Timothy Orin Forbes

Timothy Orin Forbes, 80, passed away peacefully at his home in Cypress, Texas on August 26, 2021.
Born in Nevada Iowa to Phyllis and Harry Forbes on August 31, 1940
Graduated from Nevada High School in 1958
Graduated from Humboldt Technical School with a degree in Traffic Management. He worked at Great Northern Oil Refinery in South St. Paul using this education to put himself through the University of Minnesota graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Business Management.
During this time, he became engaged and married Alberta Weinzierl from Ely Minnesota on June 16, 1962. The next year, they became parents of their first child, Cheryl Lynn Forbes. He graduated from college in March 1966, and the following month they welcomed their son, Michael Timothy Forbes.
In May 1966 after graduation, he took a job with Union Carbide in Industrial Relations in South Charleston, West Virginia. Their third child, Scott Matthew, was born nine years later in Marietta, Ohio.
After many years and many locations, he retired at age 67, and we moved from Salt Lake City back to Texas, this time in Cypress. We’ve been in Cypress now for 13 wonderful years with all the children living in the area.
Tim had been ill with Parkinson’s dementia for a few years with a slow decline in health. We are going to miss him more than we can say but he passed peacefully and in no pain.
Those left to cherish his loving memory are his wife Alberta, daughter Cheryl, her husband Neil Yaroch; their daughter Stephanie and her son, Asher; daughter Madison and her husband Jared Campbell; son Mike and his wife Sarah, and their children Jacob and Lily; son Scott and his wife Alicia; brother Joe and his wife Kathy; sister-in-law Annette, and many nieces and nephews.
He is preceded in death by father Harry Forbes, mother Phyllis Forbes, brothers Tom and Dan, and his grandparents.
Tim was a devoted family man, never missing an opportunity to be by Alberta’s side, or at any of his children’s activities. He was an avid reader, and watched and followed many sports throughout the seasons. He will always be remembered as a quiet, gentle, and supportive father, husband, and friend.
We want to thank Heart to Heart Hospice for their care. All were so loving and caring.
