House Majority E-News for Oct 13, 2009 - Late Edition

Speaker's Comment on Rep. Richard Foster's Passing

'Rural Alaska and Nome have Lost a Truly Dedicated Public Servant'

(Kenai) - House Speaker Mike Chenault, R-Nikiski, was shocked and
saddened today to learn of the death of longtime Nome Representative
Richard Foster. He was 63 years old. Foster died of a heart attack
during a kidney dialysis treatment in Washington state.

"Rural Alaska and Nome have lost a truly dedicated public servant
today," Chenault said. "Richard's sense of humor and camaraderie were
hallmarks of the State House. He was a tireless advocate for his
district and all of Rural Alaska's needs. Our sympathies and prayers
go out to Cathy and their family tonight. Richard was an institution
in this state, and he'll be sorely missed."

Foster served 11 terms in the House, beginning in 1988.
