Ryan D. Forness, 32, of Eveleth passed from this earth into the presence of his Savior on Saturday, October 7, 2017 in Valdosta, Georgia as a result of an automobile accident.

Ryan was born on February 28, 1985 in Rock Springs, Wyoming to Richard D. and LuAnn (Hanson) Forness. He grew up in Nevada and moved to Minnesota as a young adult. Ryan earned his certificate as a pipe welder from Mesabi Community College and worked for various construction companies. He was united in marriage to Sarah L. Kunnari on December 31, 2016 in Virginia. In his younger years, Ryan was a very good dirt bike rider and later on liked painting, sky diving, traveling and spending time on the water, whether it be on a beach or near the ocean. His greatest enjoyment came from spending time with his children and family. Ryan was a great man…he was always putting smiles on everyone’s faces and making everyone happy.

He is survived by his wife, Sarah; twins, Caly and Carmichael; daughter, Sophia and son, Hunter; his parents, Richard (Colleen) Forness; his mother, LuAnn Forness; sisters, Stacy Robillard, Dana Forness; his father and mother-in-law, Jack and Mariann Kunnari and extended family and friends.
