Timothy J. Forster, 47, of Perth Amboy, passed away on September 20, 2021. Timothy was born in Rahway, NJ on July 16, 1974 to Veronica (Sehnal) and William Forster III.
Aside from being a dedicated, hardworking employee no matter what job he was doing, Timmy was an avid New Jersey Devils fan holding season tickets for many years. Many know Timmy to have loved his motorcycle and any time spent exploring with friends, taking in as much "wind therapy" as possible along the coast (East or West), through the desert or into the mountains. Timmy's care for others was evident every day whether it was landscaping, moving furniture or decorating a 40-foot-tall tree on a wobbly ladder and never asking for a thing in return. Volunteering time, most remarkably at the site of the World Trade Center following 9/11 defines the person he was, "Everybody's Friend" through thick and thin and always just a phone call away. It was also not uncommon to see him in the audience at a dance show or a youth sporting event, being the biggest fan, supporting two of his biggest fans, Emma and Liam. Timmy has been referred to as "one of the good guys" which couldn't be more true. In our "gentle giant's" own words..."Today you could be standing next to someone who is trying their best not to fall apart. So whatever you do today, do it with kindness in your heart." Let's all carry that sentiment with us in his honor.
Timothy is predeceased by Grandparents, Elsie and Lawrence Sehnal and Louise and William Forster II, as well as Godfather Uncle Lawrence Sehnal Jr.
Surviving Timothy are his loving parents, Veronica and William Forster III, his brothers William Forster IV and his wife Stacy, Joseph Forster, niece Emma, nephew Liam, and aunts (Godmother) Mary Jean Sehnal and Mary Lou and Uncle Steve Resch as well as many cousins and friends near and far.
Visitation will be held on September 24th, 2021 from 3-7pm at the John E. Day Funeral Home, 85 Riverside Avenue, Red Bank, NJ 07734. A service at the funeral home will be held at 5:30 on September 24th, 2021. Cremation will be private.
