James W. Forsyth

AGE: 89 • Little Silver

James Wilson Forsyth (89) "Jim" of Little Silver, NJ passed away on Saturday, 7-1-17.

Born on May 5, 1928 at Mrs. Gunther's Nursing Home in Asbury Park, he was the son of James and Ruth Forsyth. He attended Asbury Park High School, The Gunnery School, and graduated from Rutgers Preparatory School. He graduated from Brown University in 1950. After his service in the army, he received his Master's degree from the Wharton School of Business in Philadelphia. It was here that he met his wife, Jane.

Jim worked for the Harris Trust and Savings Bank of Chicago, in New York City, in the municipal bond department.

Jim loved spending his time both at the Jersey Shore and at the Adirondack Mountains. He loved the ocean, music, his gardens, his gator, his dogs and above all, his family. Jim's love of storytelling and quick wit will be missed by all.

Jim was predeceased by his parents, his daughter, Elizabeth Steupert, and his brother, William Forsyth. He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Jane; his children, Anne van Hemmen (Rik) of Fair Haven, Brandy Deatly (Bill) of Summit, James Forsyth of Saranac Lake, and Douglas Forsyth (Heather) of Colts Neck; his eleven grandchildren - Jake, Hannah, & Abby van Hemmen, Klara, Charlie, & Martha Steupert, Corianne & Tad Deatly, and Nolan, Skyler, and James Forsyth; his brother, Donald Forsyth (Pat), his sister-in-law, Rosemary Forsyth; and his son-in-law, Juergen Steupert.

A service will be held at OId Tennent Church on July 15, 2017 at 10:00 am.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made, in his memory, to The Wild Center, 45 Museum Drive, Tupper Lake, NY, 12986.
