I heard a few days ago he was in critical condition. Sad to learn that he passed away  :crying:

Had the great fortune to attend dinners with him, his wife, Ray Scott, Helen Sevier and hear stories of the origins of BASS and Ranger Boats. A great memory; Forest lived a great life. Definitely an Icon of the sport.

Here's a tribute video his family put out. I like the pictures of him and Jerry Mckinnis together, i'm sure they're fishing together again  :)
