons-in-law, Chris Feucht and Bob McCoy; 12 grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.

Charlie leaves behind a legacy of love and faithfulness.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to First United Methodist Church, 1380 West Main St., Dothan, Ala. 36301, for a special project in honor of Charlie.
