I was sorry to read of Forrest's passing in our Lycoming Magazine. After college, several of us shared a "mansion" together in Mosquito Valley, outside of Williamsport. We had a great time living together and I really enjoyed having Forrest as a roommate. Through him, I gained a sincere appreciation for photography and music. He was a very special guy.

Just learned with sorrow of Forrest's death when I searched for him to tell him of another death, that of his friend Dave Neufer, who died November 16, 2011. My husband and I knew and loved Forrest dearly - he was a classmate at Lycoming College. We shared many a conversation and a laugh. His intellect,wit, sense of humor, charm, kindness and compassion graced our days. So very sorry to hear of his passing. Certainly he must have touched many in his life. Farewell, friend.

I have been very shocked when I read that Forrest died. I met him in North Carolina, when I was as a visiting professor at Wake Forest University. He was a wonderdul person, he will be always in my mind.

We were deeply saddened to learn that Forrest passed away. We had so many wonderful times, from graduate school at UF, to watching the Gators play in bowl games during holiday visits. We will miss our dear friend. Our sincerest sympathies go out to the family.

Just found out that Forrest passed away. Forrest was a great guy, I have fond memories of the time we spent in graduate school and the occasional beer we had at scientific meetings thereafter. You will all be in my thoughts.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I am so sorry for your loss. I first met Forrest during his days as a doctoral student at the University of Florida. For many years thereafter, we would see each other regularly at psychology conferences. It was a great treat to spend time with Forrest, and I always looked forward to it. I will cherish these memories. -- Mike Perone West Virginia University

I was so sorry to hear about Johnny. I know you all will miss him terribly. He was always so sweet to all of us Leslie's friends when we saw him.
Mike Russell left a message on August 16, 2011:
My oldest friend now rests, safely tucked away in the Good Lord's Arms. You touched me much, my brother; teaching me of lives and worlds I would never have known, to guitar blues in the dorm room 'till the wee hours, to the incredible photographs in my wedding album. As these memories are passed to my family, your impact upon this world will live forever. Vaya con Dios, amigo. Till we meet again.

I have wonderful memories of Forrest. On our senior trip I rode in his brand new Z28 he was so proud of it listening to Reelin in the Years. I haven't seen him for years, but I'll never forget his sweet personality and his contagious laugh. I'm am so sorry for your loss...Sharon A. Smith

Johnny will always hold a special place in my heart. From the time he and Mike were dressed as 'almost' twins, he was one of 'my' boys, also. I will miss him, too. Love, Jane
