Craig G. Foust, 74, formerly of Altoona, went home to be with the Lord on Monday.
He was greeted there by his mother and father, Norma and Harold Foust; a brother, James “Gary”; and his beloved wife, Dolores.
Craig is survived by his daughter, Joy (Mark); his sister, Sharon; a brother, Derwood; his grandchildren, Georgia and Leo; and many loving nieces and nephews.
He grew up in Altoona. His height and athleticism served him as an amazing basketball player during high school and college. He still holds a basketball record at Penn State Altoona, where he graduated in 1971 with a degree in psychology.
Craig met his wife when they both worked at the U.S. Postal Service. He also worked for many years as a computer programmer at Vitro and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
In his free time, Craig loved to tell jokes, enjoy music and follow the sport of kings. He could always recommend a horse for a Triple Crown race or recall the details of a funny story.
He will be missed and we send him in love to his heavenly rest.
Friends will be received from 9:30 until the Funeral Liturgy at 10:30 a.m. Monday, Nov. 13, 2023, at St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church, Gaithersburg, Md. Interment will immediately follow at St. Rose Cemetery.
