CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) - Services are set for the former longtime police chief in the southern Illinois city of Carbondale.

Meredith Funeral Home says Ed Hogan of Carbondale was 91 when he died Thursday at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Marion.

Hogan spent a quarter century with the St. Louis Police Department before moving in 1971 to Carbondale. That's where the Navy veteran of World War II served as police chief from the late 1970s until retiring in 1991.

Visitation for Hogan will be from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday at Meredith Funeral Home.

A funeral Mass will be at 11 a.m. Wednesday at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church of Carbondale. Burial will be at a later date in Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery near St. Louis.
