Tom Foster

Thomas H. Foster 1952 ~ 2005 The Foster family is heartbroken to announce the death of Tom Foster. Tom died of a heart attack at home in Chicago, Ill. on February 2, 2005. He was born April 11, 1952 in Ogden, Utah to Elizabeth Brown Foster and Harry Nicholas Foster; the youngest of four children. He was preceded in death by his parents, and some very special uncles, aunts and cousins. Tom is survived by and will be greatly missed by his two sons, James and Zachery Foster of Salt Lake; his wife, Colleen Rosvall Foster of Chicago; her children, Jason and Traci Rosvall and step-grandchildren, Jacob and Olivia Rosvall. He is also survived by his brothers, Lynn (Jane) of Houston, TX; Jerry (Brigitte) of Salt Lake City; his sister, Betty Foster of Salt Lake. He will also be missed by a host of cousins, nephews and a niece who shared his Scottish heritage which he was so proud; and his first wife and the mother of his children, Carolyn (Kevin) of Salt Lake City. Very special in Tom's life were his lifetime friends, Frank, Bill, Mark, Larry, Ray, Kevin, Brent and other good friends. Tom's accomplishments in life were many including obtaining his pilot's license, 30 years of experience in the airline industry starting as an Air Ambulance co-pilot, surveillance of power lines from the air for UPL; a dispatcher for Frontier Airlines in Denver, Colorado and currently was a dispatcher for United Airlines in Chicago, Ill. Tom was an accomplished fly fisherman and these career and recreational accomplishments gained Tom great respect from Airline Management as well as expert Fishing Guides from Utah to New Zealand. He enjoyed so many things in his life; most of all spending time with his sons, James and Zach. He was so proud of them, always concerned about them and loved them dearly. The boys will always cherish the time they spent with their dad fishing in Alaska and Utah, playing pool, reunions in Wyoming, rooting for the Broncos, and good Sunday dinners. His brothers, Jerry and Lynn, nephews Jason and David and cousin Neil, and his friends will fondly remember the time spent with Tom fishing and hunting in Utah and Wyoming. Also, what a great time his family and friends had golfing with Tom. Your family loved you so much Tom and we are going to miss you forever. You have finally found the peace you so richly deserve. Thanks for two great kids; tell Mom how much we miss her and may you now Rest in Peace Forever. A celebration of Tom's life will take place at a later date.
