09/12/1939 - 05/25/2023
Jim Foster, beloved husband, father, and friend, has died. He was born in Seattle, Washington to John Henry Foster and Viola Mae Foster. Jim spent his childhood years in Greenwood and remained in the greater Seattle area his entire life.
He was a devoted husband, sharing a loving marriage of 50 years with his late wife, Betty Jean Foster (d. 2019). Together, they raised two sons, Jason John Foster (49) and Mathew James Foster (47). Jim was a pharmacist, and eventually became the owner of LD Bracken Pharmacies.
He loved boating, camping, fishing, especially with friends and family. He enjoyed building improvements to his house, various boats, and campers. He loved animals, and he cherished the companionship they brought to his life.
As a father, Jim was an incredible source of kindness, generosity, and support. He always put time with his family first. Jim had a wonderful sense of humor; you could always find him with a smile on his face. His warmth and care will forever resonate in the hearts of those who knew him. The twinkle in his eyes will be a cherished memory.
Jim is survived by his sons, his sister Betty Johnson, his grandchildren Mackenzie and Ashton, and his dog Iris, who was adopted by Matthew. May the memories of James Henry Foster bring comfort and solace during this difficult time.
