Forrest K. Howard, 27, of South Bend (formerly of Elkhart), died unexpectedly at 5:02 am on Saturday, June 19. He was born on November 13, 1993, in South Bend, to Jill (Scher) and Greg Howard. Surviving is his mother Jill (Patrick) Mohan of Elkhart; two half-sisters, Shaye and Kacie Mohan; and his father Greg. He was named after his surviving grandfather Joseph Forrest Scher. Forrest was a graduate of Elkhart Central High School where he was the class treasurer and a four-year member of the varsity soccer team. He spent several years playing travel soccer with F.C. Indiana and Kalamazoo Kingdom. He was previously employed at HIMCO and most recently as an assistant manager at the Goodwill Store on Cleveland Road in South Bend. Forrest loved to be with family and friends spending time outdoors fishing, boating, planting flowers and vegetables, cooking, dancing, telling stories, playing games and making others laugh. He absolutely loved life. After suffering a traumatic brain injury in 2012 as a result of a car accident, he was unable to attend IU Bloomington. The family will hold services at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be given to Ronald McDonald House Michiana (610 N.
