Louis Henry Fogleman, Jr., 84, of Raleigh, NC, passed away on Tuesday, May 30th at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, NC.
Born on September 29, 1938 in Wadesboro, North Carolina, the only child of Louis Henry Fogleman and Jennings Ross Fogleman, Louis graduated from Anson High School in 1956 and received a bachelor’s degree from Davidson College in 1960, where he was a member of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity. He went on to obtain his Bachelor of Laws (LL.B) from the University of North Carolina School of Law in 1964. After law school he moved to Charlotte, NC, where he eventually met his wife, Anne Dickson Fogleman. They were married on February 13, 1971 in Raeford, NC, Anne’s hometown, and then resided in Greensboro, NC, where their first two boys were born. They moved to Fayetteville, NC in 1979, so Louis could help run his father-in-law Paul Dickson’s newspaper and printing business. After spending most of his career as President of Dickson Press, Inc., Louis went back into the practice of law in 1996 and spent the final years of his career practicing with his colleagues and friends, John Shaw, Dougald Clark and Billy Clark. Louis and Anne spent their retirement years in Chapel Hill, NC before relocating to the Cypress of Raleigh in Raleigh, NC in 2018.
Louis was a member of University Presbyterian Church in Chapel Hill, NC and an Elder within the Presbyterian Church. He was a devoted and caring father, husband, grandfather, brother-in-law, uncle and friend. More than anything else, Louis adored his family and spending time with them at their house on Topsail Beach, NC, where he enjoyed many beautiful sunsets. He had a great sense of the importance of education and life-long learning, which he instilled in his children, and was a selfless provider for his family.
Louis is survived by his wife of 52 years, Anne, and three sons, Louis Henry Fogleman, III (Carter) of Hampstead, NC, Ross Dickson Fogleman of Dallas, TX and Paul McEachern Fogleman (Elizabeth) of Raleigh, NC. He is also survived by his grandchildren, Eliza, Drew, Charlotte and George, and brother-in-law, Robert Arthur Dickson (Victoria), nieces, Margaret Dickson (Eric Roehrig) and Susan Dickson (Jamie DeGraw), as well as great-nieces and nephews and numerous cousins who were like his brothers and sisters, and adopted cousins from Anne’s family. Everyone will miss his dry wit and affectionate teasing.
