Benjamin (Bee), (BT), (Ben), Thomas Foster, 86, of Rocky Mount, passed away Saturday, May 4, 2013. He was born August 9, 1926, son of the late Al and Essie Foster. Benjamin was preceded in death by his wife he loved always Ruby Foster; granddaughter, Kassidy Foster; brothers, Clyde Foster, Harry Foster, Sam Foster; sisters, Mary Turner and Helen Hunt. Our daddy's passion and love was being behind a wheel of a truck. His career started early in life and lasted until he was 80 years old. It consists usually of driving seven days a week to provide for his family in doing what he loved. We know our Daddy is driving those streets of gold in Heaven now. God gifted us with the sweetest, loving and passionate father that a family could ask for. His spirit will live on with the family he cared for.
