Marion, Arkansas. He died peacefully surrounded by his family at Crittenden Memorial Hospital in West Memphis on September 17, 2012. He was proud to be one of thirteen (13) to graduate from Marion High School in 1937. After graduation, Julian attended the University of Arkansas where he was a member of Sigma Chi Fraternity. In 1941 he graduated with a B.S.B.A. He then attended the University of Arkansas School of Law graduating in 1943 with a Bachelor of Laws degree. Following graduation from law school, he volunteered for service to his country in the United States Army. Despite being rejected for being blind in one eye and missing his right thumb, he persisted and was ultimately admitted to service in the United States Army Infantry, where he served in Europe attaining the rank of Master Sergeant. After WWII, he returned to Marion where he began the practice of law, later joining his brother, John, in the Hale and Fogleman Law Firm. The firm later became Hale, Fogleman and Rogers. He was licensed to practice law in a long and distinguished legal career spanning over 60 years. He was very active in the Arkansas Bar Association, serving on its House of Delegates for over 40 years and the Executive Counsel for 6 years. Over the years he was a member of 17 different committees, serving as chair or vice chair on many of them. He was a past president of the Northeast Arkansas and Crittenden County Bar Associations. He was a Fellow of the Arkansas Bar Foundation for over 40 years and served on its Board of Directors. In 1996 Julian was honored by the Arkansas Bar Foundation by bestowing upon him its “Outstanding Lawyer Citizen Award”. He was appointed by the Governor to the Good Roads Counsel, The Commission on Community Based Rehabilitation and twice as a Special Associate Justice to the Arkansas Supreme Court. Julian Fogleman was also committed to public service serving as a Deputy Prosecuting Attorney for Crittenden County for 7 years, the City Recorder for the City of Marion, and the elected City Attorney for Marion for 31 years. He also served on the Crittenden County Board of Education and the board of Crittenden County Charities, Inc. In 2008, the Marion Chamber of Commerce named him its “Citizen of the Year.” He was an active member in the Marion Rotary Club with over 40 years of perfect attendance and was named by Rotary International as a Paul Harris Fellow. Julian was an active member of the Marion United Methodist Church for his entire life serving in too many capacities to name but was especially proud of his role as chairman of the building committee and his love of singing in the choir. On August 11, 1950, Julian married Melba Margaret Henderson. He was preceded in death by his brothers, Justice John A. Fogleman of Little Rock and Frank G. Fogleman of Marion, and his sister, Mamie Fogleman Stokes of Marion, Arkansas. He is survived by his loving wife of 62 years, Margaret Henderson Fogleman; their five children, Lisa Fogleman Heath and her husband John of Marion, Arkansas; J. Barton Fogleman, Jr. and his wife Jeanne of Jonesboro, Arkansas; Judge John N. Fogleman and his wife, Nancy of Marion, Arkansas; Jennifer Fogleman Brown and her husband, Paul of Atlanta, Georgia; and Frances Fogleman Irwin of Escalon, California; 11 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
