Mr. John Louis “Lou” Foust, Sr., 91, of Graham passed away at his residence on Friday, November 8, 2019 at 7:28 p.m.
A native of Alamance County, he was the husband of almost 70 years to the late Savana Catoe Foust, and the son of the late Phyllis Foust. Mr. Foust was a veteran of the U.S. Army and went on to play professional baseball for 6 years. He owned Lumark Tire in Greensboro, N.C. He was a member of Bethel Baptist Church in Graham.
Mr. Foust loved the Lord with all of his heart and lived his life with a strong faith and prayer life. Truthfully, he loved everyone he met and if you were blessed enough to know him, I’m sure you were given a hug and told that you were loved. He had the heart of Jesus. This world was a better place with him in it, now Heaven is sweeter with him Home. He left behind a legacy, not of riches, but of Love, that can only come from knowing Jesus!
