  • My heartfelt sympathy to the Hoagland family. I had the distinct pleasure of working at the USDA, ERRC with Peter. He was a great friend and coworker to so many who knew him. He will be terribly missed! Rest in peace my friend.🙏🏾

  • Hi, Jennifer

    I shared an office with Pete Hoagland early in my career at USDA. Although I did not work directly in his research, I did remember his keen interest in many areas of research and his great sense of humor. I was there when he retired, but unfortunately I can’t recall when he retired. I was there when his supervisor was the lead scientist Harry Farrell. I think he had a long life and from your email to USDA, a happy life.

  • Jennifer, I send my deepest condolences for your loss. I collaborated with Peter for a short time at USDA/ARS/ERRC before he retired. He was always kind and helpful to a new person (like me) who had just come to the workplace. I enjoyed working and discussing research projects with him. I do remember his love and knowledge of computers and all things computation-related. I’ll miss his patience and always nuanced ways of thinking about problems. May he rest in peace.

  • Hi Jennifer,

    I am so sorry to hear the loss of your father. Your father was a great mentor! I meet your father when I first start working at USDA as a co-op student. He taught me so much and so forever grateful.

  • Condolences to you and the entire Hoagland family, Jennifer. Our careers overlapped for about 25 years. I was a carbohydrate chemist; Peter was that and so much more. What a nice man he was. You didn’t mention that on top of everything else, Peter once built a harpsicord. Can you imagine that?

  • Dear Jennifer,

    Let me extend my deepest sympathy to you and the family for the loss of your amazing dad. Your dad was possibly my oldest friend on earth. We met at age four in Green Knoll School (where your grandmother also taught). Through the school years we remained friends. Did you know that we costarred in the school’s biannual stage production? Your dad played Hansel to my Gretel. In high school, we went to the junior prom together. Unfortunately after high school we went our separate ways and lost touch with each other. I found your dad again several years ago on classmates.com. And I am grateful for that. Thank you for reaching out to me and for sharing that wonderful obituary. There was so much I didn’t know about.
