Darren M. Hogan
March 15, 1959-December 21, 2018
TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES, NM-Darren was born in Quad Cities, IL on March 15, 1959 to Jack Hogan and Annette Kelley. He was raised in Silvis, IL and later moved to Rockford, IL where he met and married his wife Charis Hogan. The majority of his working years were spent as a machinist in Rockford, IL. Darren loved his work and was grateful to have a career he thoroughly enjoyed. Four years ago, Darren's dream of living in the desert came true when he and his wife moved to Truth or Consequences, NM. Darren loved to go fishing and would often be found at Elephant Butte Lake or the Rio Grande River enjoying his favorite hobby. When not fishing, Darren loved riding his Harley Davidson Motorcycle side by side with his wife. Darren cherished a simple, quiet life to sit back and enjoy his time with his family, friends, and dogs. Darren was the best "dog dad" any dog could have.
