Forrest Mitchell Stinson, 28, of Daphne, AL, took his own life on Sunday, April 19, 2020.

Forrest was born December 5, 1991 in Selma, the son of Kevin and Susan Stinson. He graduated from Gulf Shores High School in 2011.  He was one of the kindest, caring, hardest working people that you would ever meet.

He loved kids and dogs and made new friends everywhere he went. His laugh was contagious.  Forrest was always eager to help others.  He, like his dad, was a man of many skills.  He could easily transition from being a tanker-man, mechanic, photographer, best cook in the house, Jeep enthusiast, sail “blow” boater, amateur race car driver, to a miniature golf extraordinaire.  In his spare time, he was sharing a funny story, enjoying life, and somehow making sure that everyone in his life was doing OK.  He loved all of his friends and family.

Forrest is preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, James Dennis Stinson.

He is survived by his mother, Susan Stinson (Christopher) Barnes; father, Kevin Stinson (Renae Foshee Stinson); paternal grandparents, Bobby and Janice Roseberry; maternal grandfather, Larry Lolley, maternal grandmother, Lynn Mitchell; brother, Nick Stinson; fiancée, Sarah Jane Zombori; his aunts & uncles, Cindi & Glenn Klein, Kay & Donnie Shumate, Michele & David Stough, Anna & Jerry Harrison; as well as other relatives and lots of friends.

There will be a celebration of life held at a later date when we are allowed to gather in a larger group.  The family requests that in lieu of flowers, you would consider memorial donations made to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, based in Birmingham at https://afsp.org/give-a-gift. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 1-800-273-8255, if you are having suicidal thoughts or know someone that is.
