John D. Bogan

October 14, 1950 — September 30, 2011

John D. Bogan, age 60, passed away at his home early on Friday morning, September 30, 2011. John was born in Appleton on October 14, 1950 and was a 1969 graduate of Appleton East High School. John served in the United States Navy for some twenty four years, obtaining the rank of Senior Chief Petty Officer. He later worked at Anchor Foods, Home Depot, and most recently had been self-employed as a sales representative for Integrity Roofing. John enjoyed deer hunting, walleye fishing, and working on his cabin near Amberg. He was known by all as the family fix-it man – he could fix anything, anywhere, anytime. He was also an avid Packer and Brewer fan.

John was preceded in death by his mother Doris Bogan, and brothers Dan Bogan, Peter Bogan, and Allen Bogan.
