Forrington, Robert York
July 2, 1940 - November 21, 2019

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of York Forrington. York was a successful business man and over the years had numerous businesses across Canada. Besides world travelling, he enjoyed an outdoor life of sailing off of the coast of Vancouver Island, golfing throughout Canada and the U.S.A., camping, and lots of fishing.

He is survived by his wife Kathryn Forrington, daughter Demerese Cooper (Barry), grand-son Eddie Cooper, step-daughter Jordyn Ross (David), grand-daughter Jaxyn Kate Ross, four brothers Jack, Gerry, Ray and Les, and sister Muriel.

Respecting his wishes there will be no funeral service. We ask all that knew York, and wish to do so, to raise a glass to him on Sunday, December 1st at 6 pm Alberta time. York will be interred at the Cowley cemetery, located in the Alberta foothills, reminiscent of where he grew up. To view and share photos, condolences and stories of York, please visit

Kathy, words alone cannot express the sadness I feel for you. I'm sending you a big virtual hug and trust that your close family and friends will be there to give you actual hugs and share your tears.
I didn't know York well but I knew that you had a lovely life together. What a blessing!
