Obituary for James Allen Hogel

August 29, 1963 - April 12, 2021
McHenry, Illinois | Age 57


James Allen Hogel of McHenry, age 57, passed away unexpectedly on Monday April 12, 2021 at his home. Jim was born August 29, 1963 in Oak Park, Illinois, the son of Joseph and Marlene (Olas) Hogel. On February 19, 2000, Jim married the love of his life, Tracie Svihula.

Jim was the owner of Tyler Cole Builders, a general contracting company specializing in remodels and additions, which he founded in 2001. Along with running a successful business, Jim loved spending time with his family, being outdoors at his Wisconsin property, travelling to different places like Costa Rica, and working out at his local gym – Fitness 120. Jim considered his biggest accomplishment to be his three children; no matter how busy life got he would always make time to support them in whatever they were doing.

Jim is survived by his loving wife, Tracie Hogel of McHenry; children: Tyler, Madison, and Julia Hogel, all of McHenry; his father, Joe Hogel; brothers: Joe (Judy) Hogel of Woodstock, Steve (Kim) Hogel of McHenry, and Scott Hogel of Algonquin; and mother-in-law, Laura Svihula. Jim was preceded in death by his mother, Marlene Hogel, and father-in-law, Walter Svihula.

Visitation for Jim will be held on Monday April 19, 2021 from 3-7 P.M. at Colonial Funeral Home – 591 Ridgeview Drive, McHenry. A Funeral Mass will be said on Tuesday April 20, 2021 at 10:30 A.M. at Church of The Holy Apostles – 5211 W. Bull Valley Road, McHenry. Interment will follow in Holy Apostles Cemetery.
