Harold "Red" Wayne Foster passed away on December 20, 2016 after a long illness. Red left us too early but his life was filled with fun, laughter and memorable moments he shared with friends and loved ones.
Born in Dallas, December 26, 1947, he grew up in the Oak Cliff area but frequently visited his ancestral home in Llano, TX. His youth included such tales as working as an usher at the Majestic Theater, attending concerts and parties in downtown Dallas and school breaks spent in the Hill Country.
He enlisted in the Army during the Vietnam War and served on a missile base on Okinawa, Japan. During this time he courted and fell in love with Janie Grey Partridge from Dallas, TX and the two were married in December 1968. They lived in El Paso, TX for the rest of his tour.
In 1973 they made their home in Mesquite, TX. In that beautiful little home they raised two daughters and filled it with great memories which always included good food, good friends, great music, and shooting pool in the garage.
Truck driver by trade, Red was a faithful employee of Merchants Fast Motor Lines. He enjoyed the open road and frequently talked about the places and people he met in his travels. Red loved a new restaurant discovery on the road and took the family on vacations to share his discoveries.
Red enjoyed the company of his friends, sharing a friendly game of poker, a trip to the racetrack or a quick trip to Shreveport. Never about the sport but always about the company. He was a loving husband, father, brother and a loyal friend that will be missed by all those who knew him.
He is survived by daughters Lisa Foster of Dallas and Cindy Foster Slinker and her husband John of Fort Worth; sister Martha Gibson of Tool, TX; sister-in-law Selina Naylor of Haslet, TX; nephew Ronnie Brennan, wife Liza and children Savanah and Nicholas; and niece Joan Gibson, both of Dallas, TX; and countless close friends, neighbors, and associates.
