WILLIAM DAVID FORMAN
February 17, 1945 – January 21, 2022
With hearts broken we announce the passing of William “Bill” David Forman. He was born February 17, 1945, in Seattle, Washington, and passed away with his wife and kids by his side on January 21, 2022, from COVID-related pneumonia.
Bill was born to Abe and Annis Forman and grew up in Seattle, Washington. He was a loving husband, father, brother, papa, and great-papa.
Throughout his varied careers and spanning nearly six decades, he served as a Drill Sergeant in the United States Army and earned an honorable discharge during the Vietnam conflict; he spent many years as a dedicated police officer with the Seal Beach Police Department; he was the head of security for Toyota Motor Corporation – North America; and after nearly 29 years of dedicated service with the Hall/Mile One Automotive Group, he was planning his retirement for this year.
Bill stood out in both, his personal and professional life with notable and successful accomplishments and careers. He naturally followed his father’s example with Abe’s work ethic, values, and traits; he was dedicated, charming, charismatic, kind, happy, humorous, and intelligent. These traits made him stand out amongst his family, friends, and peers and have fostered many to be touched by his passing.
He is survived by his wife Teresa Forman, his children and their spouses Frank and Arin, Robert “Bobby”, David “DJ” and Kim, Amy and Scot Hecht, and Jeremy McCabe. He has left behind three siblings and spouses Rabbi Lawrence and Laura, Nathan “Bud” and Jean, and his sister Barbara and Frannie. He was blessed with ten grandchildren and one great-grandson, along with many nieces and nephews.
The memorial service for William “Bill” Forman will be held on Sunday, March 6, 2022, at 11:00 am PT/2:00 pm ET at the Los Alamitos Joint Forces Training Base Chapel. Directions to the chapel are following the Zoom information.
