Rocky Mount -
Raymond “Butch” Lee Fogleman, Jr. went home to his Heavenly eternal resting place on April 18, 2022 surrounded by the love of his family.
Raymond “Butch” was a great man! He was a loving, devoted husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin, and friend to many. He was also a proud veteran, having served honorably in the United States Navy as a torpedoman aboard the USS Douglas H. Fox.
In 1967, he returned home and attended a dance and celebration for the soldiers’ return. At this dance, he met the love of his life, Linda J. Randall and on October 21, 1968 they were married and started their long, loving life together. They began building their family and life and spent 54 years together. He worked days, nights, and long hours to provide for his family. He devoted 30 years to North Carolina Natural Gas Company where he held many job titles. He was a well-respected, hard-working man.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Raymond Lee and Clara Summers Fogleman, along with several other family members and friends. Oh, what a glorious homecoming he is having!
