    We regret to advise of the death of Sapper David Noel “Dave” Foss (Ret’d) of Hazenmore, SK on 24 May 2009 at the age of 81 years.

    Dave was born in Aneroid, SK on Christmas Day - hence his middle name.  He grew up on a farm south of Aneroid until he moved to Lister, BC with his family.  He had been working in logging, mining, and construction when he joined the Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers in May 1951.  He then transferred to the Royal Canadian Engineers and served in Korea.  He left the Army in 1954 and returned to Lister. Dave went back to mining, logging and construction again. He married in 1958 and started farming and raising cattle south of Hazenmore, SK.  Dave was a dedicated member of the Masonic Lodge and the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #85 in Aneroid.

    Dave’s funeral will be held on 29 May at 2:00 PM in the Aneroid United Church with both Royal Canadian Legion and Masonic Rites. Donations can be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation or the Lung Association.  Interment to follow in the Aneroid Cemetery. {dcJan19gd} [zsp]
