Obituary for Glenn Forsyth

Glenn Thomas Forsyth, 75 of Westminster, Massachusetts passed away on March 2nd, 2024, at Brookdale Skilled Nursing Facility in Tiverton, Road Island.

Glenn was born in Concord Massachusetts on December 1st, 1948. He was the second child of the late Lloyd A. Forsyth and Eileen D. (Quinn) Forsyth. He was raised in Sudbury, Massachusetts and graduated from Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School in 1967.

Glenn had a sense of humor that delighted all who knew him. He was a compassionate, giving, loving man who lived his life caring for others. He loved his family with his whole heart and treated his nieces and nephews as his own children. Glenn spent two years in the United States Navy on the USS Intrepid during the Vietnam War. He was very proud of his service in the military. After his service, Glenn worked filling vending machines and delighted his nieces and nephews when he brought them treats. He then drove a bus for the Westminster Public Schools and spent twenty-four years driving a van for the Westminster Counsel on Aging and retired in 2013. He loved to travel, going on cruises and went to Disney many times to visit his favorite character of all time Mickey Mouse. It must be told of Glenn’s love of animals. He was as Gentleman Farmer with a red barn filled with chickens, ducks, a donkey named Andy and a sheep named Clover. He enjoyed training dogs, and his cat Mr. Little kept him company inside his home. His favorite dog in his later years was a Scottish Terrier named Scooter. Glenn insisted he will be buried with Scooter’s urn resting with him in hands.

He is dearly missed by his oldest sister Sharon E. DiBona and her husband Mario N. DiBona, his younger brother Mark L. Forsyth and his wife Valery S. Forsyth, and his youngest sister Gayle E. Morales. He is also missed by his beloved nieces and nephews, Michael, Elizabeth, Amy, Renee, Marie, Jason, Nicholas, Mackenzie, Lucas and their families.
