Born in Illinois on August 16, 1941, John “Dave” Foehringer, 77, entered into rest on February 3, 2019.

In addition, Dave was blessed by six grandchildren, Davey, Elizabeth, Jacob, Ryne, Bryce and Nolan, as well as many nieces, nephews and extended family members who loved him dearly.

  A native of Illinois, Dave proudly served his country through the United States Army. Dave moved to California in 1962 where he met his wife Nora, and married in 1966. He worked for Libby Owens Ford for twenty-plus years and made a career change working at Sharpe Army Depot.  He finally retired at Tracy Defense Depot after thirty years of service. He was a fifty-seven year member of St. Anthony’s Catholic Church. Dave was a generous man with a cutting sense of humor. He enjoyed the little things in life, eating ice cream with the grandchildren and watching Fox news. He was an avid fan of the Chicago Cubs, Bears and the Blackhawks. Dave’s grandchildren were the apple of his eye, he absolutely loved going to all of their MHS sporting events and Beyer High events. He was their biggest fan as he always gleamed with pride. Above all, Dave’s most lasting legacy will remain that of a family man. He was truly dedicated to his wife, children and grandchildren, he loved them unconditionally.
