Father of Anna Nicole Smith Passes Away

by at . Comments

Anything associated with Anna Nicole Smith is doomed this week.

First, Howard K. Stern, Dr. Khristine Eroshevich and Dr. Sandeep Kapoor were all arraigned on felony charges in the 2007 death of the Playboy Playmate.

Then, the late model's father, Donald Hogan, died after a long battle with lung cancer, according to daughter and Smith's half-sister, Amy Chapman Hogan.

Donald "had a lump in his chest that kept giving him a lot of pain. But for some reason the X-rays didn't find it. By the time the doctors diagnosed he was in the last stages of lung cancer," Amy recalled to E! News today.

The 62-year-old, who loudly blamed Howard K. Stern for his daughter's death, refused treatment and spent three weeks in hospice before passing away.

"He just wanted to go home," Hogan said. "We just buried him on Tuesday."

"It's been a tough week."

Anna Nicole Smith's Dad

Donald Hogan did not live long enough to see Howard K. Stern charged.

Unfortunately, despite repeat attempts, Hogan said her father never got to see granddaughter Dannielynn, now in the care of Larry Birkhead, before he died.

She says the family tried to contact Birkhead several times to no avail. As it is, it's not the only event Hogan wishes her dad had been able to witness.

As for the handful of new felonies Stern and Smith's doctors were slapped with yesterday, she said, "Dad would have been really happy about that."

He's far from alone in that regard.


Donald Hogan raped a girl aged 13. He was in prison for rape.
