RIP Charlton “Hog” Hogwood, once a crewman for driver Lennie Pond
From Richmond Times-Dispatch staff reports Apr 20, 2018
Longtime crewman’s death mourned.
For many in the NASCAR family, an undertone of sadness accompanied race weekend at Richmond Raceway. Some were learning that Charlton “Hog” Hogwood, once a crewman for driver Lennie Pond, died earlier this month in Arizona, where he had moved.
Mr. Hogwood was 17 when he began working for Pond, ultimately rising to crew chief.
Friends and family will hold a memorial service for Mr. Hogwood at 11 a.m. May 2 at The Heights Baptist Church, 17201 Jefferson Davis Highway in Colonial Heights, just north of Swift Creek Mill Theatre.
Mr. Hogwood, who was 63, lived in Dinwiddie County and was a retired Chesterfield County fire lieutenant before he moved to Arizona.
He was found dead April 10 in a vacant house where he had been doing maintenance work. His death is being investigated as a homicide by the Mesa, Ariz., police department.
