Rudi Forhan
Rudi Forhan

God made room in heaven last week for our dearly loved father. It was his prayer to be able to join his mother, father and siblings.

Rudi, age 92, died Sunday June 7, 2015 at 9:40 a.m., surrounded by loving family at his home in Vacaville, California. He had been ill for a short period with pneumonia, sepsis and heart failure.

Rudi is survived by his wife of 69 years, Alice (Mehrens), his son William (Bill) and wife Carol of Leavenworth; his daughter Gayle (Elizabeth) and husband Dale Schendzielos of Colorado Springs, Colorado; daughter Diane (DuBose) of Vacaville; and son Edward and wife Cami of Clayton, California; thirteen grandchildren and 25 great grandchildren.

Rudi was born on March 12, 1923 in Kalispell, Montana to William Forhan and Hermine Bozane Forhan (Merker) He was the youngest of his clan of Irish and Czechoslovakian immigrants and loved to celebrate his Irish heritage.

He was preceded in death by his father William, his mother Hermine, his sisters, Sally, Midge, Florence (Tetler), Laura Josephine (Measure), Margaret (Smith), Nelle (Hartley), and brothers Edward, and William (Buz) Forhan.

During the "Great War" Rudi served in the Merchant Marine service hauling war supplies to the troops in Europe and the South Pacific. He graduated from the Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point where he was commissioned as an ensign in the Maritime service. He served as a navigation officer who was responsible for guiding his unarmed supply ship through submarine infested waters in order to unload munitions and supplies for the troops in New Guinea and France.

After the war Rudi attended the Montana School of Mines in Butte, Montana where he received a degree in Geological Engineering. He injured his knee playing football and ended up in the hospital where he met Alice, a fastidious nurse who caught his eye and stole his heart. Rudi and Alice were married on January 22, 1946 in Butte at St. Patrick's Catholic Church.

The couple lived in Butte for most of their early years of marriage where Rudi worked for the Anaconda Company ultimately heading up the work on the Berkley Pit. From Butte, Rudi's work took him to Mandeville, Jamaica, West Indies, Grants, New Mexico, and Denver, Colorado. He retired in Tucson, Arizona and moved to Vacaville, California to be closer to family four years ago.

Rudi loved to fish and was especially fond of practicing the art of dry fly fishing on the many rivers of Western Montana. When it was too dark to see a White Wulff floating on the evening ripples he would retire to his family camp trailer where he taught his preteen children to play bridge.

Rudi was a loving father and friend to all he met. His quick humor and warm smile could diffuse the most difficult confrontations. He was loved by all and will be deeply missed.

A memorial service to celebrate Rudi's life is being planned for later this summer at one of Rudi's favorite Montana trout streams. Those wishing to make a donation in Rudi's memory can contribute to the Wounded Warrior Project.
