    My driest condolences to the Andresen family. He was a sweet man. I knew him from the Wahoo Coin Club, my grandfather, Vernon “Denny” Hinebaugh was a member of the coin club. Also, my father Don Hogan and my brother D.J. Hogan, who is a current member. I have many fond memories of going to meetings with them. May he Rest In Peace.

    Sharon,
    I was so sorry to hear of Lee’s passing. I will always remember him from our days hunting with the Simonsons in Mullen. It was Lee and Joe that helped me field dress my first deer close to 25 years ago. I just pulled out some old pictures of our hunts in Mullen. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
