I am at a loss fro words, Doc was such an amazing, giving, loving man. I trusted him as my dentist since 1976 until he retired. I always loved his tales of his most recent sailing trip, his eyes would sparkle as he discussed his adventure. His smile will be missed by so many. To his family I am sending my prayers and healing thoughts.

Dear Anita, Gail, and Foster family, I and my late husband, and both of my girls were long time patients of Dr. Foster. I remember how very gentle he was and how Anita was just the best at keeping us at ease while her husband worked on people's teeth. My girls also started going to him at a very young age and they were never afraid of going to the dentist because of this wonderful "family" practice. I am sending my heartfelt condolences to everyone - he will be so missed but now is with his Lord and Saviour. May you all find peace in the knowledge that he now with his Father and in peace. Gale & Mike Petroski, Tracy Lindblad Layne, and Kristina Lindblad Jensen. May God Bless.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Doc was my Dentist for over twenty years. We talked about many things that just about always lead back to sailing> He loved He loved his wife, his work and his Boat I am not sure that these are in order. He always had a smile on his face and was a joy to have him as a friend. I met Doc and Anita at their Church and will always remember how they welcomed me there.

Being an advisor to Doc and Anita has been a privilege and an honor. Through the years I have become friends with his daughters snd grand children. Never did I go by the office than as soon as he was done with his patient Doc would come into the office with a big dmile, a hand shake and a hug and ask how I was doing. But his favorite time together was talking about his sailing ventures. And much as I love powerboats, he always tried to convert me. He will certainly be missed. And I offer special condolences for the rest of his family. Cherish the moments and times with Doc. he was a very special person, and a deeply missed friend. God Bless.
