  1. Our sincere condolences to the Foster/Dupuis family. We can’t tell you how much it was appreciated to have known this wise man. Especially to have shared our not known, last moments with Bob and his family this past summer at there AuGres home! Our family even extended our 4th of July vacation there because Bob and Jeanne were so inviting/welcoming. Thank you and God Bless,
    LaVigne Family

  2. We are so sorry to hear of Bob’s death. We have many times thought of him and the great times we had in the past. It has been a few years since we have talked to him but his memory always lives on. Our condolences go out to Jeanne, Rex and Kate and his whole family. I will always remember our trip to Arizona and California. I will also cherish the fishing trips that we had as well as all the racquetball matches that we played at an earlier age.

  3. Thank you for your direct service to the young people of Saginaw and indirectly through the Saginaw Education Association. I have many fond memories in both categories. He has been missed in the community. I’m so glad he had time to enjoy the benefits after a great career. I WILL plant a tree – somewhere in Saginaw – – maybe even on school grounds somewhere. – Ruth Ann Knapp

  4. Bob was a member of our graduating class of Breckenridge, 1961. Pat and Bob wrote the class prophecy. We were able to visit with him at the 50th Class Reunion held in Breckenridge. Same friendly guy – our condolences for your loss, Jeanne and family. God Bless.

  5. Mr. Foster was a good person with a genuine heart that pushed all of his school kids to challenge themselves & do greater things in spite of the challenging environment they grew up in. I know that many lives were touched & changed during his tenure at Saginaw High in the early 90’s. We could always count on him to talk to. I finally found you & just wanted to say thank him for being one of the best student advocates I remember encountering during my high school years.
