Mr. Sammie Lew Hogwood, 92, of Hardeeville, SC passed away on November 30, 2023. He was born on March 10, 1931.
Mr. Hogwood retired from the United States Army in 1968. He was a very active member of the community where he resided with his grandson for the last three years. He was a member of the HLM Veterans Group where he was honored as “the oldest member” and participated in taking food to VA Tiny Homes in Savannah, GA to help other veterans. Going to the shooting range was a hobby that Mr. Sammie enjoyed, and he loved playing cards and playing chess. His neighbors will likely remember him riding around the area and saluting all the flags that he passed on his way. He would meet people while he was out in the neighborhood and invite them to come to his home to play chess; many came to play. Three days each week, Mr. Hogwood attended the Senior Center in Ridgeland, SC where he said people “treated him like a king.” He will be remembered for his pleasure in playing tricks on people and making people laugh and will be missed by family and friends from several states across the United States.
Left to cherish his memory are one son, Rick Hogwood, one grandson, Steve Keown, one great granddaughter, Lakelynn Fink, and his wife, Barbara Garrison of Levelland, TX. He was predeceased by his first wife of 50 years, Betty Hogwood, one son, “Junior”, two daughters, Yvonne and Suzanne.
