Born in Detroit on June 15, 1927, the son of Harry and Maude (Bupp) Fogle, Roy graduated from Milford High School in 1945.

to the General Motors Proving Grounds where he worked until his retirement in 1982.

Roy was an active, long time member of the Union Lake Baptist Church. He was also active in the community, serving with many associations, which included the Walled Lake School Board.
