February 23, 1930 - April 26, 2022
Foster Altenbaumer, age 92 of Ashdown, AR was born to Clyde and Leona Altenbaumer. He was a lifetime resident of Little River County and was employed by Foreman Cement Company for 33 years, 3 months and 3 days. He was a dedicated, hard-working man that only missed work a handful of days during all those years. He was also a devout Christian and faithful member for 60 years at the Ashdown Holiness Church which he helped build for the ground up. He was a godly man that raised his family serving the Lord. He lived by example and taught us how to love the Lord and to love our neighbors as ourselves. He delighted in making people laugh and had an old saying for just about anything. He loved to fish and hunt with the grandsons. When they asked him if he wanted to go, he would say, “where and what time!” He loved his family to the fullest and would do anything for them at any time, day or night! Even if he was in the middle of something, we have seen him drop what he was doing just to help someone in need. He truly had a servant’s heart whether it was being the maintenance man at the church or at the youth camp that we attended in Russellville, AR or even at one of our homes. He was always there to lend a hand. He loved greatly and was greatly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Foster is preceded in death by his parents, his loving wife, Mary Jean Altenbaumer, of 61 years, his only son, Randy Altenbaumer, two brothers, Truman Altenbaumer and Willard Altenbaumer, one sister, Audra Faye Delorey. Those left to cherish his memory are his two daughters, Ronda J. Arnold (Ronnie) of Ashdown and Laura (Leon) Springer of Ashdown, six grandchildren, Randy and Tabatha Gibson, Brent Gibson, April and Caleb McElhannon, Scott and Anna Springer, Ryan and Neeli Springer, Jared Springer and 17 great-grandchildren. He was also an uncle to several nieces and nephews. Visitation will be Thursday, April 28, 2022 from 6:00 – 8:00 at Madden Funeral Home in Ashdown. Funeral services will be Friday, April 29, 2022 at 10:00 at the Ashdown Holiness Church with Rev. Luke Shuecraft, Rev. David Clement and Rev. David Harrison officiating. Burial will be held at Ashdown Cemetery in Ashdown.
