Foster, Rick E., Jr., 74, Richard E. "Rick" Foster, Jr., a name whose contribution to local track and field will long resonate, has completed his final race to the finish line with dignity and humility, much as he lived his life. Rick passed away on October 22, 2018 in Santa Ana, CA. Rick was the owner of Cal Track Reconditioning in Fountain Valley, CA for over 20 years. Rick was more than just a proprietor of this track and field equipment concern. He was a mentor of the track and field community and served as Track and Field coach at Edison High School in Huntington Beach. His dedication to the sport of Track and Field was preceded by his own accomplishments as a lauded pole vaulter at his own Texas high school as a youth. Rick's contribution and dedication to the track and field community is incomparable as he blurred the lines between equipment and athlete to achieve championship results. Rick served honorably in the United States Navy. Rick is preceded in death by his parents, Richard E. Foster, Sr. and Sybil Foster. He will be missed by his many friends in Hawaii, Texas, and California.
