Walter Wade Foskey Obituary
Walter Wade Foskey

AGE: 44 • Hockessin

Walter Wade Foskey, 44, of Hockessin, DE, passed away at his home.

Born on March 23, 1969 to Horace and Nadine Foskey, Wade was a lifelong resident of Hockessin. He attended Alexis I. DuPont High School. After his schooling, Wade was a dedicated employee at R. E. Michael Company Inc. for 16 years where he worked in sales. Hardly missing a day of work and rarely ever taking a vacation, Wade was known for his diligence and faithfulness to his duties on the job. In addition to his career at the company, he was the longtime caregiver for his mother as age and declining health limited her mobility.

Wade was incredibly gifted in information technology, teaching himself programming and building numerous computers from the ground up. He was a man of few words, but had a sweet spirit and was the kind of guy who would do anything for anyone.

He was preceded in death by his father, Horace Foskey.

Left to cherish his memory are his mother, Nadine Foskey, of Hockessin, DE, sister, Tammy Foskey, of Wilmington, DE, half-sisters, Leathe Comer, of Newark, DE and Roxanne Foskey, of Elkton, MD, and half-brother, Christopher Foskey, of Newark, DE.

Funeral services will be held at 11 am on Thursday February 27, 2014 in the Chapel at Gracelawn Memorial Park, 2220 North DuPont Highway, New Castle, DE where friends and family may visit from 10 to 11 am. Interment will follow the service.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the Lupus Foundation of America, 2000 L Street NW, Suite 410, Washington, DC 20036.
