Danny L. Foster, 77, a former Loudonville resident, died peacefully at his home in Sarasota, FL on Tuesday, October 14, 2014. Danny was born in Loudonville, on August 20, 1937, and was the son of the late Carl and Thelma Foster. He was a 1955 graduate of Loudonville High School and shortly thereafter joined the US Navy where he became interested in meteorology. He ventured on assigned treks to the Arctic and Antarctica where he was involved in international meteorological research. In November, 1962, the goal of a lifetime was achieved when Danny became the first human to arrive in Vostok, the coldest place on earth. Three Australians, one American (Danny), and a New Zealander, traveled over 900 miles of uncharted territory known as the Arctic Plateau. A book entitled "The Coldest Place on Earth" by Robert Thomson detailed their expedition where temperatures reached 100 degrees below zero.

Danny went on to earn a Bachelorís Degree in Engineering from the University of Michigan and served for most of his career as head of Overseas Operations for the National Weather Service, NOAA. In that position he traveled throughout the world assisting other nations to take the much needed weather observations which were critical for predicting weather in the United States, particularly hurricane forecasting, especially in the days before satellite imaging. He was well respected throughout the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Africa, receiving many honors for his vital work.

In addition, Danny personally mentored others, both overseas and in the NWS, providing higher education for select individuals who later became leaders in their countries. He served as Chairman of the Geneva-based World Meteorological Organizationís Technical Assistance Program for many years and was instrumental in coordinating agreements between nations. Danny was well loved by his colleagues as well as heads of nations throughout the world and will be sorely missed by the nations and international organizations he helped.

Beyond his professional career, he was an accomplished pianist and avid Ohio State football fan.

Danny is survived by his wife of 47 years, Lois Grim Foster; 1 brother, James Richard Foster of Mansfield; 5 nieces: Kathy Hartshorne (Michael) Baldner of Loudonville; Linda (Dr. Carlos) McFarlane, Judy Yohman of Mansfield, Erin (Michael) Barnhouse, and Jennifer Himes; 4 nephews: James (Kelly) Hartshorne of Dublin, Ed (Pam) Foster of Mansfield, Douglas Grim and Gibson Grim of Dalton; and the family dog, Corky. He was predeceased by his parents; a sister, Kathleen Foster Hartshorne; a brother, William C. Foster; and a nephew, Toby Grim.

Memorial services will be held in Loudonville at a later date. Memorial contributions may be made to Tidewell Hospice or The Humane Society of the donor's choice. Condolences may be sent to the family at Loisfoster7verizon.net.
