Hubert P Foster

Foster, Hubert P. (Jack)

With profound sadness we announce the passing of our father on August 11, 2004 after a valiant battle with kidney disease.

Born and raised in Frankford, Ontario, he joined the Hastings-Prince Edward Regiment in 1939 to fight overseas in WWII. His career in the RCAF brought him to this valley where he retired in 1969. He then became a projectionist for the E.W. Bickle Theatre and later one of the first Courtenay letter carriers.

He led an active life. Early hockey, baseball, and fishing interests were replaced by bowling, curling, square dancing and lawn bowling clubs. He was a regular on the golf course and at the pool tables in the Filberg Centre.

Predeceased by his wife of 42 years, Grace, he will be sorely missed by his daughters: Helen Foster, Linda (Gary) Foster-Willis, Donna (Wayne) Turner, and his grandchildren: Erin, Dallyn, Ryan and Callum. He will be remembered for his strength of character and missed for his quiet wisdom and the immeasurable love he shared with his family.

A Memorial Service will be held August 21st at 1:00 pm at Piercy’s Funeral Home with refreshments following in the Evergreen Lounge at the Filberg Centre. No flowers please. Donations to Cancer or Kidney Research in Hubert (Jack’s) name would be welcome.
