Credicott, Forrest William

Credicott, Forrest William

December 31st, 2020

Of London, passed away peacefully at home on Thursday, December 31, 2020. Forrest was born on September 22, 1933 in Sulphide, ON, to Lee and Helen (Tucker) Credicott. “Red” was a lifelong sheet metal worker, proudly serving LU 30 and LU 473 for more than 63 years. He married the love of his life, Elsie Daku, and together they celebrated 46 years of blessed marriage before Elsie’s passing in 2010. Forrest and Elsie are together again. Dad made it just in time to celebrate the New Year - what a party that must have been! They will be forever loved and missed by their children, Lee Credicott (Della) and Denise Jackson (Kim), and their 3 grandchildren, Jennifer, Craig and William. Forrest will be fondly remembered by several nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. He was a kind, caring and generous man who was always ready to lend a helping hand. Forrest especially enjoyed get-togethers with family and friends. Special thanks to the many caregivers who provided Dad with excellent care, allowing us to fulfill his wish to stay at home. Cremation has taken place. Private interment will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the charity of your choice.

Pat O'SullivanDenise, Lee and Family: A farewell to my Uncle Forrest … Although I’m sad to say goodbye to you, I’m happy you are now reunited with Aunt Elsie, your soulmate in life and beyond. I’m so grateful that I got to share so many wonderful years with you. To me you are the embodiment of family, always welcoming, generous, kind and inclusive for all. You made time for friends, family and strangers alike, with always a cheerful greeting and an offer to help if needed. I watched as you and Aunt Elsie raised your two children and welcomed your grandchildren into the family. You were blessed with a beautiful family and a joyful life. You became a wonderful addition to the Daku family as well. We celebrated many special occasions together with my Mom & Steve and I will always fondly remember our many card games and your backyard BBQ’s in London. You have been a much- loved member of my own family, and I will always carry many beautiful memories of the times you and I were together. Love always, Pat

Courtney & TraceyDenise, Kim, Lee, Della, Jennifer, Craig, William, and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Uncle Forrest was a very kind man. I used to love it when everyone would come over to play cards or we would go to London growing up. He would always take the time to ask how I was... "How are ya doin' kiddo?" He made everyone feel welcome. He would shine when he talked about auntie Elsie with so much love. We will miss him dearly. ❤️
Rick and Joanne O'SullivanDenise and Lee and family, So sorry to hear our last uncle has moved on. Aunt Elsie could not have picked a more caring and loving partner to add to our family.

Rest in peace uncle Forrest, you will be missed and not forgotten. Everyone take care and stay safe. Love Rick and Joanne
