Julian was born on April 26, 1942, in Red Level, Alabama, to the late Clarence and Vada Foshee. He graduated from Andalusia High School in 1960 and married Bobbie Ann DuPree in March of 1962.

He is survived by his beloved wife of 59 years, Bobbie Ann Foshee of Fort Myers, Florida; son, Gray Foshee (Shelly) of Fort Myers; daughter, Melanie Geenen (Jeffrey) of Knoxville, Tennessee; and grandchildren, Brit Foshee (Kelly) of Fort Myers, Quinton Foshee (Rebekah) of Fort Myers, Jeret Foshee (Dorie) of Perry, Florida, Micah Foshee (Megan) of Bluffton, South Carolina, Hannah-Michelle Foshee of Fort Myers, Rachel Foshee of Fort Myers, Peter Geenen of Knoxville and Bruce McGill Foshee of Fort Myers; and eight great-grandchildren.

Julian was employed by Harper Brothers, a road construction company, for over 45 years as a maintenance supervisor. He then worked for APAC Florida, Inc., until his retirement in 2012 as a consultant. Julian attended McGregor Baptist Church until he and his wife helped plant Cypress Lake Baptist Church in Fort Myers where he led the music and taught Sunday school. He had a great passion for teaching God’s word and carried that with him into the nursing homes where he resided the last six years of his life.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, June 19, at 11 a.m. EST, at City Gate Ministries, 1735 Jackson Street, Fort Myers, FL 33901 with Pastor David Pleasant officiating.
