David Charles Forbush – age 90, of Holly, went to be with our Lord on Wednesday, December 25, 2019. David was employed by General Motors for more than 40 years, where his talents as a machine repairman were so finely honed that he bragged he could “pert near make those machines talk”!  He was a 65-year member of Holly Calvary Methodist Church where he enjoyed singing in the choir and serving in many other capacities.  David had a great sense of humor and loved nothing more than to laugh, share conversation, and welcome family and friends into his beloved lakeside home.  Enter his home and you might find him watching birds from his sunroom, baking his famous peanut butter cup cookies, or repairing just about anything and everything that he could find.  In his younger years, he enjoyed camping in his motorhome, motorcycle riding, watersports, and traveling with the love of his life, Gloryann. David was a loving and devoted husband, father, and grandfather.  He is preceded in death by his wife of 50 years, Gloryann, as well as five brothers and two sisters.  He is survived by his three children, Sandra (Jeff) Smith, Mike (Heike-deceased) Forbush, and Sheri (Matt) Schroeder; nine grandchildren, Dustin (Ashleigh) Smith, Ryan Smith, Adam (Kristine) Forbush, Alyssa (Nick) McDonald, Brooke Forbush, Brent Forbush, Kirsten (Jeff) Phillips, Tyler (Vanessa) Schroeder, and Jessica Schroeder; and six great-grandchildren.  He also leaves behind many nieces and nephews as well as his close companion, Ramona Green. Visitation will take place from 2 - 9 PM on Thursday, January 2, 2020 at Dryer Funeral Home in Holly.  Visitation again at 10 - 11 AM on Friday, January 3, 2020 at the Holly Calvary Methodist Church. The funeral will commence at 11 AM at the church, followed by a graveside service and a luncheon at the church.  In lieu of flowers, memorial donations are gratefully accepted by the Calvary United Methodist Church of Holly.
