I first met Roy when he knocked on my door in the '90s and asked me to vote for him for Council Member in River Bend. I voted for him and he won, after which I got to know him well by helping him with his computer. I am a year older than Roy and was surprised to hear of his passing. We'll miss him. Nice guy.

I want to express my deepest sympathy for Roys family. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I can only think of how many times I would come and visit Roy in Jones County, he did so much with so little there. He was truly one of NCs most interesting and entertaining people. He always had an opinion and thought about something, I would drive from Raliegh just to talk to him about some of these things, mostly related to economic development. For me, he was fun to be around and learn from. I still have his First Draft of Job Success Facts of Life 101! He will be missed.

This is the most difficult time in our lives we are very close. Our father who became this fiqure of taking care of us has gone to be with the lord. We were always expecting you to leave us one day, but i don't think you are ever prepared for this great time of sadness and the tugging you feel in your heart and thinking what just happen here.My father taught his children and grandchildren to always be the best at all areas of life and didn't judge you if you didn't succeed, but encourage you to keep trying.My father will be missed very much and only time will heal his family, but not completely, because their will always be this empty hole in our hearts and now we lay you down to sleep and rest, but remember we will all be together again one day and your beautiful wife will be taken care of. miss you and love you more , your kids Mike, DeeDee, Linda, Missy

J. Roy was one of my great friends in high school and for the next 64 years. With his death, it only leaves three seniors alive from the Salem, IL 1947 football team.

Bonnie, Roy will be missed by all of us whose lives he touched. I fondly recall my last visit to see Roy a few years ago when I was in New Bern for a workforce development board meeting. We talked for several hours. But the most precious part of the visit was when he presented me with one of his clown paintings. It shares a prominent place in my home; many people ask about it - it will always be cherished. Thanks for sharing Roy with us. He was a true friend and very unique with his thoughts; very progressive & one who did CHANAGE PEOPLE'S LIVES. He will be missed.

J Roy was my uncle; the oldest in my dad's family. He was a great man, who accomplished incredible things in his life. He has always been, and always will be, an inspiration to me. He was loved and respected by virtually all who knew him. With much love and sadness, Rest in Peace uncle J Roy.

He always encouraged me to be the best at whatever I chose to do in my life. The first thing he would always ask me was " how is teaching" till the very last time I saw him. I will always remember him as the mighty man he was that could solve any problem, and give you the best advice he could. He did many great things in his life, but the greatest to me was the simple fact that he was my " papa". Rest in peace Papa I love you.

I have lost a friend and most of all, one of the few mentors I had in my life. I had the honor of working under Roy's tutelage for several years when beginning my civilian career in economic development after retiring from the Marine Corps in 1993. Roy and I shared service as Marines and he always told it straight to me like on Marine to another. Working for Mr. Fogle was an adventure every single day and you always felt challenged. Roy pushed his employees and he empowered us all to excel and do our best. Mr. Fogle was successful at anything he undertook. Roy didn't know how to fail and he didn't like those who didn't mind losing. Roy's professional love was the Neuse River Council of Governments (NRCOG) where I served with him. NRCOG won every award for national excellence available. We were the Council of Government to be emulated by the other 17 some odd other Council's throughout the State of North Carolina. Mr. Fogle was an iconic figure in the field of economic development in North Carolina and in fact, throughout the United States. Today, I mourn the loss of my dear friend and mentor, Junior Roy Fogle. Heaven just got a great man who no doubt will make his presence known to the Lord in short order!

I have known Roy since 1994 when he hired me at the NRCOG. As the Interim Executive Director of that agency which morphed into the Eastern Carolina Council, I recognize and appreciate all Roy tried to do for our nine-county region. He was a visionary. Our sincere condolences to the family on your loss.
