James F. Foster, 70, of Hillsdale, WY passed away unexpectedly at his home on September 3, 2021 in Hillsdale, WY.

James graduated from Stamford High school in 1969 and received an Associate’s degree from Milford Tech in 1971. He married his high school sweetheart, Susan Stephens, on December 5, 1971 at Trinity Lutheran Church. To this union one son, Justin, was born. His life’s work centered around soil conservation, heavy equipment and construction in Nebraska, Colorado, and Wyoming and was a lifelong member of the NRA.
His life revolved around his family, hunting, shooting sports and the outdoors. He enjoyed nothing more than hunting with his son and grandsons or a friendly competition at the shooting range. Weather permitting, no Christmas day was complete without a blue rock shoot.
