WILMINGTON — Slocum Hatch “Jim” Fogleman Jr., 95, passed away Monday, Aug. 2, 2021. He was born the eldest child of Slocum Hatch and Mildred Lashley Fogleman in Liberty and was preceded in death by siblings, Rebecca F. Garner and Joseph B. Fogleman. He is survived by his sister, Sarah F. Grant of Asheboro.
After graduating from Liberty High School, Jim enlisted in the U.S. Army and served in the Philippines and Japan. In 1950, he graduated from NCSU as an industrial engineer and worked in the textile industry with Kayser Roth Hosiery Co. and Jockey International in Burlington. When Jim retired to the Wilmington area, he enjoyed fishing, golfing and involvement in his church. He participated in bible study and embarked on mission trips to disaster areas in the U.S.
Jim counted his family as his greatest fortune and treasured family gatherings, especially when he presided over oyster roasts and fish fries. He loved his canines, Buddy, Katie and Bonnie, and was always available to lend a helping hand. Jim was a tender, devoted husband and a loving, exemplary father and grandfather. His life of deep and abiding faith was full and complete, and he is already missed.
He is survived by his wife, Patricia B. Fogleman of the home; and four children, Kathi Fogleman of Southport; S.H. “Jim” Fogleman III (Mary Edna) of Raleigh, David Fogleman (Marty) of Wilmington and Scott Fogleman (Tami) of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. He was blessed with six grandchildren, Will Fogleman (Morgan) of Richmond, Virginia, Alex Fogleman (Molly) of Waco, Texas, Rob Fogleman (Laura) of Charlotte, Lauren Fogleman of Lumberton, Jordan Floyd of Queens, New York, and Bradley Fogleman (Elizabeth) of Lumberton. He adored seven great-grandchildren, James, Thomas, William, Eleanor, Arden, Austin and Knox.
The family will receive friends at 10 a.m., Saturday, Aug. 7, at Andrews Mortuary Market Street. A service, led by Jim’s grandson, Alex, will follow at 11 a.m. at the chapel.
The family is grateful for the consummate, compassionate care of Dr. Leo Warshauer and staff, and to the providers and caregivers of NHRMC, Lower Cape Fear LifeCare and the Davis Community.
