Stephen Reynolds “Sunshine” Forrester, 69, of Cairo, GA, passed away on Sunday, May 30, 2021, at Archbold Memorial Hospital surrounded by his loving friends and family in Thomasville, GA. The family will have a memorial service at a later time.
Mr. Forrester was born on September 28, 1951, in Cairo, GA, to the late Ellis Malone Forrester and Ella Ree Jones Forrester. He was married to Barbara Ann Miller Forrester, who preceded him in death. He retired from the construction industry. Steve was raised in the Methodist faith. He was a quiet man who spent most of his life working with his hands. Whether it be construction work or building furniture at home, he had skills. His favorite place was the river where he spent countless hours with friends, fishing and enjoying life.
Steve was also a family man who enjoyed a good book. He loved being in his garden and often cooked delicious meals for his wife, children and grandchildren; all of whom loved his cornbread almost as much as they loved him. He was a happy man that didn’t let much bother him and he will be greatly missed.
