Obituary for Forrest L. VanPatten III
Forrest LaMoyne VanPatten III lost his long, courageous battle with cancer on Monday, February 17, 2020 with his family at his side. He was born on July 10, 1969 in Lansing, MI to Forrest and Denise VanPatten. He married Betty Sue Chupp on August 7, 1993 in Lansing. He was preceded in death by his father, Forrest II. He is survived by his wife of 26 years, Betty; son, Donovan (McKenzie Jackson); daughter, Madison (Michael Zingaretti); mother, Denise Haskell; brother, Thomas VanPatten; aunt, Eileen Frisbee; his friends that seem more like brothers, John Couch and Rusty Hickey; his furry friends, Henry, Shine, and Phoebe; many nieces and nephews. As Forrest had wished cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, February 21, 2:00 P.M. at the Sparta Baptist Church with Rev. Skip Meyer officiating. Friends may meet the family at the Church on Friday from 11:00 AM until time of service at 2:00 P.M. A luncheon will be immediately following at the North Kent Eagles. Those who wish may make memorial contributions to Michele’s Rescue, 301 Alten Ave. N.E. Grand Rapids, MI 49503
