We want to thank the Doctors and nurses at Baptist hospital for their care and kindness toward Forrest and us, his family. I especially want to thank Dr Watford , his attending physician. Not only was he an awesome Doctor, he is also a very kind , loving and thoughtful man . Because of Covid we were not allowed to see Forrest during his last 5 days. It was a nightmare. Dr Watford gave us last words with Forrest by holding his phone to Forrest’s ear. It was the most precious moment and I can not ever thank him enough . That meant everything to his father and me .
Forrest was a unique, kind, generous and loving man . He loved and is loved by so many . I call his life a great success.
In lieu of flowers , we ask you to make a donation in Forrest’s name to the recovery ministry “Most Excellent Way” care of Klondike Church 7201 Klondike Road Pensacola, Florida. 32526 -or- go to “lovepensacola.org”
Or donate to any recovery program or any organization you know Forrest would support . Thank you .

Forrest was so carefree, kind and an absolute joy to be around. I have so many fond memories with him that I wish I could share them all. He was so persuasive and charismatic that he got me to try dip for the first time, instant regret! We shared so many private conversations about life and talked about things we loved, I will forever miss those days. Forrest was the definition of FUN - Bourbon Street, Hurricane parties in Tally, and chillin’ in the Pensacola apt and the Tampa apt. Quarters was our game and we were always good at paying each other back in that. He was the type that never met a stranger! I will never forget the good he brought into my life. I will miss him more than he will ever know. Fly high Forrest!

I had the opportunity to work with Forrest as his manager for a drilling company.
I’ve never met anyone quite as special as Forrest; his work ethic and strength were obvious, but his kindness and earnestness continue to inspire me.
I’m a better person for knowing him. I’m sure everyone who crossed paths with him must feel the same.
We will miss you brother

I worked with Forrest years ago at Prosonic. Forrest was such a nice young man. Whenever he was in the office he was the brightest light in the room. He always had a smile on his face, always positive, funny and just a sweet and gentle soul. Forrest brought a happiness with him wherever he was. Everyone liked Forrest, it just felt good to be around him, you could feel his genuine kindness. I hope knowing that Forrest made a difference to those around him will now bring you some measure of comfort.
