    Deepest sympathies to the Foster family. I have only known Darrell a short time, through his friend Jim. I always enjoyed the Bob Evans lunches with you and Jim. It was a privilege to have met you. You were one of the good guys with such a kind soul.

  • Jim Crawford

    I am saddened to hear of the passing of my longtime friend. I will miss you my friend. Meeting you many many years ago as I was delivering items to Loeb Electric, who knew we would become friends. You were one of the good guys and they just don’t make them like you anymore. We spent many years taking each other out for lunch for our birthdays. I will miss those lunches with you. You put up a great fight and never gave up.
    Deepest condolences to the Foster family.

  • Charles Sibio

    I had the pleasure of knowing Darrel through our work place. If you knew him, you will remember him as a professional at any task making sure it was done correctly every single time. Great detail and full concentration on what was put in front of him. He loathed at my jokes, and I at his early golf swing. This news is a shock to me as I retired not knowing he has any health issues.
    D- you will be missed.

  • Tina Weis

    I wanted to offer my deepest sympathies to the Foster family. I have known Darrell for 26 years through Loeb Electric. 10 of those years I spent working very closely with him and spent many hours golfing with him at numerous golf outings. He was one of the most hardworking and dedicated coworkers I’ve ever known. We were both terrible at golf but always tried to play on the same teams so we could compare how bad we both were but still enjoy just hanging out and playing golf. Thanks for all the laughs throughout the years Darrell. I loved your dry sense of humor. Rest in peace Darrell❤️
