Foster, Dana G

DANA GAIL FOSTER, 80, of Ceredo, W.Va., entered the gates of Glory, August 30, 2020, after a short illness. He was born April 8, 1940, in Milton, W.Va., a son of the late George Luther and Neva Evelyn White Foster. Dana was also preceded in death by his mother-in-love, Warelda Walters McCloud. He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Donita McCloud Foster; one daughter, Shawna Foster of St. Albans, W.Va.; one son and daughter, Zane and Rhonda Leffingwell Foster of Lavalette, W.Va.; grandchildren Kayla Foster and Anthony Vance of Huntington, W.Va.; a brother Jimmy (Juanita) Foster of Milton, W.Va.; three sisters, Carolyn Foster (Blane) Perry of Milton, W.Va., Marlene McCloud Simmons of Springfield, Mo., Katrina McCloud (Kenny) Childers of Huntington, W.Va.; nieces and nephews whom he loved very much and many special “children” and “grandchildren”-in-love. Dana was a retired Paint Department Supervisor for ACF Industries, Huntington, W.Va., and Milton, Pa. He was a member of Christ Temple Church, where he sang in the choir.
