John was born August 18, 1948 in Enid, to John and Ella (Hill) Foster.

He served two tours in Vietnam and received several awards for his service, including the Purple Heart, Good Conduct, and National Defense Combat Gold Star. His dedication and bravery were evident in his receipt of the Vietnam Combat and Vietnam Gallantry Cross, as well as the Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal.

John enjoyed spending time outdoors, whether it was fishing, hunting, camping, or riding motorcycles with friends. One of his favorite pastimes was traveling to the East Coast to see the ocean and spending quality time with his grandchildren.
