March 21, 1976-Sept. 23, 2013


Michael Foust, 37, of Findlay, died on Monday.

He was born on March 21, 1976, in Findlay to Robert and Barbara (Calvelage) Foust, who survive.

He married his high school sweetheart Aleta on May 16, 1998, in Findlay and she resides in there with their two children Makenna and Connor.

He is also survived by his sister, Jennifer (Ryan) Crawford of Findlay; his brothers, Jon (Cori) Foust of Rawson and Tim Foust of Van Buren; his father- and mother-in-law, Mike and Mary Hoopman of Findlay; several very special nieces and nephews; and several brothers- and sisters-in-laws.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Hubert and Marguerite Calvelage; his paternal grandparents, Robert and Virginia Foust; and his aunt, Shirley Maag.

Michael worked at Kohl’s Distribution Center and many years at Spark’s Commercial Tire. He was a member of Pheasants Forever and was the recipient of several Pope and Young Awards.

Mike’s smile and personality always lit up a room. His children were his pride and joy. He loved fishing and taking walks with Makenna, who he called Jelly Bean and his beautiful princess. He also enjoyed target practicing and throwing the football with Connor (Superdude).

Mike was an avid deer hunter. He enjoyed spending his weekends on Lake Erie camping with his family and fishing with his dad and brothers. He also had a great time on his yearly family vacations to Florida.

Anyone who knew Mike knew that he was always thinking about what he could do for others. He was greatly loved and will be missed terribly.

A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Friday at Coldren-Crates Funeral Home, Findlay, with Pastor Craig Cramer officiating. Burial will be in Bright Cemetery, Marion Township.

Visitation will be held from 2-8 p.m., Thursday at the funeral home.

Memorial contributions may be made to Hancock County Pheasants Forever, in care of Coldren-Crates Funeral Home in his memory.
