During his life, he has been attached to Theatre Echo; he was attached to Aoni Production at the time of his death. He also served as guitarist for the band Slapstick, which he formed in 1977 with fellow voice actors Toru Furuya and Toshio Furukawa.

On December 31, 2000, Sogabe retired from voice acting when he felt a weakness in his own voice. After his retirement, many of his current roles went to voice actors Tetsu Inada and Ryotaro Okiayu. Sogabe, however, was active in 2005, but died on September 17, 2006 at around 8 PM from esophageal cancer, with which he had been diagnosed two months before.[citation needed] He was 58 years old.
