Forrest leaves behind his daughter Cheryl and her husband Jeff Brandal and grand daughters Sarah, Christina, Mary, Tanya ,and Heather and his great grandson Sean.

    I'm sorry for your loss. I only met Forrest in the last couple of weeks of his life while my mother was in rehab therapy. He told me briefly about the love of his life and how he missed her, and Alaska, where I grew up. It seemed that he knew my father, who was also at Elmendorf during his time there. I would have liked to know more about Forrest. My heart goes out to you all.
