Ben introduced & provided me one of my greatest loves in this world, a sweet boxer puppy named Lola, Bo's sister. I am forever grateful to both he and Sandy.

To Sandy, Kate, John, Caleb and Benjamin,
I have been trying to come up with a favorite story to share about Ben and I finally realized I do not have one favorite story or even two or three, although there are a couple that come to mind that can’t be shared on this forum! Ben was involved in the entire book of my life, not just in short stories that I can easily share. We went to kindergarten, grade school and high school together. We played little league together. Ben had a wicked fastball as a 10 year old but control was not really his thing and I was on the receiving end of more than one of his high and tight pitches. Ben went to LSU and I went to USL but we remained as close as ever, getting together for football games or any other reason we could come up with just to hang out.

Ben and I worked offshore together during the summers. We were in each other’s weddings, celebrated the births of each other’s children and vacationed together numerous times.

As business owners, Ben and Nancy formed a bond that only they could share. He advised her and she did the same for him. On many occasions Nancy would tell me, she and Ben talked about this or that during the day and I just thought that was so cool, that my dearest childhood friend and my wife had such a special connection.

We are going to think of Ben every day because he is so much a part of us, and for that, we are forever grateful. Our memories will give us some comfort and will help us to go on. May the love of God give us peace.
Michael and Nancy

Sandy, Kate, Cale, Benjamin, John, Brenan and Beau. You all know how much we love Ben and how we are grieving with you. Being best friends with our little group for over 40 years has been nothing short of a blessing. I can not image our lives going forward without Ben. He and Keith have talked numerous times about all the things we all were going to do as a group growing old together. Our group is now incomplete, but we will continue to celebrate Ben's life in living out his dream. Sandy we will all continue to grow old together through travel, beach trips, dinning, crawfish boils, hunting (maybe not you ) and just hanging together. I know I speak for all. I already miss his voice, his hugs, his jokes and his gentlemen ways. Ben was a sweet loving teddy bear and is sorely missed. We are so heart broken. With Love, Kitty and Keith

To Sandra and the entire Hogan Family,

We were so sad to hear about Ben. Please know that we are thinking of and praying for all of you during this difficult time.

We enjoyed working with Ben over the last 20 years as his benefits and retirement consultants. I'll never forget the first time I talked with Ben and he told me in no uncertain terms how much he hated " insurance" and thought we were all crooks! I laughed, but he was serious! Even though our work relationship started off a little rocky, he eventually came to trust and enjoy working with us as well. We will miss Ben.

With deepest sympathy to all of you.

On behalf of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart Alumni Association and Brother Martin High School, I offer our prayers and condolences. We will say a Mass in his memory.

Father of all, we pray to you for Ben, and for all those whom we love but see no longer. Grant to them eternal rest. Let light perpetual shine upon them. May his soul and the souls of all the departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

Benny and I grew up together as kids in the 1400 block of Burbank Drive. I have many fond memories of us playing all over the neighborhood. I also have fond memories of Mr. Ben and Ms. Rose. They were a good family and fun to be around. Sorry we didn’t keep in touch, sounds like he grew up to be a fine gentleman and father.
My sincerest condolences to his family.
Praise God, alleluia, Ben has reached the promised land!
