Jim Fogelberg: A man of many gifts and a passion for life

When family and friends list all the things Boulder's Jim Fogelberg enjoyed doing in his free time, it's hard to imagine how he found enough hours in the day to enjoy them all.

"He was a Renaissance man," said his wife, Geni. "He used all sides of his brain, creative, analytical. He could just do it all."

All of the people Fogelberg met in his many adventures mourned Wednesday upon hearing that Fogelberg, 64, was struck and killed Tuesday evening in a collision with a car in Fort Collins where he worked.

A Fairview High and University of Colorado graduate, Fogelberg was a multi-talented man who could do just about whatever he set his mind to, his family said.
