PATRICK WILLIAM FORINASH
Patrick William Forinash, 67, of rural Riverside, Iowa, passed away unexpectedly on April 1, 2021. Pat was born in Washington, Iowa, on January 24, 1954. He married Luann Turecek of Iowa City, Iowa on February 6, 1993.
Pat enjoyed refurbishing old well pumps, painting
them red (his favorite color), which was evidenced by the large display of them around his property. He also loved tinkering in his barn, tractors, windmills, making things, flea markets, and his daily car rides with his dog, Leroy.
Pat is survived by his wife, Luann; his dog, Leroy; his cat, Emmit; and Luann's family who treated him as one of their own. We will all miss him greatly.
No services are planned, but donations can be directed to PAWS and More Animal Shelter, 1004 West Madison St., Washington, IA 52353. To share a thought, memory or condolence with Pat's family, please visit the funeral home website at www.gayandciha.com.
