Obituary for Stephen L. Foss

Stephen L. Foss of Cherry Hill, NJ, died August 27, 2017. Age 83. Beloved husband of Maryann O'Brien Foss. Loving father of Debra Santos (Brian) of Ramstein Air Base, Kaiserslautern, Germany; Sandy Foss of Saco, ME and William Foss (Heidi) of Grants Pass, OR. Devoted grandfather of Lena Aceto, Amy Rodriguez, Imogen Foss and Trinity Foss. Devoted great grandfather of Caleb, Luke, Gabriel, James, Samuel and Axl. Dear brother of Ed Foss (Sue) of Wilmington, NC and Jon Foss (Ruth) of Biddeford, ME. Also survived by many nieces and nephews.

Steve graduated from Biddeford High School in 1952, where he excelled in football, basketball and baseball all four years. He showed such promise in pre-season football try-outs that he was selected and attended football camp in Union, Maine his freshman year, a rare occurrence at the time. Steve also managed to play basketball on amateur teams all over southern Maine when he wasn't working, and was an outstanding candlepin bowler, ultimately the State of Maine candlepin bowling champion one year.

He went to work in his father's Sheet Metal Shop in Saco, ME, where he apprenticed and was employed for many years, and became a much sought-after expert sheet metal fabricator and installer. Steve eventually opened his own sheet metal shop in Biddeford ME. Later he had metal and roofing businesses in Portland, ME and Haddonfield, NJ. Steve was very successful as a master sheet metal fabricator until his retirement a few years ago, specializing in copper and stainless steel products and roofing. Many fine copper and stainless steel roofs around the Haddonfield, New Jersey area are a testament to the fine work of his shop.

Steve was a very dedicated Christian Scientist and Practitioner of the Christian Science Church. He spent much of his time teaching new members about the teachings of Mary Baker Eddy, always emphasizing the positive values associated with Christian Science.
