Sadly, and all too early for his loved ones and friends, but as called by his Lord and Savior, Scott T. Foster, age 41, departed this life on November 12, 2017. Scott’s impact on his family and friends will leave a lasting impression imprinted on their hearts.
Family and friends of Scott T. Foster were blessed by his arrival on February 24, 1976, to his parents Mr. and Mrs. Gary and Delores Slagle Foster, of Bronston, Kentucky.
Scott graduated from Southwestern High School in 1994 and from Western Kentucky University in 1999 with a Bachelor of Arts. Scott was accepted to and graduated from the Cumberland School of Law, Samford University, in Birmingham Alabama, earning his Juris Doctor degree in 2003.
After Scott’s graduation, he worked for local attorney John G. Prather until he relocated to Nashville, Tennessee to work for the law firm of Brewer, Krause, & Brooks. In 2005, Scott decided to come back home and open his own practice, Scott T. Foster Law Office, PLLC.
Scott married his high school sweetheart and the love of his life, Mrs. Amy Deaton Foster, on August 10, 1996. Their union resulted in the blessing of three wonderful and beautiful children: the late Noah Thomas Foster, 15 years old; Emma Rose Foster, 11 years old; and, Ava Grace Foster, 7 years old. Scott had no greater love than that for Jesus Christ, his Lord and Savior. Scott was a member at Beacon Hill Baptist Church. His love, devotion, and admiration for his family was magical, special, and genuine.
Despite being a great attorney and beloved within his profession, Scott was a simple man. He was a hard working advocate devoted to providing his clients with the highest level of representation possible. He had passion for his profession and clients. He lived by the Charles Dickens’ expression that mankind was his business. He brought a smile to the face of everyone who knew him. He loved his family dearly.
Second to his passion for his family, were his passions for flying, hunting, restoring cars, woodworking, movies, and traveling. Scott was a member of the Kentucky and Tennessee Bar Associations, and the National Rifle Association.
Even though Scott departed this life on November 12, 2017, those who had the pleasure of knowing him will forever remember his contagious smile, charming personality, and his genuine passion and concern for others. He was a true friend who touched the lives of many.
Scott is survived by his wife of 21 years, Mrs. Amy Deaton Foster; two daughters, Emma and Ava Foster; his parents, Mr. Gary and Delores “Dee” Foster; two brothers, Mr. Michael (and Nicole) Foster and Mr. Greg (and Debbie) Foster; his father and mother in law, Danny and Janice Deaton; paternal grandmother, Mrs. Nellie Foster; and maternal grandfather, Mr. Eugene (and Barb) Slagle.
Scott’s only son, Mr. Noah Foster, an outstanding young man, also departed this life on the same day shortly after Scott’s passing on November 12, 2017.
Scott was preceded in death by his grandfather, Mr. Kermit Foster; and maternal grandmother, Mrs. Rose Slagle.
Visitation will be on Thursday, November 16, 2017 after 4:00pm EST. at the Beacon Hill Baptist Church, 4705 South Hwy 27, Somerset, KY 42503.
A celebration of Scott’s life will be held at 11:00am EST. on Friday, November 17, 2017, at the Beacon Hill Baptist Church, with the Bro. Donovan Burton officiating. A burial ceremony will occur shortly thereafter at the Bronston Cemetery.
