Uncle Foster was always one of my favorite uncles when I was growing up. I remember he gave me my first ride on his full dresser Harley Davidson when I was around 8. He was a good man and he'll be missed.

Foster was an amazing man and will greatly missed. He drove a truck for us for over 6 years and we could always count on him to reliable and a man of his word. He was soft spoken and I enjoyed talking to him. I spoke to him right before the accident and I am very sad that he is gone.

We are so sorry to hear of Foster's passing.  The Ross family have always loved the Jones family, our mothers were sisters, and the kids first cousins.  We grew up with our families living side by side, we were always close growing up. With deep sorrow, I will miss Foster very much, but we shall meet again.    Love to all, Ross Family
