My father, John Foskett, who has died aged 78, was a clergyman and pastoral counsellor who worked primarily in churches and hospitals but also in other environments.
He was born in Croydon, south London, the son of Mary (nee Challis), an elocution teacher, and Herbert, a corn factor. He went to Tonbridge school, where, because of his dyslexia, he was taken under the wing of the school chaplain. This association was instrumental in his decision to study theology. He graduated from St Catharine’s College, Cambridge, in 1962.
