Dale Forrest Foster, 76 of Harrisville, passed away December 1, 2021, after a brief illness at Allegheny General Hospital.  Born November 11, 1945, in New Castle he was the son of the late Fred and Ruth (Heckathorne) Foster.  He graduated from New Wilmington High School and continued his education at Edinboro College after proudly enlisting in the United States Marnie Corp in September of 1963.  He was honorably discharged in July 1969 with the rank of Sargent.

Dale worked for various companies throughout his life, retiring from Brownlee Lumber Company in Brookville, PA where he drove the forklift.  He loved his sons and was a proud Papa of his granddaughter Abigail.  He enjoyed the outdoors and could be seen walking the neighborhood most days.  When not outside, he could always be found with a book in his hand.
