WESTFORD – Keith David Foskitt, 54, of Westford MA, passed away on July 11, 2021, after ongoing health issues. Keith was born March 3, 1967 and grew up in Billerica MA, the son of Gordon and Geraldine (Proctor) Foskitt.
He graduated from Shawsheen Technical School for design drafting, and was employed by Abbott Laboratories where he designed surgical equipment (one of his favorite experiences) and blood-glucose meters. He was then employed by BAE Systems where both his drafting and people skills resulted in the opportunity to lead a design team.
In his earlier days Keith enjoyed riding horses. Later he became an avid gardener who loved to create his relaxing backyard oasis. He enjoyed singing tenor in various community choral groups, and unremittingly lived for Broadway musical theatre. He frequented trips to Europe —Switzerland with his husband and dear friends was a favorite, as well as seeing longtime dear friends in England, and husband’s family in Germany. Trips to York and Ogunquit, ME were favorite perennial visits, and Washington D.C. inspired him as a proud American.
He is predeceased by his father and mother, his brother Kenneth of Danville NH and his brother Kevin of Moultonborough NH. He is survived by husband Jeffrey Gage of Westford MA, sister Karen Foskitt of Lowell MA, and loving and caring cousins, relatives, friends and co-workers, too numerous to list.
Memorial gifts may be made to his favorite charity, the MSPCA.
