James B. “Jim” Hogan, age 76, passed away at Sunrise Assisted Living in Burlington on Thursday, July 4, 2024, with his loving wife by his side.  He was the beloved husband of Mary Jane “Jane” (Borden) Hogan, with whom he shared 50 wonderful years of marriage.

Born in Charleston, SC on July 21, 1947 he was the dear son of the late Dorothy (Brown) and Bernard Hogan.  Following his high school education, Jim enlisted in the United States Air Force, and proudly served his country for 20 years.  During his time in the military, he also was able to earn two bachelor’s degrees, one from the University of New Hampshire and one from University of Massachusetts Lowell, and a Master’s Degree in Management.  He also worked in maintenance on airplanes during his time in the Air Force.  Jim was bestowed the honor of taking his last journey with the military home on the U.S.S. Constitution.  Following his retirement from the Air Force, he worked in the appliance department at Sear’s, and always tried to impart whatever wisdom he had from his years in the service.

In his free time, Jim could be found educating himself on anything and everything historical.  He loved learning about American History, especially anything related to Concord or Lexington.  He was a member of the Lincoln Minutemen, and took part in many of their reenactments throughout the years.  Beyond his thirst for historical knowledge, Jim and his wife were also devoted to their Methodist faith, and were active members of the Lexington Methodist Church for many years.  They also enjoyed going out to eat together, and just spending quality time with one another.  Whether he was bringing her favorite pink roses to her, or just basking in the love they shared, Jim never missed a chance to make Jane feel special.  His enthusiastic sense of humor and zest for life, and love for his family are always first to come to mind when thinking of Jim.  His devotion to each of them and to his country will always be gratefully and lovingly remembered.

Along with his dear wife Jane, Jim is survived by his daughter Cindy Hogan of Montana; his granddaughter Jasmine Waithe of Millbury, as well as many other dear relatives, and wonderful friends at Sunrise.

Friends and family are invited to attend Jim's memorial service, Saturday, July 13th at 2pm at the Sullivan Funeral Home, 43 Winn Street, Burlington, MA.
