Beloved husband, brother, uncle and friend, David will be remembered as a librarian extraordinaire. He grew up in western Pennsylvania, attended college at Muskingum University in Ohio, and earned a Master’s degree in Library Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He worked in college and university libraries and, through library networks, helped libraries to automate.
David loved trains and rode many in the U.S., Canada and Europe. A cat lover since a child, there were many furry companions along the way. He loved acapella choirs, organ music, and cathedrals. He volunteered for many organizations, including Northwest Dharma Association, Olympia Centennial Train Station, and the Panorama Library Association.
David is survived by his wife, Kathleen Forsythe of Lacey, Washington; sister, Jean Keys of Murrysville, Pennsylvania; brother, Bud Forsythe of Seattle, Washington; and many nieces and nephews. All are going to miss his gentle spirit.
At David’s request, there will be no service.
Memorial donations may be made to the Panorama Library Association, 1751 Circle Lane SE, Lacey, WA 98503.
