Raymond Thomas Foster, Jr., 45, passed from this earthly world on May 12, 2018. He was a resident of Fort Worth, Texas. Raymond was born on June 16, 1972 in San Angelo, Texas to Tommy and Barbara Foster. He attended Sterling City I.S.D. and completed high school at James Bowie High School in Austin, Texas. He attended Howard College and the Art Institute of Dallas studying culinary arts. Raymond was an amazing chef. Whether he was cooking for a few or for many, he enjoyed sharing his talent with others. Not only was Raymond a great chef, he was quite the comedian. He could always make one laugh! Raymond could tell a story or a joke and have you on the floor laughing. He could make any situation better simply by adding humor to it. We will miss his wittiness, his spunk, and his stubbornness. He is survived by his mother, Barbara Foster Carter; sister and husband, Jeanie Foster McGinn and Ronny McGinn; step-brother and wife, Kris and Lily Carter; nephew, Matthew Hasty; niece, Jenny Hasty; aunt and husband, Marilyn and David Drake; uncles, Charles Abel, Barry and (wife) Becky Abel; cousins, Chris Gookin, Barry Abel Jr., Jessica Spann, Laurie Startz, Heather Stilwell, Heather Hirt, R.T. Mackie, and Leigh Jeter and numerous friends. He is preceded in death by his father, Tommy Foster; step-father, Jim Carter; grand-parents, Thomas and Georgina Foster and Al and Myrtle Abel; nephew, Thomas Blaine Hasty; and special friend, Rodney Weldon. Visitation will be on Wednesday, May 16, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Harper Funeral Home. Graveside service will be held at 10 a.m. on Thursday, May 17, at Foster Cemetery in Sterling City, Texas. A Celebration of Life will follow at 2 p.m. and be held at Harper Funeral Home in San Angelo, Texas. Jamie Highsmith, a close family friend, will perform services. We would like to give a special thanks to Diana Gamboa and her sons Charlie and Nick Gamboa who cared for Raymond over the past few years.
