It is with great sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of Bradley Michael Forist. Bradley was called by the Lord to be reunited with his dad Michael B. Forist following a car crash on Tuesday, May 19, 2020. Bradley was born on May 08, 1990, in Ionia, Michigan. He is the beloved son of Becky Sue Teachworth-Forist. Loving brother of Donna Starks (Brent Starks) and Bridget Gilley (Dana Gilley). The cherished father to Braydon Micheal Edwards (Tabitha Baker). Bradley is the soulmate and fiance to Nicole Ogden.

Bradley will be missed every day and forever remembered by his other siblings, nieces, nephews, family, and friends.

Although only 30 at the time of his death, Bradley affected many people in his lifetime. He was truly a big kid at heart, a delightful, generous, easy-going, fun-loving person. From an early age, he had a love for nature, fishing, hunting, and being outdoors. He enjoyed playing with his nieces and nephew, listening to music, playing basketball, and baseball. He was a talented spiritually connected artist and found pleasure in tinkering on just about anything.

Those who knew Bradley, even just a little, lost a shining light in their lives.

We will forever be grateful for the pleasure of his company, how good he made us feel, how free we were to be ourselves around him, his huge smile and larger than life hugs, and how much we love and will dearly miss him.

Bradley will be cremated and a private service for immediate family will be held at Ofield Funeral Home. An ash scattering and memorial will take place at a later date.

Donations and/ or flowers can be made to: Donna Starks, 137 Lafayette Street, Ionia, Michigan 48846
