Forrest Allen Wennermark was born on Oct. 8, 1947, the son of Herman and Phyllis (Wise) Wennermark. Forrest proudly served his country in the U.S. Air Force.

Forrest enjoyed being a member of his son's go-kart and stock car racing teams, as well as being a flagman at Delaware Speedway for over 10 years. He enjoyed tinkering in his garage, playing pool and spending time with his dogs, but, most of all, loved spending time with family and friends, especially mornings at Donutland.
He was preceded in death by his parents; and three half-sisters, Maurine Wallace, Marguerite Koehler and Maxine Herren.
Left to cherish Forrest's memories are his wife, Cynthia Wennermark; son, Scott (Rachael) Wennermark; two stepsons, Jeffrey Wright and Gary (Sara) Wright; two grandsons, Seth and Trenten; three stepgrandsons, Owen, Jaxen and Greyson; and sister, Barbara Ross.
