Larry "Butch" Hogan

July 22, 1946 — November 19, 2021

Marion, North Carolina


Larry “Butch” Hogan, 75, of Marion, North Carolina, passed away in the early morning hours of Friday, November 19, 2021.

A native of McDowell County, Butch was born July 22, 1946 to the late J.C. and Norma Harklerode Hogan.

Butch began working at Cross Cotton Mill, and the Cross Mill community always held a special place in his heart. He was a teacher for thirty and ½ years, teaching mainly at East McDowell Junior High School. Butch loved his students, and he truly invested in their lives by teaching life lessons as well. He served as a fireman and lifeguard for a number of years. Along with his wife Linda, they opened L & B Furniture in 1984. He will be remembered as a friendly, giving, honest, and hardworking man.

Butch served on the McDowell County Board of Commissioners for eight years. He loved McDowell County and strove to make it a better place. Butch truly loved people. He enjoyed making people laugh, golfing, traveling, fishing, and simply being in the outdoors. Above all, he loved the Lord and attended New Manna Baptist Church. Butch was a family man that enjoyed spending time with his precious grandchildren. He leaves behind richer lives having been a part of them.

In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his sister, Glenda Melton.

Those left to cherish his precious memories are his wife, Linda; two sons, Allan, wife Beth, and Norm, wife Cassidy; six grandchildren, Calloway, Cross, Waverly, Graceson, Trustin, and Holiday; brother, Barry Hogan; brother-in-law, Jim Melton; several nieces, nephews, uncles, aunts, cousins, friends and colleagues who meant the world to him.

A funeral service will be held on Monday, November 22, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. at New Manna Baptist Church with Pastor Tony Shirley officiating. The family will receive friends from 11:00 until 1:00 p.m. Interment will follow at McDowell Memorial Park.

Butch’s love for his Lord Jesus Christ was great. He would want all to come to know his Savior as he did as his faith is now sight. You must recognize you are a sinner and your sin must be paid for. We will all face judgment one day and we have the opportunity to leave the world a better place by following Jesus each day. We must know that Jesus paid that price for us, we must receive him into our lives to be saved. It is our prayer that if you do not know Jesus as your Savior you would consider Him today.

~ Pray something like this from your heart ~

Dear Lord, I know that I am a sinner, and deserve to go to Hell, but I don't want to go. I am sorry for my sins, and I ask you to forgive me. Please, come into my heart and save me from my sins. Thank you for dying for me, and help me to live for you from this day forward.
In Jesus name, Amen.
