Arnold Haley Forsyth
July 19, 1935 - May 31, 2018
The family of Arnold Haley Forsyth sadly announces his passing on May 31, 2018. Just as dawn was breaking, he quietly slipped away. His favorite time of day!
Arnold was born to Walter and Margarite Anne (Peggy) on July 19, 1935. He was the eighth child of fourteen of this union. He was also the eldest of the first set of twins, two more sets followed.
Arnold received all his schooling in Lydden (Duperow) and left home in 1949 to go to work in a logging camp in northern B.C. He spent many winters in B.C. coming home in the spring to farm.
He enjoyed fishing, hunting, reading and armchair curling.
Arnold met the love of his life Theresia (Teri) Wagner at her parent’s home and decided that he would be back when she was grown up. He was back and on January 21, 1966 he and Teri were married in North Battleford, Sask. The minister took their last 40 dollars. Thank goodness there was no money left for a choir.
Over the years Arnold and Teri added to their home and hearts, one tiny son Andy and two little boys needing a loving stable home, Tad and Jerry.
One morning in town Arnold met neighbour Bob Wiseman, he and Arnold became friends, sharing a lot of similar qualities. Bob was teaching Arnold Spanish. Bob taught Arnold “El Mano” meaning brother. Adios Amigo!
