    Deepest Sympathy to the Sturgeon family in the loss of your loved one. I met Foster a couple of times when he was visting with “Moose” in Monticello and he seemed like a pretty nice guy. I am sure he will be missed by many.

    Foster will be sincerely missed by all of us in the ATV shop here at Williams Tractor. He has been a customer and a friend for many years to everyone here. Anytime Foster came in he would come back to the shop and say “Hi” and give us a hard time, which we took gladly and gave back every chance we had. He did manage to squeeze in a question or two about his lawnmower or atv to remind us we were here to work. He may have only come in once a month, but any visit from Foster was a good one.
