William (Bill) Francis Bogan, 90, of Spring Hill, Florida was called to heaven surrounded by his loving family to be with his beautiful wife, Sally, on Friday, October 20, 2017. He was deeply devoted to his family throughout his whole life. He was a man of integrity; a kind, sincere, honest and ethical man.

Born, September 6, 1927, Bill was the son of Edward and Mary (Polly) Bogan of Bradley Gardens, NJ. He is survived by three sons, John & Ruth Bogan of Nazareth, PA, Joseph Bogan of Neshanic Station, NJ, Robert & Crystal Bogan of Wind Gap, PA; four daughters, Carolyn & Dick Hayes of Sun City West, AZ, Joann & Jerry Arsenault of Londonderry, NH, Kathleen & Frank Boate' of Wake Forest, NC, Mary LaMountain of Raleigh, NC; Daughter-in-law, Sheila Stone of Brooksville, FL, and Daughter-in-law, Ginny Bogan of Milford, NJ. Bill was predeceased by his most wonderful wife of 65 years in July of 2015, also by his daughter, Linda Leonard and his son, George Bogan. Bill had 22 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren. He also had friends too numerous to count.

Bill worked at Singer Corporation and then was General Manager and Vice-President at S.S. White, a Division of Pennwalt Corporation in NJ for many years until his retirement at 58 years young, at which time, he and Sally retired to beautiful, sunny Florida.

He was a very active member, past Commander and boating navigation instructor of the US Coast Guard Auxiliary for 32 years and was also a member of the Hernando County Yacht Club. He was a Sea Scout leader in NJ. Bill was a dedicated husband and father. He loved sailing; he and Sally sailed their sailboat from New Jersey to Florida when he retired, and they traveled cross-country, to Europe, and went on many cruises. He was very active in church as a Eucharistic minister and taught religious education classes for many years in NJ. Bill served his country during the last years of World War II as a Merchant Marine.

We will be "Celebrating Bill's Fantastic Life" after the burial at Hernando Beach Yacht Club Address:4163 Shoal Line Blvd, Hernando Beach, FL 34607 at 2:30 pm on Thursday, October 26th. Please come and share your stories of Bill with his family and friends.
