George Edward (Ted) Forshner
The Guest Book is expired.
December 20, 1946 - October 14, 2012
Ted was born and raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan by his mother Helene Forshner and grandparents George and Ina Hills, who have all predeceased him. He came to Powell River in 1970 with his wife and infant son. He later had two more sons. Ted worked in the Powell River mill until his retirement. Camping with his family, in his younger years, at Haslam Lake was what he enjoyed doing. He was very involved with the C.B. radios during that era. And in later years he got into building and flying radio controlled planes. He was actively involved with the genealogy club until his death, and was instrumental in getting all the records computerized. Ted is survived and will be missed by his three sons, Trevor of Port Coquitlam, Travis of Powell River and Troy of Calgary as well as three grandchildren, Christipher and Cassandra of Port Coquitlam and Georgina of Powell River. Ted will also be missed by his ex-wife and lifelong friend Sandy Graham of Powell River. In the last few years Ted also made contact with his extended family of half brothers and sisters from Saskatchewan whom he was in constant contact with via the internet. Ted fought his last battle with lung problems and left us peacefully after a few days in a coma. He is now at rest. We will all miss him. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Powell River Stroke Recovery Club would be appreciated. There will be a time for visitation and viewing on Monday, October 22 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Stubberfield Chapel. A celebration of life will be held on Wednesday, October 24 at 1:30 p.m. also at Stubberfield Chapel. Arrangements entrusted to Stubberfield Funeral Home Ltd.
