Frederick William Charles Foote III passed away at his home on Monday, Feb. 28, 2022 after a long battle with cancer. He was born on Jan. 11, 1943, in Baltimore, Md., son of the late Frederick II and Dorothy Elizabeth (Weineger) Foote.

Mr. Foote was a proud veteran, having honorably served in the U.S. Army as a sergeant with the Green Berets. He served three tours of duty in Vietnam, where he was a Heavy Weapons Specialist and Army Medic. Mr. Foote was awarded the purple heart for his service in Vietnam. After his discharge from the Army, his path would lead him to a career with the Social Security Administration, where he advanced to the position of Division Director of Human Resources, retiring after many dedicated years.  In 1999, he married the love of his life, Beverly Shreve Foote and they spent 23 wonderful years together.

Among Mr. Foote’s many interests were being near the water, fishing and boating as often as he could. He enjoyed movies and magazines and was a proud member of the American Legion. Above all, Mr. Foote cherished time spent with his beloved family. He was a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather, and friend, who will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
