L. Brent Hoggan

November 30, 1933 — January 21, 2023

Our beloved patriarch, Louis Brent Hoggan, 89, passed away peacefully at his home in North Logan, on Saturday, January 21, 2023, of natural causes.

Brent was born 30 November 1933, in Ogden, Utah, the oldest child of Louis J. and Neta Pearl Child Hoggan. He had an idyllic childhood and youth growing up in rural South Ogden with his siblings and neighborhood friends.

Brent graduated from Weber High School and attended Utah State University. He served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Western Canadian Mission, where he formed many lifetime friendships.

He returned to USU, where he became reacquainted with LaConna Purser. They were married on June 20, 1956, in the Logan Temple. They enjoyed 66 happy years together and complimented each other perfectly. LaConna taught school while Brent finished college at USU and his law degree at the University of Utah.

Brent began his law practice with Kirton & Bettilyon (now Kirton, McConkie & Bettilyon), the Church’s law firm. In 1964, he answered the call from Charles P. Olson to join him in his practice in Logan, Utah, and the law firm of Olson & Hoggan was born. Olson & Hoggan had its genesis in 1913 with lawyer Asa Bullen and has continued its existence for more than 59 years. Brent took great pride in perpetuating the existence of the law firm founded by Asa Bullen. He practiced law for over 60 years and left a proliferation of not only clients, but friends.

Brent was a dedicated servant of the Lord Jesus Christ and served in numerous teaching and leadership capacities. His Church service was born out of a conviction that God lives, Jesus is the Christ, and Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. He was an active high priest in the North Park Fifth Ward at the time of his death.

Brent loved horses and farming. Over time he accumulated a small farm in North Logan where he, with his family, raised hay and grain and bred, raised, trained, and showed registered Quarter Horses. Each horse he bred bore as a part of his name the word “Cache.” If a person runs across a horse with “Cache” in its name, it was bred on the Smiling H Ranch.

He was active in the administration of higher education and local government and was heavily involved in community service.

Brent was preceded in death by his beloved wife, LaConna, and son Kirt. He is survived by his children Robinette (Bill) Jensen, Brad (Dacei) Hoggan, Paul (Kari) Hoggan, Tina (Gary) Folsom, and Julie (Stacy) Nelson, 21 grandchildren, and 45 great grandchildren. Also surviving are his siblings Caroline (Burke) Mattsson, Robert B. (Lynda) Hoggan, and Tamara Judkins, and a sister-in-law Lois J. Purser. He loved and took pride in all his posterity. His wisdom, council, support, and example blessed all our lives.
