Stephen Edward Fogle

 

Stephen Edward Fogle, 70, walked into the arms of his Heavenly Father on April 7, 2023. He was born in Owensboro, Kentucky on July 25, 1952, to the late Franklin Edward Fogle and Mary Lucille Hayden Fogle Wright. Not only was he met in Heaven by his parents, but also his brother Mark Fogle, stepfather Gilbert Wright, stepbrother James Wright, brothers-in-law Glenn Merritt, Wayne Rhinerson and Bill Clayton, a very special nephew Eric Young and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Steve was a member of Precious Blood Catholic Church, a graduate of the University of Evansville and worked at Swedish Match (Pinkerton Tobacco) as a Production Manager for 40 years.  Steve met his soul-mate Judith Carol Rhinerson, who he loved unconditionally, and they married on May 6, 1972.  Steve and Judy (or “my bride” as Steve referred to her) have three amazing sons, who are the image of their dear dad; Derek Andrew (Danielle), Chad Edward and Brandon Michael (Lauren).  Steve’s greatest joy in life was his family and being a father and grandfather. He had tremendous pride in watching his sons in various sports throughout the years and all their life accomplishments.

Steve enjoyed anything outdoors and spent as much time as possible in his “happy place.”  During retirement, he and Judy spent many hours taking in the beautiful sunsets from their backyard and knocking out their bucket-list adventures. He enjoyed bird hunting and looked forward to taking his sons duck hunting in Arkansas every January, along with his brother-in-law Glenn Merritt and Dan Stallings, whom Steve considered his closest friend. He was the ultimate host and went out of his way to care for others’ needs before his own, and his contributions to the family’s annual barbecue chicken and burgoo events will be greatly missed.

Steve leaves behind two beautiful grandchildren; Ella Daley (who calls him G-Daddy) and Declan Nash (who calls him Boo-Daddy), and he carried the titles proudly. Ella’s many stage performances and musical skills, and her academic achievements were some of his proudest moments. Declan has already amazed him even though he hasn’t quite reached the age of 5 yet. Boo-Daddy spent countless hours playing with him, reading him books, and watching him ride his gator in the backyard. Boo-Daddy just couldn’t get enough of his little man!

Steve was also survived by his siblings David (Michelle) Fogle, Marianne (Mike) Kamuf, Teresa Merritt, and Cathy Bayles; his in-laws Linda (Glen) Falloway, Deanna Clayton, Jim (Anita) Rhinerson, Marcia (Rich) Graves and Stacy (Billy) Render, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins too numerous to mention.

Steve’s celebration of life will start with visitation at Glenn Funeral Home on Wednesday, April 12 from 3 to 7 p.m. with prayers at 6:45 pm. Visitation again on Thursday, April 13 from 10 to 11:30 a.m., followed by Mass at Precious Blood Church at noon. Burial will follow in Pleasant Grove Cemetery.

Memorial contributions may be made to Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer or Norton’s Children Hospital.
