October 15, 1939 - September 25, 2021
Jimmy Fogel, age 81, lifelong Minneapolis resident, homeroom 307, passed away on Saturday, September 25, 2021. He was preceded in death by his parents, Louis and Dolly Fogel; sister, Barbara Livon; former wife, Barbara Fogel; and dogs, Jakie, Tom and Jerry. Survived by his beloved wife, Tash; his sister, Pat (Brent); children, Denise (Paul), Angie (Harry), Jonas, Jen (Arik), Amy Jo (Tim), Christian, Alexis, Mia and Kyli; grandchildren, Hannah, Louis, Ian, Reggie, Eli, and Ethan; special nephew, Cory; former wife, Pam (Miles); and many cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends. Jimmy lived the life he wanted. A consummate businessman, self-named "The House Doctor," and referred to as “The Legend” by colleagues in real estate. He was dedicated to his work and helping others learn the real estate business. His best advice was to “never assume anything but a mortgage.” Jimmy took dressing for success seriously. He was well known for his extensive bow tie and sock collection, he loved a new car or watch, and it gave him great joy to negotiate a deal. He loved to travel, tell a good story or "dad joke" and play pranks. He had a sense of adventure that sent him to serve in the US Navy, jump out of an airplane, trek the Machu Picchu trail, and go parasailing. He rarely went anywhere without running into someone he knew, from the State Fair to Scottsdale, Europe and beyond. He loved to grill, spend time with family and eat a meal at the kitchen sink. Jimmy also took great pride in his 44 plus years of sobriety. Funeral service 2:30 pm, THURSDAY, September 30th, at TEMPLE ISRAEL, 2323 Fremont Ave. So., Minneapolis. SHIVA will take place at Temple Israel on the same day, Thursday, September 30th at 7 PM. Please note that for both the funeral and Shiva, masks and social distancing guidelines will be required.
