Nicholas Foster was loved by all. He was a son, a brother, an uncle, a nephew, a cousin and a friend to many. He had the kindest heart and was always ready to help a person in need. His goofiness brought a smile and laughter to everyone.
He was born in Morris County, where he resided most of his life, attending Whippany Park High School and graduating in 2006. He then attended and graduated from the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art in Dover, NJ. And graduated in 2009.
Nick was known most of all for his love of art. It started at an early age when his mother, entered him into art classes. This was when he discovered his talent for it, which quickly developed into his life’s passion. Whether it was drawing for fun, or on commission, he could sit and sketch for hours without hesitation. Nicholas thrived on the enjoyment of the people he shared his work with.
Another passion of his was spending time with his family. There are many fond memories shared of hiking together though Jockey Hollow and Patriot’s Path. Nick started off strong but usually ended up on the shoulders of his father. From the day his nephew, Collin, was born, Nick took on the role of uncle naturally. He held the little newborn so delicately, as if he was a porcelain doll.
Nicholas is survived by his loving parents Marcia and Robin, stepmother Connie, sisters Victoria and Elizabeth, brother-in-law Michael Haberman, baby nephew Collin, grandmother Pauline Lashley, Barbados, several aunts, uncles, and cousins here in the U.S.A, Canada, England and Barbados. He will also be missed by his lifelong friends including Justin Bruce Rame, Alex Koelmel, Linda Mennitt, Susan Diederichs, Diane Revzin, as well as countless others who had an impact on his life.
Please hold the memory of him strong in your heart. Cherish the best parts of Nick with us each day. He filled our lives with compassion, laughter, and love.
You will forever be loved and missed, Nicholas.
