Foe honorably served his country as an M.P. with the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War. While serving, Foe was a gold glove boxing champion in his weight class. 

Foe was employed at Frigidaire for most of his life climbing his way up to district manager. For work, Foe would travel around the country and even won salesman of the year.

Foe was also a member of the Elkhart Moose Lodge 599 and VFW Post 360 in Osceola. You could find him every Friday night at Mr.G’s.
