Justin “Cory” Foster, 35 years old, born April 5, 1988 from Hurricane, WV, formerly from Branchland, WV left this world on Monday, June 19, 2023 while working on storm work in Marshall, Texas – doing what he loved.
Cory loved the job but loved the reward of helping others more. Cory worked hard every day to provide for his two beautiful children and his family.
He leaves behind a son, Aiden Rider (10yrs old), a daughter Delilah Jean (2yrs old), and a fiancé, Amanda Hightower. He is survived by his parents, Greg and Barbara Foster; sister - Andrea (Jason) Berkenbaugh; brother - Michael (Tammy Gill); Jeremy Foster; three nieces Nykia Berkenbaugh, Avarie Gill, and Miranda (Danny) Eckert; and one nephew Isaiah Berkenbaugh and Ethan Foster.
Cory worked hard for 8 years at AEP where he was a Class A Lineman. Cory loved his co-workers whom were more like a second family. He often spent more time at work than he did at home. He was always helping the community and many states where he often traveled for storm work. Cory always “chased the storm” which unfortunately ended in Texas where he lost his life. Cory was loved and admired by so many people near and far and he never met a stranger. Seldom did you see Cory without a smile on his face that would light up a room. Both of his children loved and admired their daddy. Cory will be missed by many friends and family.
Service will be 11 a.m. Tuesday, June 27, 2023 at Mc-Ghee Handley Funeral Home in West Hamlin with Eugene Byrd officiating. Burial will follow in Bell Ross Cemetery, Branchland, WV.
Visitation will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday at the funeral home.
