Forrest "Bud" G. Vining

January 23, 1940 — May 20, 2024

Claypool

Forrest G. Vining, known to most as "Bud", went to be with the Lord on Monday, May 20, 2024, in his home in Claypool at the age of 84. He was born on January 23, 1940, in Etna Green, the son of Charles Vining and Millicent Carey Slone (Long). Bud led a fulfilling life dedicated to his family.

In his professional journey, Bud worked at several places throughout his career. He worked in the street department for the City of Warsaw for 23 years before retirement. On March 18, 1958, in the pastor’s home in Kosciusko County, Bud married the love of his life, Betty J. Millington. The two shared their lives together, raising their sons.

Bud was a true family man, embodying kindness and thoughtfulness in all his interactions. His love for fishing, hunting, Westerns, wrestling, and country gospel music (especially Hank Williams) reflected his simple joys in life.

A man who took immense pride in his family, Bud's proudest accomplishments revolved around the love and bond they shared. He leaves behind a legacy of love that will continue to resonate through generations. During his final moments, Bud was surrounded by his family who meant the world to him. His passing leaves a void in the hearts of his loved ones but also serves as a reminder of the impact he had on all who knew him.

Bud is survived by his loving wife of 66 years, Betty J. Vining (Millington), son, Wesley Vining, 8 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, 12 great-great-grandchildren, and sisters, Jenny Shoe, Glenda Holbrook, and Sue Fairbanks. He is further survived by many extended nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. Bud is reunited in eternal peace with his parents, as well as his sons, Jacob and Glen Vining and siblings, Jim Carey, Linda Craemer, Rob Clemons, Rodney Carey, Dave Carey, and Judy Hudkins.
