Steven F. Foster

February 26, 1982 ‒ March 29, 2019

Marion, Ohio

Steven Francis Foster, aka Scuba Steve, age 37, left this world on Friday, March 29, 2019 at Marion General Hospital.

He was born on February 26, 1982 in Marion, Ohio to Lonnie Foster and Kristy (Fox) Foster, both of Marion.

Steven graduated in the year 2000 from Marion Harding High School. He worked as a mason and was employed with First Choice Glass Block in Delaware, Ohio.

Starting at a very young age, Steven had a love for animals of every type. Over the years he had many dogs, some gerbils, a snake, and a variety of lizards. But his fish tank was his pride and joy. Steven enjoyed being outdoors, fishing, and watching his sons ride their electric bikes and quad runners.

Steven didn’t know a stranger and would help anyone. He will be truly missed by the family and friends he leaves behind and welcomed by those waiting for him on the other side.

He is survived by his wife Brittany Foster (Price), his son’s Cole Foster and Brian Price of Marion. His sister Heather Foster of Sandusky, Ohio. Father-in-law and Mother-in-law, Kevin and Melissa Price of Green Camp, Ohio. Brother-in-law Shane Price of Marion. Grandmother Kathy Hardesty, Grandmother Kay Foster, and his Great-grandmother Beulah Kline all of Marion. Grandmother-in-law Brenda Donegan from West Virginia, along with many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Steven was preceded in death by his Grandfather Bob Fox, Grandfather Bill Hardesty, along with his Great- Grandfather Harry Kline. Grandfather-in-law James Donegan, Grandmother-in-law Judith Williams, and cousin Jaycob Fox.

Being that Steven was a loyal Cleveland Browns fan, he would want everyone to show their support for his favorite football team by wearing a Cleveland Browns shirt, if you have one.
Calling hours will be Thursday, April 4, 2019 at 11:00AM hosted by the Snyder Funeral Homes, Denzer Chapel, with the funeral service starting at 1:00PM. Officiating the service will be Rev. Lippert. Burial will follow in the LaRue Cemetery.

    You will be missed !!!!!!! With sadness we have to say these painful words.

    Britt , boys and family . I am truly sorry for your loss. Hopefully the support you have around you can keep you safe.

  • It’s so hard to say the words goodbye, so my words to you Steve are until I see you again. We have known each other for many years and some of the times we have are unforgettable. I loved you as you was my brother and your one of the only ones I considered as a brother to me because we were close. It’s so hard look at my phone cuz I’m expecting get a message from you cuz it was guaranteed I would at least get one from you a day. I know this was a tragedy that you would have never meant to happen, but it’s a hard lesson and I hate it took this to happen show us how fast by one mistake of judgement that could change so many lives and for you take yours. I would have done anything to change that day March 29,2019 but obviously I can’t. I love you Steve and I will always be there for Brittany because I know that’s what you would want. Love you until we meet again.

  • I’m so very sorry for your loss Kristy , Lonnie Heather, Brittany and the boys . This us such a sad situation for all of you , my thoughts and prayers are with you .

  • I certainly loved his smile and the way his eyes smiled too. So many in pain with this empty void. Lonnie, Kristie, Kay, Brittany & boys, Cole, Heather, I am so sorry of the pain you are enduring. I pray that this death will save others from the same outcome. May it not be in vain.
    I attended a funeral many years ago and swore to the little man in the casket that I would do everything I could to one day see him in heaven. Not knowing how one could get to heaven, I set out to find out how to do that. May you vow to do that as well.
