Obituary

Jack K. Foltz, 80, of Elkhart, passed away January 15, 2023, after a valiant struggle with a debilitating stroke. Jack was born on June 2, 1942 in Elkhart to the late Delorme and Madalene (Barfell) Foltz.

In 1962, he married Betty Straley at Central Christian Church. She survives with children: Jack (Dorry) Foltz II of Elkhart, Lisa Foltz of Maricopa, Arizona and Troy (Shannon) Foltz also of Maricopa. Also surviving is a granddaughter, Rylee Foltz, brother, James Foltz and sister, Janine (Roy) Simpson of Pharump, Nevada.

He was preceded in death by a grandson, Jared Foltz and his canine pal, Founder.

Jack obtained his Tool and Die training from NIBCO. He also worked at Selmer. Together with Ed Fergison, he established F and F Grinding Service in the late 60s. After selling the business, Jack went to work at CTS where he retired. Jack enjoyed Historic Preservation and loved his family, his neighborhood and his home. He especially loved his porch where he spent many hours with Founder.

The family wants to thank all the people at The Center for Hospice, especially Terry Trimmer who volunteered every week.

There will be a Celebration of Life at a later date. Memorial donation maybe made to The Center for Hospice Care, 501 Comfort Place, Mishawaka, Indiana 46545 or The Humane Society of Elkhart County, 54687 County Road 19, Bristol, Indiana 46507.
