Dwight H. “Moe” Forbes, 91, of rural Bellville died Wednesday evening, Feb. 3, 2016 in Mansfield Memorial Homes after a one month illness. Mr. Forbes was born July 29, 1924 in Worthington Twp., Richland County, where he lived his entire life on the family farms. He was the son of the late Wade Eugene and Ethel Marie (Hazlett) Forbes. He was a 1943 graduate of Butler High School and attended Perrysville Baptist Church. Mr. Forbes was a life-long dairy farmer and third generation maker of maple syrup. He loved his dairy cows and knew them all by name having milked by hand for so long. He worked the hills of his farm with horses rather than tractors for years and his two favorite farm horses were “Topsy” and “Turvy”. Mr. Forbes was a former member of the Worthington Twp. Fire Dept., Butler, and the Butler Co-op Board of Directors.

He is survived by his wife, Mary B. (McMillan) Forbes, whom he married Sept. 24, 1949; four daughters: Nancy Forbes of Sunland, CA, Becky “Red” (Wayne) Guy, Laura (Todd) Hall, and Leslie (Jim) Weber, all of rural Butler; nine grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; his twin brother, Dwain (Alverta) Forbes of rural Bellville; and six nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents; one sister, Faunda Forbes; and one brother, Randall Forbes.
