Markeith La-Roy Foster


Markeith La-Roy Foster was born on August 9, 1958 in Columbus, Ohio at Grant Hospital to parents Frances Roberts and Curtis Foster. As a child he attended Hebrew Baptist Church. Markeith graduated from Linden McKinley High School. He was a loving husband, father, son, brother, uncle and a very devoted grandfather and true friend. Markeith loved Michigan State football, music, playing his harmonica, working on cars, riding motorcycles and was a lifetime member of Heavy Metal Motorcycle Club where they knew him as “Di-Di Dash”. He was everyone’s mechanic and he was there for his family and friends when they needed him. Markeith loved bragging about his many grandchildren and everyone knew him as G-Dad. This world will not be the same without him! “Markeith, Tippy, G-Dad, Dash” had a loving spirit and a huge, inviting, funny personality. He made everyone laugh.
