Bill Bogle

Services celebrating the life of Clarence McKnight Bogle Bill Bogle will be held Saturday, August 25, 2012 at 2:00 P.M. at the First Presbyterian Church in Dexter, New Mexico, followed by an old fashioned wake at the home of Bill and Berneice Bogle at 7190 South Lincoln Avenue, Dexter, New Mexico. The services will be preceded by a private burial.

He passed away, surrounded by his family at his home in Dexter Wednesday evening, August 15, 2012. He was born March 20, 1919 to Hal Green Bogle and Inez Fay Bogle in Kenton, Tennessee and moved with his parents the following year to Dexter, where he lived all his life. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 65 years, Berneice Gilmore Bogle, and by his parents and his brothers, Jackson C. Bogle, James H. Bogle and John Peter Bogle. He graduated from Hagerman High School in 1936 and Vanderbilt University in 1940. He met Berneice at a soda shop in Hagerman, and they were married on January 9, 1943.

Berneice and Bill lived in Dexter where he was a farmer and rancher. They have five children, Mary Lynn Bogle, Stuart McKnight Bogle, Donald Hal Bogle, Beverly Ann Bogle Coots and Scott Gilmore Bogle. He has nine grandchildren and eight great grandchildren. His sons and daughters live in Chaves County where they work in the family agricultural business, with the exception of Mary Lynn who is an attorney in Roswell and Artesia.

Bills life was devoted to his family, his church and his community. He was a devoted husband and father, an elder in the Dexter Presbyterian Church, and he donated his time and talents to many community organizations over the entirety of his life. He was a humble, generous and honorable man.

Pallbearers will be his grandsons. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, contributions be made to the Dexter Presbyterian Church.

    I am sorry for your loss I was one of his care givers for a bit. Your dad would talk fondly of his family. We used to sit up at night when he could not sleep and he would tell me about his parents settling here and all that went on thru his life. He missed your mom greatly and he told me many times that he was at peace and he was ready to join her. I will always treasure the time we spent together.

    I am sorry to read of your loss. Many have lost loved ones and want to see them again. The Bible actually says what will be deaths unavoidable eventuality at Revelation 21:4, which says, And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Death will be gone forever. May this be of encouragement to the family of Bill Bogle.

    Bill and his wife were good citizens, good Christians and good neighbors when I was growing up in the Pecos Valley. His mother was a good friend of my mother and I recall their many conversations when they met as I waited impatiently as children often do. He was unassuming and kindly and on one occasion gave me some very good advice that proved very helpful. He will be missed by all his friends, neighbors and church but most of all by his family and my thoughts and prayers are with them this week.
