Gov. Larry Hogan has postponed his schedule after his father, former Rep. Larry Hogan Sr., suffered a massive stroke, the governor’s office has confirmed.

At 10:24 p.m. Thursday, Gov. Hogan shared that his father passed away saying that "he had an amazing life that spanned 88 years."

A Hogan spokesman said Thursday that the elder Hogan fell ill Saturday. Doug Mayer says Lawrence Hogan lived in Frederick.

ABC7’s Brad Bell reported Thursday that Hogan Sr. has taken a turn for the worse and the governor is at his father’s side.

Hogan Sr. was a congressman from Maryland from 1969 to 1975. He was the only Republican on the House Judiciary Committee to vote for all articles of impeachment against then-President Richard Nixon, a fact Governor Larry Hogan Jr would mention during his snowy inaugural address three years ago.

His son wrote in his father on his 2016 presidential ballot after saying he was disappointed in the candidates from both major parties. At the time, Mayer said the governor therefore decided to write in the name of the person who taught him what it meant to hold public office with integrity.
