Johnny Mack was born October 18, 1946 to Albert L. Hogue and Jessie Mae (Steele) Hogue. He was the youngest of the Hogue's four sons. Johnny Mack served in the United States Marine Corps from 1967 until 1972. He was a Staff Sgt. when he was honorably discharged. Johnny Mack was an illustrator for the Marines during part of his service and served a tour of duty in Vietnam. Upon returning home he established his own sign painting business and painted a little bit of everything in and around Fritch and Hutchinson County. He loved to draw portraits, study the constellations, read up on physics among many other topics, tinker with and repair anything electrical, and often drew amazing art on napkins from the Taylor Store in Fritch. Many people have his artistic treasures to call their own. Johnny Mack touched many lives with his humor and his art. His greatest joy in life was his daughter, Regina and granddaughter, Shawna.

He is survived by his daughter, Regina Rowe of Caldwell, Texas; his granddaughter, Shawna Rowe of Freeport, Texas; brothers, Richard Hogue of Borger, Bobby Hogue of portage, Indiana; seven nieces and nephews; twelve great nieces and nephews; and six great-great nieces and nephews.
If anyone wants to share Johnny Mack's art that he bestowed upon them during his lifetime, please bring it.
Johnny Mack, many good memories over the years. You touched many of a life. You will be glad to know that John H and I have talked about you often over the years while working together. You were always around town and willing to share your knowledge and experiences with me and my friends. God bless you my fellow Jarhead. Semper Fi.

Johnny drew a picture of my late husband. He was a great artist. He never had anything but good things to say about anyone. Pray his family finds comfort with his passing.
