Maj. (RUSA) Billy Foust

Billy Foust, 92, of Mineral Wells, began his new life in the House of the Lord, on April 21, 2013.

Bill was a quiet, compassionate man who loved his family and his country. The greatest loves of his life were his wife, Micki, and his son, Jerome.

The second love in his life was his service to his country. Bill served 30 years in the US Army. He was a fixed and rotary wing pilot. He earned an Air Medal with five oak leaf clusters and the Silver Star after capturing 20 German soldiers from the air.

Upon retiring from the Army he went to work as the Safety Director for Civil Service at Fitzsimons Army Medical Center in Colorado for another 25 years before deciding to retire to Mineral Wells with Micki to rest and enjoy life and "hone-up" his third love, golf.

Bill and Micki were both avid golfers and could be seen daily on the greens together loving life and enjoying one another and their friends.

Bill is survived by his soul mate and loving wife of 70 years, Micki; his son and daughter in law, BG(RUSA) Jerome and Rosalind Foust, of Rockport; his grandchildren and their families, Scott and Janelle Foust and their daughter, Ella of El Paso; Kelley Foust and her children Jacob, Patrick, Seth and Alexandra of El Paso; sister in law, Bobbie Smith, nieces' Renda Smith and Robbie Chriestenson and her family, Albert, Chad, Ashley, Baylee, Robert, Terrie and Kassie; and special family friends, Donna Lucado and Roy Wasson, all of Mineral Wells; along with a host of other friends.

Bill will be met in Heaven by a congregation of loved ones including his parents, John C. and Frances Miller Foust; his brothers and sister Jack, John and Betty; his father and mother in law, Marshall and Hassie Roberts; his brother in law, Bud Smith; along with a host of other friends and family.
