Forrest Woodward

August 8, 1942 — February 16, 2022

Forrest Woodward, 79, of Livingston, passed away Wednesday, February 16, 2022. A graveside service will be on Wednesday, Feb. 23, at Mountain View Cemetery beginning at 10 AM.With a birth name like Faymous, he was destined to be a celebrity. And he was in some way; everyone in Livingston knew Faymous Forrest Woodward. Even if you had never engaged him in conversation, you probably knew him at least by his hat: he always had it on, and it was always the same one.​Forrest would be standing outside the Senior Center where he had resided for the last 19 years, smoking a cigarette or two, usually staring at the ground, not talking to anyone, avoiding eye contact with passersby. Probably deaf from a very young age, Forrest's speech was also difficult to understand so he pretty much kept to himself, as if he was trying to be invisible.​Occasionally he would grab a broom and sweep the sidewalk to remain active. If you thanked him, he would look at you with the biggest smile and a twinkle in his eye - under the familiar hat, there was a great guy trapped in a world of silence.​Born in Granville, Vermont, Faymous Forrest was the youngest of five children. His father was Earl Raymond Woodward , from Warren, Vermont, and his mother was Verna Virginia Dixon from Harlan, Kentucky. Forrest's dad was buried in Bozeman in 1976.​And now you know a little more about Forrest Woodward, about the man who passed on February 16 at the age of 79. He was not just anyone: he was Faymous.Franzen-Davis Funeral Home and Crematory has been entrusted with arrangements.
