Raymond A. Foster

Raymond A. Foster, age 78, lifelong resident of Ai, Ohio, passed away Tuesday morning, October 5, 2021 at Hospice of Northwest Ohio in Toledo. He was born August 17, 1943 in Ai to Victor and Emma June (Fryock) Foster. He married Linda Lou Christy on June 8, 1964. She preceded him in death on February 24, 2018.

Ray was drawn to anything with speed and would give off a lot of noise. He loved riding motorcycles, going to antique car shows, and owning and working on Sprint Cars.

Ray is survived by his daughters, Janet (Les) Hunt and Laurie (Nate) Leathers; son, Michael Foster; 8 grandchildren, and 12 great-grandchildren; sisters and brothers-in-law, Rose Marie Foster, Dorothy Smallman, Ellen (Bob) Junk and Norman (Judy) Christy; and many nieces and nephews.

Besides his beloved wife, Linda, Ray is preceded in death by his parents; brother, Jim Foster and brother-in-law, John Smallman.

Visitation will be held Saturday, October 9th from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Weigel Funeral Home in Swanton, where funeral services will begin at 2:00 p.m., with Pastor George Shaver officiating. Interment will follow at Dutch Ridge Cemetery.

Memorial contributions may be directed to the family.

Our entire Fyock is very sorry to hear about the loss of your Dad. I remember your parents visiting Frances Fyock (my Grandma) here in Toledo. My Dad John Fyock was cousins with your Dad. He passed away in 2019. My Uncle Bob Fyock passed away also that year.
Just trying to connect the dots.... We would be 2nd cousins to your Dad & 3rd cousins to your family. Again, so very sorry.
Love from all of us.
