Howard Lawrence Foulk, 76, USAF vet, Precision Coating Technology worker, flight instructor

By on June 27, 2018

Howard Lawrence Foulk, 76, of Lititz, peacefully entered into his forever rest on June 21, 2018 at Lancaster General Hospital. He was surrounded by his loving family and friends during his last days.

Born in Tennessee, Howard was the son of the late Lawrence A. Foulk and Annie R. Foulk.

He graduated from Solanco High School and entered the United States Air Force. He proudly served in the Air Force for five years, three of those spent overseas in Germany. After his service, Howard returned to Quarryville and also met his wife of 52 years, Lynn Foulk, and moved to Lititz.

He worked for Bulova Technologies and Precision Coating Technology and Manufacturing. He worked at PCTM for over 23 years, retiring in 2017. In his earlier years, Howard shared his passion for flying with others as a part time flight instructor at Lancaster Airport.

In his retirement, Howard enjoyed his time as a member of a local rock and mineral club, and as a deeply devoted grandfather who was active every day in the lives of his grandchildren, directly involved in raising them to be kind humans on this Earth as he did so for his children.

Howard enjoyed hunting and shooting, listening to bluegrass music, and fixing anything that was broken, including the hearts of his loved ones. Jack-of-all-trades, Howard could merely look at something and would immediately know exactly what was wrong with it. “Daddy can do anything.” Most of all, Howard loved his family, friends, and extensive “honorary family,” who will remember him for his incredible kindness and generosity to anyone in need, and the wealth of intelligence admired by all those fortunate enough to have even just met him once. The world, from this day, is a lonelier one.

He is survived by his beloved wife: Lynn; children: Jennifer Whiting of Florida; Ryan, Seth, Erin, Jesse, and Caitlin of Lancaster County; many grandchildren; and dear sister: Martha Brown, also of Lancaster.

He is preceded in death by his parents; and the family’s beloved boxer dog: Casey.

Fly high, Daddy!
