Ivan Ogle Obituary, Death – My father, Ivan E. Ogle, a former resident of Mayo, passed away on December 3, 2022, as a result of complications associated to Covid-19. I tell you this with a heavy heart because it was the day he passed away. He had 93 years under his belt. He was the son of the late Max Ogle and Hazel Ogle and was born on January 4, 1929 in Oil City, Pennsylvania. He enlisted in the United States Navy in 1946 and served with distinction for a total of twenty years.
After achieving the status of first class dental technician, he decided to retire. After serving in the Navy for 20 years, he eventually retired and went to work for Dealy Dental Company, where he was employed as a dental equipment installation and repairman for the next 20 years. In 1950, he wed the woman who would become the love of his life, Ellen E. Gray. They were happily married for 64 years when she passed away in 2014.
Ivan was also the President of the Annapolis Fleet Reserve Club in Annapolis, Maryland, where he served for a total of four terms. Bowling, shuffleboard, and square dancing were some of the many activities that he and Ellen liked doing together. Ivan was a devoted golfer who relished spending time on the course with his pals and watching golf competitions to pick up new strategies. His wife Ellen, his brothers Max and Ted, his sisters Ella, Elizabeth, Patricia, and Avis, and his son Mike Ogle all passed away before him. Also, he was predeceased by his son Mike Ogle.
Pat Ogle and his wife Kathy of Annapolis, Kate Yeager and her husband Bill of Queen Anne, and Kristine Smith and her husband Bowie of Easton are his children. He is also survived by his daughter-in-law Betsy Ogle of Hickory, North Carolina, as well as his sister Retha Bickel. In addition to his devoted grandchildren Keldie, Jennifer, Liz, Amy, Jeffrey, Erin, Caroline, and Brad, he is also survived by 13 great-grandchildren. Keldie, Jennifer, Liz, Amy, and Jeffrey also survive him. A memorial service or celebration of life will take place at a later time. Donations can be sent in his honor to The Dixon House, which is located at 108 North Higgins Street, Easton, Maryland 21601.
