Obituary of James C. Forsythe


James C. Forsythe passed away suddenly at his home in Boonton Twp., NJ on May 25, 2019, at the age of 68.


James lived his entire life in Boonton Twp., NJ and worked for 25 years as a police officer for the Boonton Twp. Police Department before retiring in 1998.  After retirement he started his own construction company, J.C. Construction, and worked as a security guard for St. Clare’s Hospital in Denville for 7 years.


He loved construction and any type of handy work or project that needed to be done whether it be woodworking or forging, as he was also a blacksmith.  James also loved history and reading, but his main passions were hunting and especially fly fishing.


James is survived by his beloved wife of 32 years, Debra (Jancik) Forsythe of Boonton Twp., and by his loving son Scott and his wife Kristen Forsythe of MA.  He is also survived by his step son Glenn Johnson of Boonton, NJ, his brother Clifford Forsythe of Rockway and by his sister Barbara Weatherford of Boonton Twp., NJ as well as his nieces and nephews.


Visitation will be held on Wednesday May 29, 2019, from 2-4PM & 7-9PM at Norman Dean Home for Services 16 Righter Ave Denville, NJ 07834 www.normandean.com.
