Kris Gerald Foco

Kris age 66, loving father and brother, passed away Saturday, April 6, 2024 in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. He was born on June 21, 1957 in Bay City, Michigan to the late Gerald & Elizabeth (Pierson) Foco. Kris was raised in Pinconning, Michigan. He moved to Colorado where he met and married the love of his life, Katherine Jean Krutsch on October 17, 1981. She predeceased him on April 8, 2021.

Kris worked as an Excavating Engineer. He loved his work. If you visited him on his job site, he would be grinning from ear to ear. He was fun and loving with a laugh like no other and was always a joy to be around. Kris loved his yard, planting flowers and sitting outside with a cold beer as the sun went down. He also took great pride in his cooking ability. When he talked about the food he cooked, you could almost taste it. Kris loved to fish and every time he told his fish stories, the fish got bigger. Most of all he loved his family and his family loved him and he will be dearly missed.

Surviving are his children; Katherine (Katie) Foco and Gerald (Jerry) Foco.

Stepdaughters; Crystal Slaughter and Amy Slaughter.

Boo Boo (English Bull Dog) his other son.

Sisters; Denise (Boyd) Klenk, Pamela (Scott) Hendrickson, Cindy (Daniel) Griego

Several nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles and many many friends.
