Forrest Fenn wrote his own Epitaph which was published in one of his books, The Thrill of the Chase, copyright 2010, Epilogue, page 147 which reads, "And that's why I wrote my epitaph with such profundity:

"I wish I could have lived to do the things I was attributed to."

A complete biography of Forrest Fenn will be placed here at a later date. In the interim, feel free to Google him to learn more about him and his adventurous life.

NOTE: Forrest told creator of this memorial on October 19, 2017 that he was going to be cremated and that his ashes and the ashes of his beloved wife, Peggy will be placed together. Their ashes will go in a beautiful blue urn that was sitting in the corner of his kitchen at the time Fenn conveyed this information. When doing so, Forrest had a smile he couldn't contain when he finished with, "Peggy liked the top so her ashes will go on top despite who departs first."
