Roy G. Foster, a beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, and friend, passed away on February 4th, 2024 in Hot Springs. He was born on January 2nd, 1936 in Maysville, Oklahoma to Harvey Issac Foster and Bessie Curry-Foster.
He was preceded in death by two twin daughters; Cathy Lara Foster, and Carla Kay Foster. He was also preceded in death by four brothers and five sisters; JD Foster, Bill Foster, Pat Foster, and Pete Foster, Irene Tabor, Bonnie Counts, Ruth Breakfield, Darlene Teauge, and Maxine Barkman.
Roy had an impressive career as a routeman for Earle Gill Vending for 32 years. Roy's commitment to his job was evident through his many years of service. Outside of work, Roy had a passion for gardening. He kept a large vegetable garden and took great pleasure in tending to it, often gifting his harvest to family and friends. Roy was a very outgoing individual who had an infectious personality. He had a natural ability to connect with people and his family meant the world to him. Roy was a true family man who always went above and beyond to ensure their happiness and well-being. During his younger years, Roy served in the navy for seven years from 1954 through 1962. Faith played a significant role in his life, and he dedicated himself to sharing his beliefs with others. He was also a minister at the Assembly of God.
Roy will be dearly missed by his surviving family members; his loving wife of 61 years, Laura B. Foster; his beloved sons, Allen Foster, Randy Foster, and Roger Foster, as well as five grandchildren and six great grandchildren.
There will be a memorial service at a later date.
