Bryan Roger Fogg was born on January 17th, 1961 in Jackson, Michigan to Arthur and Ruth Fogg. He grew up in the small town of Leslie and helped run the family chicken farm before graduating from Leslie High School in 1979. In 1994, he received his Bachelor's Degree in Accounting at the California State University in Sacramento. After settling down in Iowa, he worked as a controller at AgLeader Technology in Ames before retiring at the end of 2021. Bryan was united in marriage to Linda Sue Tammen on September 29th, 2018 after spending 10 happy years together.
Bryan enjoyed camping with his family and spending time up at their cabin in Bemidji, Minnesota. Many would describe him as a family man with a great sense of humor, and very forgiving. He always looked forward to spending time with his two grandsons who he adored. Bryan and Linda loved traveling together, especially going on motorcycle trips all over the United States. He also enjoyed a nice scotch in the evening.
Bryan is survived by his loving wife, Linda; his children, Josh (Amber) Courter and Kadie Osgood; his grandchildren, Gavin and Landry; his sisters, Jill Barlond and Alice Kokoczka; his brothers, Robert (JoAnn) Fogg and David (Deborah) Fogg; his sisters-in-law, Pat Fogg, Ingrid (Jim) Haase and Dorie Tammen; and his lifelong best friend, Reid Frey. He was preceded in death by his parents, Arthur and Ruth; his brother, Jack Fogg; his nephew, David Sollid; and his brothers-in-law, Everett Barlond and Rick Kokoczka
"I have many fond memories of hanging out with Bryan in about the 3rd grade, we were best friends then. We stayed friends all through high school. A few years ago we reconnected on Facebook, and I really enjoyed his wit and humor, and following his & Linda's adventures traveling around the country on motorcycles. I am truly saddened by his loss. Deepest sympathy to his friends and family, especially to Linda."
"Bryan started at Ag Leader a couple years after I did. He was very friendly and had a good sense of humor. It was always nice to talk to him. I missed him when he retired and was saddened to hear of his passing, way too young. He will be missed. Don Anderson"
Amie and I were heartbroken to learn of Bryan's passing. Most of the best memories of my youth include Bryan. Though we've been separated by time and distance, he always felt like the same steadfast friend whenever we could get together.
I'm so glad that you came into his life Linda. Bryan always seemed happy and contented after he met you.
We will all miss him.
Amie and Dale Pierce"
