Former Rep. Lawrence Hogan Sr., the 88-year-old father to the governor, suffered massive stroke Saturday and his conditioned worsened considerably Thursday.

The governor canceled his public schedule to be at the bedside of his father, who was close friend and political mentor, the governor's spokesman said.

Hogan Sr. was the first Republican congressman to call for the impeachment of President Richard Nixon in 1974, and the only member of the GOP member of the House Judiciary Committee to vote for all three articles of impeachment.

My thoughts are with him and the governor.

It is likely some comfort that he witnessed his son rising to the top of MD politics. A life seemingly well-lived even before that. My thoughts are also with the Hogan family.

"At 10:24 tonight, an American hero, and the man that I am most proud of, passed away. He had an amazing life that spanned 88 years," Hogan wrote. "He leaves behind a loving family, countless friends and admirers, and a lasting legacy that won't be forgotten."

Condolences to the Governor. He is a great man so I assume his father was as well.

 

I will be at my own father's service tomorrow. It's never easy. No matter what the age of your parent was.

Condolences on your loss. Been there, done that too for both of my parents. You are correct, it's never easy.

Though you and I have major differences, please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your dad. In the grand scheme of things, politics mean nothing when compared to family.

Back when morals were something more than griping & whining.
