Longtime Eagle Valley/Vail resident John Patrick Forsyth, 57, died Oct 25 in a fire at his home on Green Mountain Drive in Eagle.
He was born June 19, 1953, in Boulder to Joseph A. Forsyth and Theresa B. Forsyth. The family moved to Broomfield in 1962, he attended Nativity of Our Lord grade school and Cathedral High School in Denver.

His passion was fishing. He also loved hunting. He had a terrifically dry sense of mumor and a twinkle in his eyes when he smiled, his family said. He was loved and appreciated by his friends and family.
He was preceded in death by his parents, his wife, Kata, who died in 1988, his wife, Sally ordelheide, who died in 2003, and his sister, Mary Forsyth Ong, who died in 1997.
His family and friends offer heartfelto thanks to the firefighters of the Greater Eagle Fire Department, Gypsum Fire Department and Eagle River Fire Department who tirelessly battled the fire at his home.
Interment was Wednesday at Green Mountain Cememtery in Boulder. A memorial gathering will be held in the Eagle area at a later date.
