Jeffrey Andrew Foltz of Lincoln University

Jeffrey Andrew Foltz, 52, of Lincoln
University, died Wednesday, Dec. 15, in the Paoli Hospital.

Born in 1958, Jeff’s life was one filled with
love and laughter. He was born in
Chester to John and Norma Foltz of Ogden. He attended Holy Saviour Parish
School and graduated from Saint James High School.

After high school, Jeff attended the Florida
Institute of Technology and then began a career selling consumer electronics. At
age 40 he returned to college at the University of Delaware and received a
Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science a few years later. He then earned
a Masters degree in Animal Science and joined the Delaware Biotechnological Institute
as a Research Associate. An avid animal lover throughout his life, Jeff will be
remembered for his volunteer work on behalf of homeless pets.

Anyone who knew Jeff appreciated his wry
sense of humor and the twinkle in his eye. He enjoyed life, and often found himself laughing so hard
that tears ran from his eyes. A
lover of all music, Jeff especially enjoyed mixing up a margarita, sitting on
the front porch, and listening to Jimmy Buffett tunes. As “parrotheads” he and his wife Wendi
attended many Buffett concerts with friends. He also loved to travel to warm places and he and Wendi
would most often be found for a week or two each February in Key West, Fla.

At home, Jeff was rarely seen without his
much loved dog Trixie by his side.
They took multiple walks daily, stopping to talk to everyone they
passed. He also had two cats —Dorian
Gray, a blind rescue kitten who adored him, and Fuzzy.

Jeff was predeceased by his loving parents
John and Norma Foltz. He is
survived by his wife Dr. Wendi Lee Foltz and his brother and sister-in-law Jim
and Pam Foltz, of Chadds Ford. He
will also be much missed by his wife’s parents Dennis and Carolyn Clark of West
Grove, who loved him like a son, and his brother-in-law Stephen Clark, of Taiwan.
In addition, he leaves behind a nephew, Jason Foltz of Corvallis, Ore. and a niece,
Stephanie Johnson of Newark, Del.
He will also be much missed by his four grandnephews and nieces whom he
loved dearly, John, Henry, Ava, and Julia.

Jeff was an organ donor. Those left behind are taking some
solace from the fact that his “gift of life” will help others to live on.

A memorial service celebrating Jeff’s life
will be held 11 a.m. Tuesday Jan. 4, at the Chandler Funeral Home of
Wilmington, 2506 Concord Pike, Wilmington, DE, 19803. Family and friends may visit with the family from 10-11 a.m.
before the service. Interment will
be held privately.

As a wonderful way to remember Jeff’s love
and kindness towards all of God’s creatures, contributions may be made to the
Delaware Humane Association 701 A Street, Wilmington, DE 19801.
