James "Jim" Forrest

James "Jim" Leonard  Forrest , 75, went to be with the Lord on May 28th, 2021,  with his family by his side in Coeur d’ Alene. Idaho.

Jim was born June 23rd, 1945, in Agawam, Massachusetts to James and Lorraine (LaValley) Forrest. He worked on and raced dragsters. In his younger years he was the definition of “peddle to the metal”.

Jim had a love for sail boats, RV’s, camping, and fishing . However, there was no greater love than the love of his life and  amazing wife, Gayle Forrest. He loved his beautiful daughters Teal McDevitt, Andrea Thompson, Tina Thompson,  Angela Unruh, Kelly Arroyo, Kim Forrest and his son Sean Forrest.

Jim didn’t only touch his family’s hearts,  He made friends all over the United States. As he settled in Coeur d' Alene, he became a part of the community by owning his own home repair business, a health business, and finally a jerky business, he enjoyed being his own boss.  All the way up until his passing, he was the helping hand you needed.  We will forever hold him close to our hearts. We will meet again. We’ll love and cherish you forever.

The Memorial Service will be held  Saturday June 19th at 11:00 AM at Mountain Lakes Bible church, 2215 N. 7th Street Coeur d' Alene, ID.
