Walter “Butch” Hogue Obituary

Walter “Butch” Hogue, 80, of Tallassee, died Tuesday, March 5, 2024, at his home. Funeral services will be Saturday, March 9, 2024, at 11:00 A.M. at Bradford’s Chapel Methodist Church with Jed Carter officiating. Visitation will be prior to the service beginning at 10:00 A.M. 

He was preceded in death by his parents James and Juanita Hogue of Lewisville, Ohio, and his sister Mary Alice Arnold of Marietta, Ohio. 

Mr. Hogue is survived by his wife of 58 years Marjorie Hansen Hogue; his children Johanna “Joey” Hogue Courson (David) of Smiths Station, AL, and Christina “Christy” Nelson (Phillip) of Tallassee, AL; his grandchildren Caroline Walker (Trey) of Smiths Station, Catherine Courson of Smiths Station, Caleb Courson of Smiths Station, Faith Nelson of Tallassee, and Mason Nelson of Tallassee; his sister Marjory Fouss (Doug) of Sun City Center, FL; and several loved nieces and nephews. He was a member of Bradford’s Chapel Methodist Church.

After struggling with alcohol addiction for many years, Walter entered rehabilitation where he worked hard to achieve sobriety. He acknowledged that addiction was a daily struggle, and attended Alcoholics Anonymous for over 31 years.  He faithfully served as a sponsor for others with similar struggles.  He found new passion and purpose through serving his local AA chapter and supporting others in their journey of sobriety.  If Walter could give anyone words of advice, he would tell others it is never too late to change. 

His pride and joy was his family. The family remembers his sense of humor and generosity. He enjoyed the outdoors and spent many hours fishing and camping with family. He had a strong work ethic and instilled that into others.  In his retirement years, he enjoyed reading his Bible on a daily basis. 

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Bradford’s Chapel in Shorter, Alabama.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
