In Memoriam 

Darryl Douglas Foster

                                                                        12/5/46 --12/5/17

Rest in Peace

Darryl passed away on his 71st birthday from complications of diabetes.  

He is survived by his sister, Susan (Foster) Baker and brother-in law Fred Baker.

He attended Liberty Blvd Elementary, South Gate Junior High, and was a proud graduate of South Gate High School, class of S'64.

He attended LA Trade Tech in the printing trades department, and was a printer and lithographer by profession.

He was drafted into the Army from '66 to '68 where he served as a printer.

More than anything, all his life he loved fast cars: he loved to work on and drive anything that went fast, and he loved NASCAR races.   He loved Fords and especially his Mustangs.  His other great love was trains, both full sized locomotives, and his large collection of N-scale models.  He wore his engineers cap with pride.

Daryl was a big guy with a big laugh and a corny sense of humor.  He lived his life with enthusiasm and courage, and above all believed in having a good time on his own terms.

Many thanks to all who remember him well.

Interment will be at the VA Cemetery in Riverside.

Darryl and I went all through school together. From Liberty Blvd to SGHS. I found out about this site about 3 months to late. RIP Darrly. I can remenber when his mom bought a plymouth fury or was it a Dodge Dart. 1963 with a 318 cu inch engine and a push button transmission shifter on the dash. Boy he could mow through those gears and screech those tires LOL.

RIP Daryl, The car Walt Webber is talking about was a Fury, fire engine RED in color. And he burned lots of rubber off those tires! I could tell many fun stories with Daryl , but I'm sure we all could do the same with our best friends. He will always be with me in my memories.He is gone too soon. I look back at our class S64 and I see many of my old friends have passed, seems just like yesterday we were all together back at South Gate HS. I feel we were like one big family So many of our classmates gone to soon. Bob Stephen
