Conrad Davis Hogue, Sr., 97 of Henrico, Va., passed away on Wednesday, September 20, 2023, at the Pearl at Watkins Centre, Midlothian, Va.
Survivors include his six children, Gary Hogue (Mary Elizabeth), Phyllis Cox (Wayne), Conrad Hogue, Jr. (Debbie), Tony Hogue, Walter Hogue (Carol), and Melissa Katz (Todd); ten grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; and five great-great-grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his three wives, Sandra Worley, Hilda Tew, and Irene Dickerson; his parents, Nathaniel Hogue and Hazel Sellars Powell; his siblings, Josephine Leonard, Alice Sherwin, Tony Hogue, and John Hogue; and his grandchildren, Melinda and David Wayne Cox.
Conrad served in the U.S. Army, 82nd Airborne Division as a paratrooper, and U.S. Naval Service during World War II and was very proud of his service.
During his career, he was a Mortgage Banker and a Commercial Real Estate Appraiser. He enjoyed golfing, boating, tennis, and running.
Conrad was a “bon vivant” and extremely hospitable. He epitomized “Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow” (Helen Keller) and possessed an eternally positive attitude expressed with his usual “Everything is coming up roses”. He was born in Raleigh, NC, and was the consummate Southern Gentleman. His bright light will be missed.
Memorial service will be held at a later date.
