Broude, Alan Lee

Alan Lee Broude, 73, of Boca Raton, Florida, peacefully passed away in his sleep Thursday, September 14, 2017 in Louisville, Kentucky with his wife of 20 years, Kathy, by his side. Alan was born October 22, 1943 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to deaf parents dealing positively with his first obstacle in life. Alan was a high school quarterback and a regular on American Bandstand where he was known as “Alan from Northeast Philly.” He graduated from Temple University with a degree in Accounting. A self-proclaimed “Numbers Guy,” Alan was the CFO for the University of Kentucky Hospital in Lexington prior to joining Jewish Hospital HealthCare Services where he worked for 30 years until his retirement as the CFO and Senior Vice President. He was considered by his colleagues as one of the brightest people in health care finance. After retirement, Alan turned to year round golf in Boca Grove.

He served in leadership capacities for several national professional and civic organizations including Family & Children’s Counseling Center (aka Family & Children’s Place), Jewish Federation Foundation of Louisville and the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation. He was also a member of the “Hole in One” Club at Boca Grove.

Alan had a passion for life, especially for golf and dancing. He loved time with family and his wonderful community of friends in Louisville and Boca Grove. In retirement, he used his financial expertise to Chair the Boca Grove Finance Committee. In addition to playing golf, he enjoyed watching his beloved Louisville Cardinals, building Legos and puzzles with his grandchildren, and traveling to his favorite spot in Carmel, California with Kathy and friends. He was always available to assist those needing his help. Alan will be remembered for his integrity, humor, kindness, gentleness and compassion as much as his friendly smile.

Alan is survived by his wife Kathy; sons Derek Broude and Kyle Pressma; stepsons Reed Montgomery (Heather Montgomery) and Kerry Montgomery and grandchildren Schuyler Broude, Samuel Broude, Ryder Montgomery and Hudson Montgomery. He was preceded in death by his daughter, Stefan Broude, and his parents, Samuel and Reba Broude.

Cogan, Carroll Fulton

Carroll Fulton Cogan died peacefully in his sleep at home at the age of 90 on September 7, 2017. He leaves behind a large and loving family. He is survived by his wife of 64 years, Doris Cogan, their nine children, as well as 26 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren who lovingly called him “Papa.”

Mr. Cogan was born on June 4, 1927 in Biloxi, Mississippi. At the age of 17, he enlisted in the Navy and through the officer’s training education program attended Texas A&M University where he graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. He continued to serve his country in the United States Army and by good fortune he was stationed at Fort Knox, Kentucky. It is in Kentucky where he met his bride to be, Doris Fallon, who he quickly became smitten with and determined he wanted to marry.

After getting married in Louisville, the couple moved to Houston, Texas where Mr. Cogan worked for Shell Oil and they had their first of nine children, Martin. But Carroll knew his wife always wanted to return to her hometown of Louisville, so he worked on obtaining a position with Andriot-Davidson, Co. He and Mr. Davidson became immediate friends and eventually Mr. Cogan bought the company from Mr. Davidson and grew it into a successful Mechanical Engineering firm. He sold it in the early 90s when he retired.

Mr. Cogan’s greatest joy and love in life was being with his family. Mrs. Cogan says of her late husband that he was “always a good Daddy and a good husband.” During their many years together he always brought her a cup of coffee each morning. Mr. Cogan was an avid walker and could often be seen strolling through the Highlands neighborhood and the beaches of Siesta Key, Florida, where the family later spent a lot of time and made precious memories together. He also had a big interest in cars, a hobby he passed on to his sons and grandsons. His trademark look was a pair of cowboy boots, which he loved collecting, and then in later years sharing them with his children and grandchildren.

Mr. Cogan and his wife were two of the original members of St. Pius X Catholic Church and then joined Saint Raphael the Archangel the weekend his ninth child was born. He and his wife were enthusiastic benefactors of many charities in the Louisville area, especially the Catholic Church and education and children-focused nonprofits.

Mr. Cogan is preceded in death by his parents (Annie and Stanley Cogan) and his brother Stanley William Cogan. He leaves behind his wife of 64 years, Doris Cogan, and his children: Martin Cogan (Dr. Nonie George), Constance Cogan Spalding (Wallace), Kevin Cogan (Antoinette), Christopher Cogan (Aimee), Kelly Cogan Krampe (James), Kathleen “Kitty” Cogan Pfeiffer (Kelly), Courtney Cogan Brooks (Keith), Kendall Cogan (Shannon), Curtiss Cogan (Kallie); grandchildren Kathleen Cogan, Olivia Cogan, Cynthia Spalding Knapek (Mark), Chris Spalding (Beth), Stewart Spalding, Shawn Spalding (Allie), Stephanie Spalding Bilbrey (Ryan), Sabrina Spalding, Candace Cogan, Collins Cogan, Caroline Cogan Eromo (Ersno), Connor Cogan, Caragh Bella Cogan, Collette Krampe, Clayton Krampe, Kendall Krampe, Patrick Pfeiffer, Fallon Pfeiffer, Corrie Pfeiffer, Cogan Brooks, Blythe Brooks, Colton Cogan, Caden Cogan, Cienna Cogan, Christian Cogan, and 13 great grandchildren; Tyler and Trevor Knapek, Cullen, Hayden, Caroline, Lillian, Lachlynn, Layton, and Amelia Spalding, Ellie Anne Pfeiffer, Hudson, Collins and Elliana Eromo.

Mr. Cogan’s funeral mass was held on Tuesday, September 12 at 10 a.m. at Holy Spirit Catholic Church, 3345 Lexington Rd. Louisville, KY 40206. Burial followed in Calvary Cemetery.
