Farewell Pete Hogan

Hi From BT MR Staff,
Pete Hogan.jpg
Harry Bannister contacted us about the sad death of his friend Pete.




My old pal, Pete Hogan sadly passed away on the 14th April from cancer. Like me, he joined the GPO, as was, in September 1963 as a Y3YC and we eventually ended up working together from the mid sixties onwards in Dial House, firstly in Pioneer and then Rampart, until Pete left the company in about 1973 to work for XCEL installing comms equipment in bookmakers and similar.

After he left, we still continued to meet up, both as a twosome to play squash or to go pubbing or clubbing, or as a foursome with our wives.

This was all brought to a halt when I was promoted and moved to Oswestry but after we both retired I got in touch and we'd meet up as a sixsome, with Al Jones and his wife or as a foursome, when Al moved to Yorkshire.

Pete's wife passed away in December, 2017 but we continued to meet up for lunch until he was diagnosed with cancer in mid 2020.

I've no idea as to the funeral arrangements but given the current covid restrictions I'm certain it will be just be family and close friends but I'll let you know the details as soon as they become available.




If the current restrictions on funeral attendance are eased we will send out an update later.
