WINDSOR - Jackie E. Foist Jr., age 56, passed away on Tuesday, July 16, 2013, following injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident.
Jack was born Aug. 25, 1956, in Columbus, Ind., the son of Ida Schmitz and Jack Foist Sr.
He was a kind, compassionate, and outgoing person who would go out of his way to help others. He loved his family very much, as well as his loyal companions, Tasha and Zooy.
