HAROLD "SKEETER" FOGELMAN

It is with great sadness that the family of Harold S. Fogelman, Sr., known to everyone as "Skeeter", announces his passing on May 24, 2018 at the young age of 65. He lost a courageous fight against Myelodysplastic Syndrome which progressed to leukemia(AML).

Skeeter spent most of his life in Wilmington, DE and attended Brandywine High School and began his long career as a truck driver for 42 years, first for his father's trucking company Fogelman Trucking Co., then he went on to drive for multiple trucking companies including Airco, PepsiCO, Burris, and most recently Cundari Trucking in Philadelphia, PA where he hauled mail as a sub contractor for the USPS. Skeeter drove an 18 wheeler millions of miles without a single accident in his career. He started a landscaping company "Fogelman Lawn Service" which he passed on to his son Stephen. He enjoyed fishing, barbecuing, steaming Maryland blue crabs, renovating and landscaping.

Skeeter will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 43 years Kathryn, known as "Kitty", his two sons Stephen and Travis (Gabrielle), his granddaughters Brianna (Mark) and Trinity, his brothers Paul and Brian(Jackie), his sisters Carolyn and Susan, and his mother Dorothy, known as "Mammy", his best friend Bernie Denney (Teresa) as well as his numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and his dogs "Lucy" and "Cutie".

A Memorial Service will be held on Friday June 1, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Mary Magdalen Catholic Church, Sharpley Rd and Concord Pike, Wilmington, DE 19803 with a celebration of his life to be held afterwards at the Fraternal Order of Eagles Club at 415 Philadelphia Pike 19809.

In lieu of flowers, the Fogelman family ask that donations of whole blood or platelets be donated to the Blood Bank of DE or donate stem cells to" Be The Match Foundation." For those who cannot donate for health reasons, a charitable donation may be made to the Helen Graham Cancer Center in his memory.
