Kenneth P. Bogue, Jr. 73, of Punta Gorda, FL passed away September 7, 2018. He was born October 1, 1944 in Ft. Worth, TX to Kenneth Paul Bogue, Sr. and Cara Belle Sappington. Ken graduated from Pascal High School in Ft. Worth, TX, Class of 1962. He served as a Military Policeman in the US Army from 1964 to1967. Ken met his beloved wife, Sarah Yealy, while in the Army and stationed at Fort Detrick in Maryland. They married in 1966. Once Ken and Sarah were married, Ken was transferred to Panama and stationed in the Canal Zone. Sarah accompanied Ken to Panama and this is where they met their life long and dearest friends, John and Susan Marto, After Ken was discharged from the Army, Ken and Sarah resided in Ft. Worth, TX. Ken graduated from Texas Christian University in June 1969. In 1971 Ken and Sarah moved to Maryland and in 1972 their son Jason was born. Ken joined the Prince George's County Police Department in Maryland in 1974. Ken was with the Police Department for 24 years and retired as a Sergeant in August 1998. He went to work as a FEMA Security Specialist from 2000 to 2012 and was stationed in New York City immediately following the attacks of September 11, 2001. Ken had numerous assignments with FEMA that took him all over the country to include the Islands of Chuuk in the south Pacific.
Ken had many passions in life to include golf, playing golf, watching golf, talking about golf, telling you how he was better than you at golf, wagering on golf, taking golf trips and having an adult beverage while doing all the above with golf.
Ken also loved his Dallas Cowboys, Baltimore Orioles and most dearly his TCU Horned Frogs.
The thing truest in Ken's heart was his family, friends and country. Ken Bogue could not have been a more loving, caring, giving protector of family and friends. Ken was so proud of his two wonderful and beautiful granddaughters, Ellie and Emma. Ken had a loving and truly meaningful relationship with his sister Annie (Stephan Bugenhagen), his step-mother Willie Mae and his daughter-in-law Karen. There is no description that can be put into words to describe the passion and love he had for Sarah and Jason.
In April 2013 Ken received a double lung transplant. This was necessary due to injuries sustained during his deployment to New York City after September 11, 2001. Ken recovered well following the surgery and was able to enjoy many wine filled vacations with Sarah. Ken and Sarah also enjoyed many trips to Maryland over the past five years to see Jason, Karen, Ellie and Emma. Ken never let these injuries define him, he meted them head on and fought valiantly. His family and friends were amazed by his strength and resiliency.
Ken will be truly missed by everyone. No family or friend gathering will ever be the same.
Ken is survived by his wife of 52 years, Sarah Bogue; son, Jason Bogue; sister Annie Bogue; step-mother Willie Mae Bogue; daughter-in-law Karen Bogue; granddaughters; Ellie and Emma; and dear friends, John and Sue Marto.
