Jeffrey A. Fose


HILTON – Passed away on Monday, January 6, 2020 at age 67.  Predeceased by his parents, Donn & Jean; brother, Ken; and beloved dog, Casey.  Survived by his wife Kathryn (Tarala); children Jeffrey (Katie), Ryanne, & Jenna; grandsons, Abe & Woody; brother, Steven; sister, Donna Salter; many nieces, nephews and cousins; his “girls”, Lucy & Layla; and his many “boyfriends” at Empire Dragway.

Jeff was a U.S. Army Veteran and a retiree from Delco Products.  He loved anything with an engine and wheels, especially his ’64 Chevy Impala which he drag raced at Empire.  He enjoyed his monthly Euchre tournaments at the Dutch Mill.  Jeff was always there to lend a hand, even if it meant being an inadvertent “getaway driver”.  Everyone who was lucky enough to have known him will miss his big heart, goofy jokes, and infectious giggle.  He will be forever missed.  The family wishes to thank the staff at Strong Memorial Hospital Unit 8-1400 for their wonderful care and support to Jeff and our family.

His Family Prayers will be held Monday (Jan 13th) 10:00 AM in the Funeral Home Chapel.  As Jeff requested all family and friends please wear casual attire, sleeveless t-shirts encouraged.  Jeff always enjoyed wearing sleeveless t-shirts.  Private Interment, Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.  In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Humane Society at Lollypop Farm in his memory.
