A Sacred Moment


Mark Franklin Forrest

July 01, 1962 - January 19, 2017

Mark had a love for life and never ending sense of humor

Mark Forrest would like to let everyone know that his work here is done.  He received a call, the kind of an offer you can’t refuse, for an appointment from which he will not be returning.  This assignment comes with the promise of an imaginary John Deer Tractor to pave the way to a wonderful place where he will be garage sailing to his heart’s content without ever spending a penny.  Once he gets to his destination, Mark will be watching over the Triple Tree Farm….making sure that the pigs will be fat enough to roast at the annual summer party.  Details about the 2017 Pig Roast at Triple Tree Farm will be posted June 2017 on tripletreefarm2017.com.

Mark had a love for life….his never ending sense of humor could always bring a smile to your face.  He loved his family and his work at Overlake Hospital as the Director of Outpatient Psychiatry & Specialty School.   Mark touched the lives of everyone he knew and shared his wisdom about psychiatry with anyone in need.  He and his wife Jeannie shared a life of hope at the Triple Tree Farm along with his favorite people in the world, his children. 

Although he will be deeply missed, he will always be forever in our hearts.

He was born on July 1, 1962, to Frank and JoAnn Forrest in Seattle, WA.  He passed away on January 19, 2017.  He is preceded in death by his father, Frank Forrest.  He is survived by his wife, Jeannie Forrest, and his children, Keegan, Ryan, and Kelsey and his mother, JoAnn Forrest.  He will be deeply missed by the families of both of his sisters; Kim and Dave Pontrello (Jon, Joanne, and Matt) and Karen and Dave Miller (Katie and Lizzie).


A celebration of his life and a memorial service will be held at Gold Creek Community Church on Saturday, February 4, 2017 at 3pm. (4326 148th Street SE, Mill Creek, WA 98012).


As per request of family in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Hope Soliders
