Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Chris Foreman, age 64, of Columbus, Georgia passed away on July 17, 2021 while surrounded by his closest loved ones. He was born May 24, 1957 in Dawson, Georgia and was a member of the Kendrick High class of 1975. Chris loved his children dearly and built a legacy of hard work through his passion for people and their cars at Foreman Brake & Powertrain. He was incredible at his job and was one of the best driveline specialists in Columbus with an amazing wealth of knowledge. Chris was one of the go-to guys in his industry … if all else fails, “call Chris!”
Chris was a spunky redhead that loved football (Go Dawgs and Wreck ‘Em Tech!), baseball (Go Braves!), and racing. He always referred to himself as somewhat of a hybrid – “an intelligent redneck; a country boy mixed with a city slicker.” He was a huge Jeopardy fan and often knew most of the answers. He was always told he should go on the show. He also liked to torture his children with the History Channel and the movie, “The Last of the Mohicans.” Chris loved all the new technology and loved having the “latest and greatest” gadgets.
Chris always loved going for a ride and could spend the day on a ride out to “the country,” home of his family in Webster county. He was a great storyteller and loved to reminisce about the times he spent in his youth running around with his cousins who were more like siblings.
Chris was blessed to share his life for the last 12 years with his “girl Friday” Pam Dune. He would often tell people that she was the nicest person on this planet. Everyone could attest to the fact that she made him want to be a better person. He is preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Newton and Agnes Foreman; his maternal grandparents, Max and Irene Alston; and his father, Kenneth Foreman. Chris is survived by the greatest love of his life, Pam Dune; mother, Maxine Foreman; sons Brian Foreman and Tim Foreman; daughter Jennifer Thrower (David); grandchildren, Aiden Lytle, Kaley Foreman, and Harper Foreman; sisters Rachel Tucker (Jerry) and Cathy Foreman; several nieces and nephews; his fur grandbabies, Buddy, Dian, Piza, Prince, and Pepper; and many beloved family and friends.
The family will be receiving guests on Saturday, July 24th at 2pm Eastern Time at Christ Community Church located at 4078 Milgen Road, Columbus, GA 31907. There will be a memorial service to follow at 3pm at the same location. As Chris was never a fan of “monkey suits”, please come as you are in casual dress.
