PRICE/TUCSON, Ariz. - It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of our father, Joseph Robert Forrester, on Dec. 22, 2008 in Tucson, Ariz.

Born Jan. 11, 1925, he was the oldest son of Joseph E. "Dode" Forrester and Evelyn Caldwell Forrester. He married Ruby Neilson in May 1945; later divorced. Married Blanch Manchester in 1965.
