In 1984, he married his beloved wife, Bonnie Alcorn Foley. He has been a positive mentor and is a true friend to his stepson, Kurt Alcorn.

His granddaughter, Kelly Marie Monahan, who is now a doctor, he was very proud of her.

His brother James Foley and sister-in-law, Virginia from Keller, Texas. They are the most wonderful people on Earth; Dave was so proud of them. They are truly “Angels” from Texas. Additional survivors include a daughter-in-law, Shelly Schipper Foley of Clinton; brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Bill and Barbara Rowland of Cedar Rapids; sister-in-law, Joan Lawrence of Camanche; sister-in-law, Donnis Lawrence of Santa Fe, New Mexico; and sister-in-law, Peggy Lawrence of North Fort Myers, Florida; and nieces and nephews.

He will be in our hearts. Forever.
