Richard Foster Obituary

Richard Jay Foster, 78, of Austintown and formerly of Wellington, died Monday, November 28, 2022 at MetroHeatlh in Cleveland. Born in Colorado, he was the son of the late Paul and Beata (nee Ewell) Foster. Richard grew up in the Norwalk area and later moved to Wellington. After graduation, Richard served in the United States Air Force.
