YORK Ivan "Bud" R. Foltz was born on March 26, 1931, and passed peacefully on Friday, August 22, 2014, at the Hospice Unit of the Lebanon VA Hospital. Ivan was preceded in death by his wife of 46 years, Gale Hill Foltz. He was the son of the late Ivan R. Foltz, Sr. and Mary E. Foltz. Ivan leaves his daughter, Emily Sindlinger, and her husband, Gregory, along with his four beloved grandchildren, Ted Sindlinger of Charlottesville, Va., Ian Sindlinger and his wife, Chantal, of Rumney, N.H., Grant Sindlinger of Central Point, Ore., and Claire Marie Sindlinger of Chicago, Ill.
