Forrest Donald “Frosty” Wyrick – age 64 lost his battle with cancer on April 17, 2013. He was born on April 14, 1949, the son of Charles and Virginia (Sherrow) in Ubly. He served our country with the United States Air Force and then earned his Associates Degree in College. He worked as Assistant Director of Student Activities for Central Michigan University, retiring in 2006. Frosty was a unique and diverse person, having interests in many hobbies and projects, which included bowling, guitar and banjo, trains and erector sets. He belonged to the M-46 Horseshoe Club, Michigan Wolverine Horseshoe Assoc., and was a PBA member and an accomplished bowler, having bowled many 300 games in several different bowling alleys.
His real love was building replicas of iconic models such as his 101 ft. replica of the Mackinaw Bridge which sits in an art museum in Detroit, a 13 ½ ft. replica of the Titanic. His love of trains is evident by the refurbished caboose that he displays in his front yard. His effort in helping with the installation of the horseshoe pits in Farwell is a legacy that will be enjoyed for generations to come. His contributions to our community and desire to pay it forward to our community and our state is a legacy to all who enjoy the projects he has completed and donated to be displayed.
He is survived by his sons Randal, Mark, and Clayton Wyrick, and two brothers John Wyrick and wife Mary of Ubly, Tom Wyrick and wife Cerita of MO; special friend and care giver, Marcy Wyrick of Lake. He was preceded in death by his parents and sisters Janis Krug and Sarah Nusbaum.
A Memorial Service to celebrate his life was held on Thursday, April 25, 2013 at 11AM at the Campbell-Stocking Family Funeral Home in Farwell. David Luther officiated, with burial in the Valley Cemetery in Ubly. Memories and condolences may be shared online at www.CampbellStocking.com.
