David Michael Foster Jr.

David Michael Foster Jr., age 44, passed away unexpectedly on January 29, 2024, at Memorial Hospital in Jacksonville, FL, leaving behind a legacy of love, adventure, and boundless enthusiasm.

Born on January 24, 1980, in Miami, FL, David was the cherished son of David Michael Foster and Constance Elizabeth (Van Valkenburg) Foster. From the moment he entered the world, David’s vibrant spirit illuminated the lives of those around him.

David was a devoted father to his pride and joy, his son David Michael Foster III, and his daughter Alexa Leeann Foster, aged 16 and 14, respectively. His children were the center of his universe, and he poured his heart and soul into supporting them in every endeavor, whether it was cheering them on from the sidelines or offering guidance in life’s journey.

Possessing a thirst for knowledge, David pursued an extensive education, culminating in the attainment of two master’s degrees in business. His entrepreneurial spirit led him to become a successful business operator, leaving an indelible mark with ventures such as Mohawk Recycling, Alligator Enterprises, FSI (Foster Services, Inc.), Bulldog Motorcycles, and numerous others.

While David worked hard and embraced life’s challenges, he never lost sight of what truly mattered: family. A proud American, he prioritized his loved ones above all else, embodying the values of loyalty and camaraderie. To his friends, he was a steadfast companion, always ready to lend a helping hand or share a laugh. His magnetic personality and zest for life made him the heartbeat of any gathering, captivating all who had the privilege of knowing him.

David lived life on the edge, finding exhilaration in pursuits like motorcycle riding and marksmanship. His adventurous spirit knew no bounds, and he regaled friends and acquaintances alike with tales of his escapades, each story more captivating than the last. Yet, amidst his daring exploits, David remained a pillar of strength and compassion, ensuring that those he cared for felt seen and valued.

Above all, David held a special place in his heart for his mother, Constance Foster, whom he cherished dearly. He made it a point to express his love and gratitude regularly, showering her with tokens of affection and appreciation.

David leaves behind a vast network of loved ones whose lives he touched profoundly. He is survived by his son David Foster III, daughter Alexa Foster, non-biological daughter Juliette Angelique Labelle Pry, and fiancée Dalla Pry. Additionally, he is mourned by his devoted mother, Constance Foster, and her partner Bill Kelly; siblings Cara Shipp, Dawn Barber, and Christine Parrish; along with their respective families. David’s memory will live on in the hearts of all who had the privilege of knowing him.

In his passing, David rejoins his father, David Foster, in eternal peace. Though he may be gone from our sight, his spirit will continue to inspire and uplift us, reminding us to embrace life with the same passion and zest that defined his remarkable journey.

Funeral Service will be 11 AM Wednesday February 7th, 2024 in Evergreen Chapel 4535 Main St Jacksonville, Florida 32206. A visitation will be held in the Chapel for one hour prior to the Funeral Service.

    David ‘s smile and enthusiasm were infectious. I have been friends with David for about 15 years. Boy he sure loved his children and family. Through ups and downs and living life full on he continued to fight on. Not to sound overly familiar- but it seemed over the last year or so -he started to find more peace and to slow down a bit and find a stillness. My prayers are for his children and family and friends -that they can keep fighting and living with enthusiasm and joy and over time to heal and to keep David’s spirit alive.. God bless and rest in peace David-we will always keep you in our
    hearts.

    David was way more than a businessman… he was a family man and his family included many friends. David was down to earth and never thought he was better than anyone else… he was just one of the good Ole boys! He could carry on a conversation with anyone about anything. The love he had for Dalla and their children was just above and beyond…. it was a love that most wish they could find. Going to the yards will NOT be the same knowing David is no longer there. He will be missed greatly. We are
    blessed for the time God put David in our lives we just wish he couldn’t stayed) with us longer. Rip our sweet friend we love you and you will live forever in our hearts.
    With much love
    Wally and Barbara
