Forest and his late wife, Lucille, were the parents of Eddie, Carolin, Jerry, Jeannetee, Sherry and Larry. There are several grandchildren and great-grandchildren who will miss him. He and his present wife had lived in Kellerton, having a business there some of the time. We send condolences to the family.
