Leroy Earl Foss

October 8, 1934 ~ May 18, 2020 (age 85)


Leroy "Hooker" Foss of Lisbon, ND passed away on May 18, 2020 at Sanford Medical Center, Fargo, North Dakota

Leroy Earl Foss was born on October 8, 1934 to Oscar and Agnes (Anderson) Foss.  Leroy was born and raised in Lisbon, where he was lovingly known as "Hooker" due to his hook shot which helped lead the Broncos to a state championship in 1951.  Leroy married Kay Keeler in 1957.  Together, they raised their two children Mike and Brenda on their farm west of Lisbon.  

Leroy loved raising registered shorthorns where colorful language was abound.  He also loved watching all sports, especially his beloved Bison.  His biggest love was watching his granddaughters (and in more recent years his great grandchildren) grow and play. 

He is survived by his loving wife of 63 years, Kay; son: Mike (Karen) Foss West Fargo, ND; daughter: Brenda (Kent) Hendrickson Duluth, MN; three granddaughters: Kelly, Sarah, and Amy (Guille); and three great-grandchildren: Luciana, Quinn, and Lorenzo. He is preceded in death by his grandson Craig and his cat Pawpaw.

In lieu of flowers, memorials can be sent to Riding For Dreams, PO Box 911, Lisbon, ND  58054.
