We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Bach-Yager Funeral Chapel
Harold Foley, 91, of Ashland, passed on to his heavenly home on Tuesday, July 27, 2021 at home surrounded by family.
Memorial services will be at 11:30 AM, Saturday, June 25, 2022 at Rejoice Free Will Baptist Church, 10900 Chapel Hill Road, Columbia, MO.
Harold was born August 6, 1929, in Columbia, the son of Oscar and Aleta Anderton Foley and they preceded him in death. As a man of faith, love, service, and playfulness, he charmed babies and was quick to help others. He served as a builder, a foster dad to over 300 children, and a church youth leader, spiritual mentor, and board member. He loved and delighted in his family. A humble man, he described himself as someone who fills a spot in the choir and doesn’t stand out. But he stood out to many!
Harold was preceded in death by his wife and partner of 63 years, Jane Foley, and is survived by children, Judy Gonnerman and Cheri and David Langaker; four grandchildren, Danielle, Chris, Eric, and Karisha; four great grandchildren, Hadleigh, Breckan, Emelia, and Ave; and his brother, Jim Foley.
He was also preceded in death by a daughter, Rebekah Harrach; grandson, Dustin Gonnerman; and siblings, Leon, Bill, Paul, and Anita.
In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to Center for Women’s Ministries, 1900 N. Providence Road, Suite 210, Columbia, MO 65202.
