Floyd Bradley Forsberg of Big Timber passed away suddenly on Feb. 27, at Bozeman Health Hospital.

Brad was born to Floyd and Ruth Forsberg on June 7, 1939 in Hollywood, California. Brad’s father died on Wake Island when he was just three years old and after was raised solely by his mother. He graduated from Reseda High School in Reseda, California in 1957. He enlisted in the United States Army where he served active duty from 1958-1960 and then served another two years in the Army Reserves.

He was married to Sharon (Linse) Forsberg on February 13, 1965 in Canoga Park. Brad attended two years of college while working at Rockwell International for twenty years before moving his family to Big Timber in November 1979. He spent the next twenty years working for the Montana Department of Transportation and volunteering for the Big Timber Volunteer Fire Department.

Brad lived his life as a devoted husband of Sharon Forsberg and loving father of two. Their first born, Kim, married Joe Mobley and they have two daughters of their own, Kandon, married to Theo Lewis, and Ericka. Their second born was a son, Erick, who passed away in December of 1996. Brad lived the rest of his life devoting his time to his family, not missing out on any moments to make memories. Brad enjoyed his retirement years camping with his family and friends at Georgetown Lake every summer. During his ample relaxing time in his later years, he enjoyed hunting, fishing and fixing anything and everything. He was known for keeping equipment running well past their years. Brad was a man who liked to live with a little and love with a lot. “Frosty” will be missed by many.

The funeral services will be held at 2 p.m., May 4, at the Big Timber Lutheran Church. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a charity of choice or the Big Timber Volunteer Fire Department.
