November 16, 1923 - October 7, 2019
William K. Hogan, born in Trenton on November 16, 1923 to Bertha D. (Hahn) and William J. Hogan, passed away peacefully on October 7, 2019. Following distinguished service in the U.S Army during World War II in the Battle of the Bulge, he began an exemplary career in the field of hospital administration at St. Francis Medical Center that spanned almost 40 years. He then served for another 7 years as CEO of Helene Fuld Medical Center from 1986 to 1993. His success in the hospital field was driven by compassion for patients and employees alike, and led to volunteer service in his retirement as Director of the Anchor House Foundation, the fund-raising arm of the organization that provides shelter for runaway and abused children. His untiring commitment to Anchor House over many years was honored by dedication of a wing in his name. A lifetime of leadership and volunteering touched many organizations including, among others, the Ancient Order of Hibernians on Kuser Road, the MidState Health Advisory Corp, the Blood Center of NJ and St. Raphael’s Roman Catholic Church.
A loving husband, a caring father, grandfather, and great grandfather, he was predeceased by his wife Irene Sagedy Hogan; he is survived by his wife Annette Conti Hogan; his three children, Karen Hogan and husband Gary Small, William Hogan, Jr., and Maureen DeMussi and husband Joe; brother-in-law Lawrence G. Conti; four grandchildren, Cameron Hogan, Kyle Hogan and his wife Emily, Kiersten Hogan, and Connor Hogan; and great granddaughter Paisley May Hogan.
