David Ogg departed this life surrounded by his family at his home in Green Valley, AZ. He was under hospice care during a short battle with cancer.
His parents Donald and Carolyn Ogg raised two sons in Kellogg, Iowa where Dave attended public school , graduating in 1958 and then attended Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa where he met and married Sue Vander Linden of Pleasantville, Iowa. They were married 55 years at the time of his passing.
His career as an Insurance Broker of Group Health Benefits for Small Business was spent in the Kansas Ciity area. They lived in Overland Park, KS where they raised their three sons. As young boys they all learned to appreciate the values their Dad taught them about being good citizens, always guiding them in all their activities in sports and to respect the environment when camping, fishing and hunting. What they learned would always help them when they in turn became fathers. Dave had immense pride in all their achievements in life. His last days were spent with them at his side and he left this world knowing their love. He will be greatly missed by his family and all who knew him.
Retiring at a young age, Dave and Sue moved to the Lake of the Ozarks in 1996 where they met many new friends while enjoying the Lake lifestyle of golfing, boating, hunting and fishing. They also began RVing and spent more than 15 years wintering in Green Valley, AZ, buying their first home there in 2004. They decided to move there full-time in 2015 and make it their permanent home.
Dave is survived by his wife, Sue and their three sons, Tim (Misty) Ogg and their two children, Adyson and Garrett of Tuttle, OK, Jeffrey (Susann) Ogg and their three daughters, Peri, Andie and Lily of Prairie Village, KS, and Scott Ogg and his two daughters, Rivers and Rylee of Keller, TX. He is also survived by one aunt, a sister-in-law and many cousins,nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents and his only brother, James Wesley Ogg.
The family wishes to thank Hospice for their loving care during his last days, and for all the condolences and expressions of sympathy extended to us by friends and family from far and wide.
