Foskett was known for performing in the touring bands led by both Brian Wilson and Mike Love.
Wilson broke his silence on Foskett’s death via Instagram on Monday.
Wilson – “I’m so heartbroken that my dear friend Jeff Foskett has passed. Jeff was always there for me when we toured and we couldn’t have done it without him. Jeff was one of the most talented guys I ever knew. He was a great musical leader and guitarist and he could sing like an angel,” the singer-songwriter penned. “I first met Jeff in 1976 when he knocked on my door in Bel Air and I invited him in, and we were friends ever since. I don’t know what else to say. Love and Mercy to Jeff’s family and friends, we will remember him forever.”
Foskett last posted on social media on March 4th, sharing a video of himself ringing a bell at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston after spending four years in treatment there.
RIP Jeffrey Foskett.
