06/21/13 - NNHS Newsletter - Jesse "Buddy" Hogg

 Jesse Hope Hogg, Jr.
(31 Jan 1923 - 19 June 2013)

Hampton High School Class of 1940

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
 I was astonished and deeply grieved to read of the death of beloved local dentist, Jesse Hogg, Hampton High School Class of 1940, who passed away at his home in Hampton on Wednesday, June 19, 2013 at the age of 90. 

   Dr. Hogg was our family dentist all during my school years (1954-1965), and I remember him with great fondness.  He was one of those people who absolutely shone, as though there was an aura of light surrounding him.  Looking at him, one would never have known he had been touched by the horrors of war.

   I tried in vain to locate him about ten years ago; I deeply regret I was unable to do so.

From the Daily Press - 06/21/13:

                       Jesse H. Hogg, Jr.
      HAMPTON - Jesse Hope Hogg, Jr. DDS died peacefully at home on June 19, 2013 surrounded by family.

"Buddy" practiced dentistry from 1953 to 1993 and was a lifelong farmer, quail hunter and fisherman. He loved life and enjoyed singing barbershop chorus with the Matinee Idlers group.

Born January 31, 1923 in the family home on Briarfield Road, Buddy was a Hampton native. He was a Hampton Crabber, class of 1940. He attended the Apprentice School at Newport News Shipbuilding until drafted during World War II. He served as a sharpshooter in Patton's 3rd Army in Europe. He was wounded during the Battle of the Bulge and awarded the Purple Heart.

"Doc" was a wonderful man and a great supporter of the City of Hampton, a community he and his family helped mold. I enjoyed our many times together working out t the YMCA.

Whispering Hope

Words and Music by Alice Hawthorne (11 May 1827 - 22 Nov 1902), 1868

"Alice Hawthorne" was really Setimus Winner, one of the most versatile writers of the mid-19th century.
Winner went from the bird calls of "Listen to the Mocking Bird" to the doggerel nonsense
of "Oh, Where, Oh, Where Has My Little Dog Gone?" to the gentle and optimistic "Whispering Hope."

Soft as the voice of an angel
Breathing a lesson unheard;
Hope with a gentle persuasion
Whispers her comforting word.

Wait till the darkness is over,
Wait till the tempest is done;
Hope for the sunshine tomorrow,
After the shower is gone.

Whispering Hope,
Oh, how welcome thy voice,
Making my heart
in its sorrow rejoice.
