October 9, 1918 - June 25, 2017
Martin Franklin Hogerheide (98) passed away June 25, 2017 at the Eden Center in Kalkaska. Martin was born on October 9th, 1918 on a farm in South Boardman. Martin was a self-employed mechanic in South Boardman until 1951 when he moved his family to Albuquerque, NM. In Albuquerque, he worked at Jill's Bakery as the fleet manager of the bakery trucks, moving up to equipment manager where he was responsible for upkeep and repair on the bakery equipment. In retirement, his love of the area drew him back to South Boardman. Martin loved traveling with the love of his life, Evelyn, and meeting new people. They traveled to many places around the world, including visiting Holland to explore his Dutch heritage, and making several trips to Alaska. He was a wonderful reference to days gone by, as his memory was amazing and his stories were endless. His sense of humor and kindness were some of his most endearing traits, and anyone who was lucky enough to be around him when he was reminiscing would attest to that. Martin loved his family, taking drives down back country roads in his GMC Tracker, coffee with his buddies, chocolate cherry cake, strawberry shortcake and homemade ice cream. Martin is survived by his brother Merwin Hogerheide (Blanche), daughters Doris Wagoner (Jerry), Wendy Hogerheide, son Dennis Hogerheide (Lois), grandchildren David (Vicki), Derek (Susie), Jeff (Cheryl), Carrie (Dave), Christianna (Jose), and Scott (Karen), great grandchildren Kyle, Makenna, Trent, Laney, Shauna, Michael, Daniel, Kortney, Cheyanne, Colton, Alexandria, and Josiah, great-great grandchildren Rhianna, Aiden, Kraig and Kole. He was preceded in death by his wife of 72 years Evelyn (Lamphear) Hogerheide, his son Kirk Hogerheide, brothers Carl Hogerheide (Grace) & Eman Hogerheide, Jr. (June), his parents Eman Hogerheide, Sr. and Edna (Young) Hogerheide. A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday July 2, 2017 at the Kalkaska Funeral Home with visitation at noon and Celebration of Life Service at 1:00pm. A luncheon will be held at the Kalkaska United Methodist Church immediately following the service. Arrangements entrusted to Kalkaska Funeral Home and Cremation Services.
