Michael Phillip Foraker January 20, 1957 - September 27, 2008 2 Corinthians 5:8 "We are of good courage, I say... to be absent from the body is to be at home with the Lord." Long time resident, Michael Phillip Foraker was born on January 20, 1957 in Grand Junction, CO and went to be with the Lord on September 27, 2008. Michael was currently employed with Tri-State Trucking of Vernal, UT and previously employed by Dawn Trucking of Fruita, CO. Michael was a truly loving and devoted husband to his wife, Cathy and referred to her as "His Best Friend!". He was a loving father, and was dedicated to his friends. He was a very simple man, quick witted, enjoyed being home, spending time with his family and when he gave his word, you could count on him. One of his most famous quotes was "just because you can hear a conversation, doesn't make you a part of it". He enjoyed his 1982 Peterbilt, coin collecting, moving rigs, carpentry, eagles, cat fishing and eating Almond M & M's in color order. Michael is survived by his wife, Catherine Annette Foraker of Grand Junction; son Dustin (Mindy) Foraker of Grand Junction; daughter, Audrey Foraker of Loma; stepsons, Justin Price and Travis Price of Loma; brothers, Steven (Laurie) White of Grand Junction and Jason White of Denver; sisters, Diane Foraker of Grand Junction; Paula Quick of Fruita; Jennifer Richards (Brian) of Chicago, IL; and Amy (Brad) Adams of Seattle, WA. Michael is also survived by his mother, Anne W. White of Denver and Frank Foraker of Grand Junction; five grandchildren and a very large extended family. A funeral service will be held Thursday, October 2, 2008 at 10:00 a.m. at Monument View Bible Church, 1173 17 1/2 Road, Fruita, Colorado. In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been established in Michael's honor at American National Bank. Arrangements are entrusted to Snell-McLean Funeral Home.
