Forrest Blue

Guest Book

Not sure what to say?

I got Forrest's autograph when I was a little kid. I know Skip Vanderbundt was there too that day

I knew Forrest, In fact, I played football with him in 8th grade at Ft. Knox, KY. That is where he got his start playing football. He was big and strong than, and ran over me when I tried to be a line backer. We were also in boy scouts together. I have a photo of him at my 13th birthday party. Great Guy! Rest in Peace Big Guy!

RIP---Forrest---a great team mate--- a great friend---your rt. guard,Joe Amico,

My sincere condolences to the Blue family.
As a lifelong 49er fan, I enjoyed Forrest's accomplishments on the field... as a center for the 49ers, the offensive line of which he was the foundation set a record by not allowing a sack of the quarterback all season.
I came to know you personally later in life and found you to be a gentle, forthright person and great diving buddy! We had many great weekends on California's coast.
There are many who cared for you and I know that...

Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.

I am saddened by this news and my prayers and thoughts go out to his family. He was one of my friends at Auburn where I played baseball. I also new Anne Jacobs his first wife. She was a cheerleader. He loved his Corvette almost as much!,, He will be missed by everyone who ever met this gentle giant from Hollywood....Florida! Larry Matson New Orleans

A sweet and gentle guy, his heart as big as he was in every way! I will miss you Blue!
