Marlon Kearney Foster passed away on Monday, October 12, 2020, at the age of 75. He was born on Wednesday, November 22, 1944, in Killian, Louisiana.

Kearney was a loving husband, married 55 years to the love of his life, best friend and he would argue, his better half, Paulette Hebert Foster.

A protective and strong father to his three kids. A playful grandfather who loved spending time with his grandkids and great-grandkids at the hunting camp riding the side by side. A giving fellow who never met a stranger and always made you feel special.

Kearney helped so many in his career with the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office. He was well known and respected through all parishes. Kearney served 33 years with the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office as Chief of Detectives and 2 years with the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office as Chief of Detectives.

He was a resident of Springfield, Louisiana.
