Dan proudly stepped into on the role of patriarch of his family. He cherished the last 33 years working side-by-side with his brother at Terminix where his team became his extended family. He was passionate about LSU, cooking and his dog Bella. He loved fishing and hunting with this family, friends and relatives and was proud to pass on this tradition to his grandson Blake. As part of the U.S. Army, Dan served his country in Vietnam and continued his service in his community holding leadership positions such as, president of Houma-Terrebonne Rotary Club, president of Louisiana Pest Control Association, serving on the Louisiana Pest Control Commission, and on the boards of START Corporation and the Terrebonne General Foundation. Those that were lucky to know him will forever miss his playful sense of humor and incredible warmth. He greeted everyone with a handshake and smile that quickly turned into a hug or a kiss. His infectious laugh and heartfelt cooking will be missed at family gatherings, football games, and community events. May all of these admirable qualities continue to live in all that knew and loved him.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the START Corporation or the Rotary Foundation.
Chauvin Funeral Home is honored to serve the family of Dan Foster.
