Michael (Mike) Richard Forsyth


Michael beloved husband, father, and grandfather passed away at his home unexpectedly on September 21, 2021 in Sun City West, Arizona, at the age of 78.
Mike was born March 19, 1943 in Salt Lake City Utah. Mike was the youngest of four children born to Alma and Violet (Sorensen) Forsyth.
Mike was preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by his wife, Nadene (Morgan); children, Shara (Brett) Monik, Michael II, Jonathan, and Amanda; his grandson Ryker; siblings, Alma (Bud), David, and Bonnie (Higby); and step-children, Ray Bloxham, Dennis (Shelly) Bloxham, and Leslie Bloxham.
Mike was a private and humble man who is not easily summarized. Because of his private and humble nature the highlights of his life are only known to a few. Mike was intelligent, reasonable, affable, talented, and he had a true engineering mind. He led a life of wonderful accomplishments.
When Mike retired he and Nadene and his two beloved shih tzus traveled extensively in their RV. When they moved to Sun City West, AZ in 2014 they joined the RV Club. He got so involved that he was vice president for two years and even led several RV caravan trips.
Mike was a loving, supportive, and giving father to his children and step-children. He will be terribly missed.
