Obituary of Terry Eugene Foster

Terry E. Foster, age 84, of Cherry Hill, went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on June 24, 2017. Terry will be remembered for his love of family and friends, telling a good story, and lots of laughter. He was a Korean War Veteran, having served in Japan as a cryptographer, where he once met and spoke with General Curtis Le May while on duty. Terry was in the business world for many years as an executive and director. Terry worked for Spiegel, Inc. in Chicago and came to Philadelphia to set up its first operation in this area. He went on to work at Basco, starting up "Tele-Mail," at the time, a new way for customers to order merchandise. An exacting boss, but natural mentor, he made coming to work interesting and fun. His working years ended when he retired from Memorex, Inc. in King of Prussia, PA. In his retirement, he pursued his love of gardening and became a Master Gardener with the Rutgers University Cooperative and worked as a volunteer for the program. He was also a hunter and fisherman, and loved to play golf. Terry is survived by his beloved wife of 40 years, Barbara (nee Clark), and his loving children, Sherri (Dave) Yarnall and Bruce (Argie) Foster, cherished grandsons, Zachary, Devin, and Caleb Yarnall, his beloved sister Fran Hedblade, father-in-law Bill Longacre, mother-in-law Grace Clark, sisters-in-law, Grace Lomaistro and Sheree Ginaldi, former wife Judith Pascale Foster, and many nieces and nephews.
