Kenneth Martin Fogel, 85, passed away on January 14, 2018, after a brief illness. Born in in Philadelphia, PA, to Kenneth A. and Anna G. (Clonan) Fogel, he was raised by his father and his loving step-mother Dorothy (Tyndall) Fogel. After graduating from New Haven High School, he joined the United States Air Force and served his country for four years, including a deployment in Iceland. He married Eleen C. Kiep of Fort Wayne, on May 4, 1957. In their more than 60 years together, the couple made their home in Fort Wayne and had two children, Daniel and Amanda. They lived life surrounded by friends, family and faith. Kenny was a generous, un-assuming man who made those around him feel welcomed and important. He was a passionate Cubs fan and avid fan of IU basketball. In fact, he may have originated the idea of the ‘man cave’ with a shrine to Bobby Knight in his bathroom more than 25 years ago. He retired from North American Moving and Storage in 1997. Following his retirement, he worked as the night clerk at the Red Roof Inn and briefly as a bartender at Knights of Columbus in Fort Wayne. Kenny was a long-time member of St. Jude Catholic Church and the American Legion and a past member of the Knights of Columbus. Ken is preceded in death by his parents and brother Terry E. Fogel. He survived by his wife, Eleen, son Daniel (Melissa) Fogel, daughter Amanda (John) Sparzo and sisters Debi Williams and Pat Hissong. He is also survived by six grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
