Butler, Ohio

BUTLER ~ Frank M. Foor, Sr., age 63, of Butler, passed away Wednesday morning September 9, 2009 in his rural Knox County home.

He was born September 14, 1945 in Columbus to Glen E. and Dorothy Foor, and was graduated from Lexington High School in 1964.

A lifetime area resident, Frank was an avid hunter. He taught his sons the sport, once bagging an eleven-point buck, and together they hunted all sorts of wild game. He kept his Sea Swirl docked on Lake Erie ~ his weekend destination for perch and walleye fishing.

He was a member of Moose Lodge #1454 of Bonita Springs, Florida, the National Rifle Association, and was a Trophy Life Member of North American Hunting Club.

Described as generous, with a giving heart, Frank had worked as a tow-motor operator and lead man with Hydromatic, and later Pentair for more than 30 years.

Following his retirement, he delivered copies of the Mount Vernon News on a rural route.

Surviving are his wife Sheryl D. (Lewis) Foor; sons Frank (Tessa) Foor, Jr. and James Foor all of Butler; grandchildren Hailee, Samuel, Victoria, Christopher, Gabriel and Joshua; his father Glen Foor of Bonita Springs, FL; his brother Clinton (Linda) Foor of Mansfield; a sister Carrie (James) Frances of Lorain; several in-laws and numerous nieces and nephews.

His mother preceded him in death.

The Foor family chose the Bellville Snyder Funeral Home to handle compassionate cremation services. They will hold a private memorial service.
