Forrest Blue Can't Post

Long time Northern California jumper and all around nice guy passed away this weekend after an extended illness.

He always had a smile and a laugh ready for everyone he met. One of the good guys.

Fly free my friend...

Very sad to hear this. I met him at the South of the Border boogie in San Carlos many years ago. What a super nice guy.

Is this the same who is a former 49ers Center? When was Forrest last active jumping and where did he usually jump?

I was fortunate to meet Forrest and his girl friend Kelly at SkyDance Skydiving in 1994. They were both a part of my 200th jump in the sport. He was a humble and athlethic person and a pleasure to spend time with. I never research his football accomplishment until I heard of his passing. With Forrest, it was the here and now. You will be missed my old friend!

Yes, Ole, that was him. Jumped at Skydance a lot.
Fortunately made some with him. Great Guy.

LOL, yes, he was a very big guy. I was suppose to line up behind him on inside of the otter, but as soon as he bent over, we couldn't get by. I just turned to everyone and said "we are all swooping".

He was very friendly and funny.
