George A. Foster, Jr

George A. Foster, Jr, known to friends as “Scorpio” or “Scorp”, passed away on September 2, 2018, at the age of sixty-five years.

A native of Ipswich, George attended the University of Maine, graduating with a degree in history. He spent most of his life working in real estate and as a whitewater rafting guide. He was recognized by the State of Maine Senate and House for his nearly twenty years of guiding service, and was acknowledged as one of the first group of individuals who became whitewater guides. George also had a strong affinity for Harley Davidson and WWII history.

Among his friends he was known as the life of the party, a story-teller who could captivate an audience for hours. With his deep voice and bellowing cackle, it was always known when George was in the room. There will be a void now that he is gone. However, he would not want tears shed in his name, but to carry on with festive activities in his remembrance.

He is survived by his son, Ian Foster, and his daughter, Heather Foster both of San Diego, two brothers, Glenn Foster of Newbury and Robert C. Foster and his wife Laura of FL, and a sister, Holly Foster of Ipswich.

Family and friends are cordially invited to attend visiting hours 4 to 7 pm Thursday, September 20 in the Whittier-Porter Funeral Home, 6 High Street, Ipswich.
