On Thursday February 9th, 2023, Paul Read Foster, loving husband, father and friend to many passed away way too soon at the age of 66. Paul was born December 18, 1956, in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.

Paul worked for various news outlets, later developing his own production company where he did freelance work until he relocated to Knoxville, Tennessee to work at Jupiter Entertainment. He was a talented photographer/videographer, mentor, friend, wonderful husband, father, and brother to many. He loved adventure, travel, and could find a fix for anything. He enjoyed weekend trips to the mountains, camping, kayaking on the river, playing an occasional round of golf, and was always looking for “deals” on cars. He is preceded in death by his mother and father Glen and Lena Foster, brothers Glen Foster and Jim Foster. He is survived by his wife of 35 years, Lee, his children, Ashley, Bryan, and Allyson, and many nieces and nephews. Service dates and locations will be announced at a later time.
