Forrest Richard VanArsdall RIP 

1944 - 2018 Obituary


Forrest Richard VanArsdall, called Richard by his family, died peacefully in his home on January 13 of this year. He was born to Forrest J. and Aline VanArsdall on August 31, 1944 in Terre Haute, Indiana. In 1953, the family relocated to California and lived most of the next 25 years in Ojai. Forrest graduated from Nordhoff High School in 1963 and attended Ventura College.

In 1978, Forrest, along with much of the family, relocated to Cottonwood in Northern California. Forrest led a quiet, mostly solitary life. Among his pleasures in life were reading great literature, listening to classical music and studying chess strategies. He had no children but he loved being "Uncle Richard" to his niece and two nephews.

Forrest is survived by his sister Janet Fuls (husband David), their children Brian Fuls and Jennifer Wohletz (husband Tony); his brother Jim VanArsdall (wife Caryl), their son Greg VanArsdall (wife Amberly) and their two sons Remy and Finn.

*Webmaster's note: Not only did our classmate Jim VanArsdall's brother Forest die recently but 3 weeks prior his mother Aline died. Our sincere condolences.

Mini Reunions

Your reunion committee has set up  a new way of connecting. When out of town classmates are planning to visit Ojai, we request that classmate to notify us so that we can set up an evening or day gathering. Simply send a notice to Mark Hall,Blair Cooper or Larry Kennedy. We will send out an "announcement" to come and meet our classmate. Once we get responses we will set up a party at a restaurant or residence. It is very informal. Our first opportunity is coming soon when Blair Cooper visits. I will send it on a separate email.
