Born Sept. 21, 1922 in the Los Angeles area, Mr. Foster enlisted in the United States Navy in 1942 and was commissioned as a lieutenant in 1944 during World War II. He was honorably discharged in 1946.

Mr. Foster retired from McDonnell-Douglas Aircraft in 1977 after many years of exemplary service.

After retirement he lived for many years on the coast of Mexico until ill health forced him to move to the Gilroy area in 1998. For many years he was an avid reader and fantastic trumpet player.

He leaves behind his devoted wife Margaret of 45 years. He is survived by his daughters, Kathleen Smith of San Juan Bautista, Judy Tarbuck, Carol List, Cathy and Diane Foster; 13 grandchildren; and 13 great-grandchildren.

Special thanks goes out to Gilroy Healthcare and Rehabilitation center’s staff, Respiratory Therapist Lester, Dr. Green, RN’s and CNA’s Julio, Carmen, Vanessa, and the countless others that cared for and loved Mr. Foster over the past several years.

He requested no services be held.

Remembrances may be made in his name to the American Lung Association.
