Charlie Kenneth “Ken” Foster, age 80, went home to be with his Lord on Saturday, September 14, 2019. Ken was born on May 31, 1939 in Murfreesboro, Tennessee to the late Charlie B. Foster and Louise Henard Foster. Ken was a graduate of Central High School, class of 1958. He served in the United States Army from 1958 to 1962. He married his life-long sweetheart, Alice Faye Bullard on August 1, 1959.

Bro. Ken retired from Dixie Graphics, Inc., in Nashville, after 42 years. While working in Nashville, he worked with the homeless; holding morning devotions in his work parking lot. In 1984, he was awarded the Broadway Merchants Special Citizen Award and was dubbed the “Parking Lot Preacher”. 

Bro. Ken was ordained as a minister in 1980 and served in a number of churches, in different roles. 

Bro. Ken was instrumental in the merger of Riverview Baptist Church and Fair Havens Independent Baptist Church over 12 years ago. He became a Loyal member of the Fair Havens Independent Baptist Church where he often preached, taught Sunday school, and served as a Deacon.  He will be greatly missed as a Leader and a loyal friend. He was always ready to share his wisdom and knowledge that the Lord blessed him with. 

Bro. Ken Foster worked diligently on painting the three crosses after the merger.
