Forrest Warren AdamsJuly 10, 1934 ~ April 20, 2017 (age 82)
Our Beloved Dad and Grampa, Forrest Warren Adams, passed away Thursday April 20, 2017, Surrounded with love.
He loved the outdoors. He was planning huntin' and fishin' trips to the day he died. He loved a fresh breeze and sunshine on his face.
He was always the prepared one. If you needed something or there was an emergency. You were lucky to have Forrest there, cause sure as shootin', he had what was needed.
Forrest was a Jolly old Elf, with his blue sparkly eye's and round belly that jiggled like a bowl full of jelly when he laughed out his loud jolly, robust HOHOHO! He brought joy to many many children, when he put on his red Santa suit. He loved to Party and everyone was always invited and in lieu of gifts he asked for donations to one of his favorite charities, which usually involved children in need.
He was always very conscientious of others and would literally give you the shirt off his back. He would have his shirt off and handing it too you before anyone asked. He was kind and generous to the end.
Forrest loved The United States of America and quit school to join the Armed services at 17. He played many important parts in keeping our country safe. He was Brilliant in book learning and had and even sharper common sense. He earned the respect of all those he served with. He had the best stories and knew many historical figures, some of whom we celebrate to this day with their own holiday. He was a truly fascinating man.
Forrest was joyfully greeted in heaven by 3 lovely wives, parents, grandparents, Children, and many other loved ones. He left many children and grandchildren behind whom he loved dearly, and who loved him in return.
Our dad would feel so honored if, in lieu of flowers, you would choose to donate to the Principal's pantry at Grovecrest Elementary in Pleasant Grove Utah or to The Book of Mormon fun of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
