Mike Hogan, 62, of Meadville died Friday, Dec. 20, 2013, at Presque Isle Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Erie.
Mike was born in Meadville on July 30, 1951, a son of Dr. Robert G. and Martha Brown Hogan.
He was a 1969 graduate of Meadville High School and a 1976 graduate of Mansfield State University. Mike managed Hunter’s Inn for two years before he purchased the Scoreboard Tavern in 1978. In addition to owning and operating the Scoreboard, he managed the Taylor Hose Co.
In 2005, Mike won the Community Sports Service Award. He was a big supporter of local youth sports teams and was always willing to help in any way he could. He also sponsored several Sertoma slow pitch, modified and over 35 softball teams each year. Mike was an avid golfer and sponsored the annual “Scoreboard Open’’ for the past 33 years.
Mike was a staunch Alabama football fan. He thoroughly enjoyed discussing all “Tide” related developments and eagerly anticipated his fall visits to Tuscaloosa to watch “his” team play.
