DAVID JASPER FORMAN On February 26, 2013 at Ross Memorial Hospital in Lindsay, peacefully in his 90th year with family Lawrie and Catherine at his side. David was born on a farm at Balsam Lake which is still in the family. He moved to Lindsay with the family and graduated from Lindsay Collegiate and Vocational Institute. He completed his Chemical Engineering degree at the University of Toronto after training as a navigator and pilot with the Air Force. He moved to St. Catharines, where he spent many years working for Cyanamid Canada. He continued flying, owning a plane with a friend. He made weekly trips up to Balsam Lake to look after the family cottage, rental cottages and the farm. Many will remember him walking around with pipe wrenches or making trips to the hardware store in Fenelon Falls. After retiring, he moved back to Lindsay to be closer to family and the cottage, moving into Adelaide Place recently as his health failed. He leaves a number of loving cousins, his brother-in-law Keith, his nieces Lawrie (Ham), Diana and Penny (Alan) and nephews Gary and J.J. (Kim), grandnieces Emily and Amy and grandnephews Geoffrey and Timothy. To some he was Mr. Forman, to some David or Dave, but to many he was "Uncle David" and he will be greatly missed. The family will receive visitors on Saturday, March 2nd from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. at the Stoddart Funeral Home, 24 Mill St., Lindsay, 705-324-3205. A non-denominational service to celebrate David's life will follow at 2:00 p.m. Please join the family afterwards for a reception at the Olympia Restaurant, 106 Kent St. W., Lindsay.
