Obituary Please share a memory of Kevin to include in a keepsake book for family and friends. View Tribute Book On November 17, Dr. Kevin Forsythe succumbed to cancer, an illness that he devoted his career to treating as a radiation oncologist at the Oregon Urology Institute. He was 43. Kevin had a boundless appetite for fun and whimsy. He had many hobbies, which he loved to share with his family and friends, including robotics, gardening, fishing, chess, video games, dungeons and dragons, ham radio, cooking, model rockets, wine tasting, beekeeping, poker, traveling, hunting, and building indestructible gingerbread houses. Kevin could sear a steak to perfection and was particularly proud when his daughter wrote a school poem devoted to New York strip. He liked to take his children on ‘adventures’: a trip to the movies, arcade, and McDonalds. This included a ritual exalting the ‘golden nugget’ (the round one in the Happy Meal), which would be dipped in honey and consumed in the back of his pickup truck. His zest for life continued even until his final days, as he binge-watched X-Men cartoons with his son and savored slices of a pineapple that took ten years to grow in his front entranceway. (You can grow one too using a pineapple top from the supermarket – www.southernliving.com/garden/edible/how-to-grow-pineapple-top). He is survived by his wife, Liz, his children, Holly and George, his mother, Hillie, his siblings, Jacqueline and Brian, and his nieces and nephews, Abigail, Robert, and Cameron. The family wishes to express their gratitude to the many doctors and nurses who provided extraordinary care to Kevin over the last year, especially Dr. James Butrynski, Dr. Peter Rose, and Dr. Thomas Sroka. In lieu of flowers or donations, we hope you will take up a new hobby in Kevin’s honor and share that hobby with family and friends. A public memorial service will be held on Sunday, December 11, at 4PM, at the Unitarian Universalist Church, located at 1685 13th Ave, Eugene, Oregon. Arrangements in the care of Sunset Hills Funeral Home, Crematorium, and Cemetery. To send flowers to the family or plant a tree in memory of Kevin , please visit our floral store. Read more
