<div itemprop="description">It is with profound sadness that the family of Kimball Lorten Foster (Kim) announces his passing on 26th October, 2016 in his 60th year. <br> <br>Kim was born in Kitimat, British Columbia to Robert and Helen Foster. He was raised in a loving family environment which taught him the values of integrity and trustworthiness. Kim followed in his father’s footsteps when he joined the RCMP in 1978. He was with the RCMP for 25 years in several postings across Canada, including the RCMP Musical Ride. <br> <br>Kim’s word was his bond and he role modelled his values each and every day. He made friends easily and was always respected by all that knew him as a very compassionate and objective man. Kim was always fair professionally and personally and always gave everyone the benefit of the doubt. <br> <br>In 1984, Kim married his soulmate and the love of his life, Donna Wood. Together they spent the next 32 years in an incredibly loving and trusting relationship in which they were not just husband and wife, but each other’s best friend. They always advocated for each other and made all of their decisions together as a team. They were blessed in 1987 with the birth of their beautiful daughter, Jenna and then again in 1988 when they welcomed their son Brian. They forged a closely knit family unit with Kim and Donna passing on the values of treating everyone with kindness and consideration to their children. Kim was a wonderful husband and father and time spent with his family was of prime importance in his life. <br> <br>He was such an inspiration as a human being on so many levels and will be sorely missed by all that knew and loved him. Kim was also a very spiritual man and his faith in God carried him and his family through some very difficult times. <br> <br>Kim was an avid lover of all sports … but his special passion was fishing. Together with his family, he spent many weekends and vacations on fishing trips and was always at his happiest when he was “hauling in the one that tried to get away”. It didn’t matter the season, ice fishing was as much fun as lake fishing or chasing the bigger ones in deep sea fishing. He also enjoyed travelling, music, time spent with family and friends and was an accomplished cook and baker (he finally perfected his icing…thank goodness). <br> <br>As a respected member of his community personally and professionally, he always felt strongly about contributing to the communities they lived in. He did so through volunteering as a hockey, soccer and volleyball coach as well as being an active member of the Lions Club and the Legion. <br>Kim believed strongly in keeping things simple and direct. He always took a very pragmatic approach to situations and one of his favourite sayings was “Is it a problem, or is it an inconvenience?” <br> <br>After retiring from the RCMP, Kim drove a school bus in Smoky Lake for the next 11 years. In June of 2014 after his own children had graduated and moved onto careers of their own, Kim retired from the driving and he and Donna relocated to a beautiful home they had built in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. <br> <br>Kim is survived by his beloved wife, Donna, his beautiful children Jenna and Brian (Kayla) and his cherished dog, Kramer. Having been predeceased by his father Robert and father in law, Arthur, Kim also leaves behind his loving family including his mother, Helen, siblings Robbie (Marian), Scott (John) and Leslie Anne (Wayne), mother-in-law Alice, special sister-in-law, Deb, brothers-in-law, Jim (Margaret) and Dale, and numerous nieces and nephews. <br> <br>The family would like to thank everyone for your love and support during this very difficult time. To those of you who walked with us on our journey, God Bless you. <br> <br>Kim, if love could keep you with us, you would be here forever. You will be forever in our hearts. <br></div>
