Forrest Deverl Miner, age 90 of Sarasota, FL and previously of Mentone, passed away on Monday, March 9, 2020 in his home in Sarasota.

Born on January 21, 1930 in Kosciusko County, he was the son of Lloyd C. “Brownie” Miner and Joy Miner of Crystal Lake. He was a 1947 graduate of Mentone High School and furthered his education by attending Fort Wayne Business College where he completed a business degree.

He was also a member of the Warsaw chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star and of the Mentone Lions Club. For many years he generously supported Helping Hands, Diabetes Foundation, Salvation Army, Bell Memorial Library, Mentone United Methodist Church and Metzger Memorial Park. In his spare time, he was an avid golfer, a horseback rider and enjoyed travelling.

He leaves behind a son, Brett (Marie) Miner and their son, Jacob (Wendy) Miner; a daughter, Christine Leis of Sarasota; son, Tod “Sid” (Keli) Miner of Sarasota and his step-children: Lani Idle, Jake Gross and Adam Gross; daughter, Sally (David) Reuter of Warsaw and their sons: Benjamin (Stephanie) Reuter and Zechariah (Robyn) Reuter; four great-grandchildren(with one on the way); sister, Bonita (Stu) McCann and his beloved dog, Jasper.

Dear Brett, Chris, Tod, and Sally-
I am so sorry for your loss. I don’t have any memories of Uncle Forest that he wasn’t smiling or laughing. I will always remember him that way; lots of charm and hilarity.

I wish we could have been with you all today. I hope our thoughts and prayers were felt by you- I know there were many coming your way from all directions.

With love,

Barbara Calhan
