John Forsman, Jr.
John left his cancered vessel on 1/25/21. He leaves behind myself (his sister), brother-in-law, Brian Allum, loved nephew, Trevor Allum, special Aunt Kathryn Ann Richardson, and ‘his boys’. Along with other family, Linda Heine, Tom and Phyllis Forsman, Peter and Lea Forsman, Ed Richardson and many cousins. He also leaves behind a multitude of loving and supportive family of friends too numerous to name.
John had a great life living on Wilbur Rd. filled with little league, soccer, Cub Scouts, Altar boy, BHS marching band, choir, coaching softball, folk group, Youth Minister, Merrimack On Stagers, Williamstown, K of C, working with the “Inappropriate’ play, suffering Jets fan, infamous poker nights and having way too much fun with his friends!
John also worked at Rustler, Johnson and Son, Deep Run Lodge, and most recently Richmond Limousine, to name a few.
Music was a big part of his life and he loved all kinds! My favorite memory is of us singing along to my mom’s ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ record. I was so glad we were able to see it together with the original Jesus actor.
There is nothing like a brother and John was ‘the okayest’ He knew me too well!
He was met in heaven with open arms by our parents, John and Richie Forsman, Oma and Opa, Granny and Grandpa, Denise, Ronnie, John and Kathy.
John loved his nurses! And I can’t tell you how grateful we all are for the care his oncology and hospice nurses gave him. Please consider a donation in John’s memory to Capital Caring for their devotion and compassionate care so that we may pay if forward.
RIP ‘little’ bro
