On August  11,  2021  Gerald  Dennis Forsythe  (Gary)  went  home  to  be  with  the Lord.  He  was  born  on  February  21,  1943  in Napa,  California  to  Gerald  and  Irene Forsythe  -  both  who  were  followers  of Jesus  Christ.  His  father  was  a  poultry rancher,  and  it  was  on  that  farm  that  Gary learned  a  strong  work  ethic.    In  his  pre-teen years  he  accepted  Jesus  as  his  Lord  and Savior  but  like  the  song,  his  heart  was prone  to  wander,  and  yet  through  his rebellion  the  grace  of  the  Lord  never  left him. He  is  survived  by  his  wife  of  22  years, Vivian  Forsythe.  In  his  words  “she  is awesome  and  I  can  tell  you  she  has  been the  wind  beneath  my  wings  for  those  years!   When  I  would  hit  a  low  spot  she  was  there to  remind  me  of  how  blessed  we  were. Truly  a  Proverbs  31  wife”.   His  two  children,  Todd  Anthony  Forsythe (wife  Cheryl)  and  Tiffany  Ann  (Forsythe) Thomas  (husband  Michael),  who  are  all strong  Christians  and  successful  in  their respective  careers,  as  well  as  his  five grandchildren,  Matthew  Thomas,  Brian Thomas,  Cole  Forsythe,  Jake  Forsythe  and Richard  Thomas.  Gary  believed  in  praying for  his  children  and  grandchildren  daily  and often  expressed  his  joy  and  peace  knowing one  day  they  will  join  him  at  the  feet  of Jesus  for  eternity. Most  of  his  career  was  centered  around  the automotive  field  with  a  brief  career  in  Law Enforcement  as  a  motor  officer  in  Southern California.  After  moving  to  central  Texas,  he became  a  member  of  Grace  Baptist  Church in  Salado.  Gary  had  previously  belonged  to and been an officer  for  the  Christian Motorcyclists  Association,  Black  Sheep Harley  Davidsons  for  Christ  and  Central Texas  Harley  Owners  Group.  Belonging  to these  groups  allowed  Gary  to  combine  what he  loved  so  much  -  Jesus  and  riding  his Harley.    He  was  truly  loved  and  respected by  so  many  and  will  be  missed  greatly  by his  family  and  friends. A celebration  of  life  is  scheduled  for Saturday,  August  28th  at  2:00  pm  at  Grace Baptist  Church,  5798  FM-2484,  Salado, Texas  76571.
