Collier Randall "Randy" Hoglen age 56 of Clyde, passed away on February 17, 2013 at his home after a long battle with cancer. He was surrounded by the ones he laughed with, lived for, and loved. Randy was born in Haywood County to Collier "Dick" and Betty Mehaffey Hoglen. He graduated from Tuscola High School and worked at Dayco and Conmet until he was forced to give up work due to his illness. Randy loved working in his yard, going to the beach, sports, and spending time with his family. He attended Long's Chapel UMC and loved to read his bible in his quiet time. In addition to his parents he is survived by his wife of 22 years Kathy Hoglen; son Dustin Hoglen; daughters Crystal Pace, Cameran Hoglen; and many other family members and friends. The family will receive friends Wednesday evening from 6PM until 8PM at Garrett Funeral Home. Funeral Services will be at 2PM Thursday, February 21, 2013 at Long's Chapel UMC. Interment will follow at Green Hill Cemetery. The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to the staff of MedWest Hospice and the Homestead. Their dedication and effort to provide quality care over the last month was a heartwarming blessing to our entire family. We thank God for the gift of his life and the blessing of the time we spent with him. Memorial Contributions may be made in his memory to MedWest Hospice. Garrett Funerals and Cremations is caring for the family.
