Obituary of Forrest Maki

Forrest R. Maki entered into Heaven on August 20, 2021 at the age of 84 in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. He was born in Minnesota in 1937 to Wilfred R. Maki and Edith E. Maki. He married the love of his life, Elaine, in 1962. He was always eager to tell everyone how dearly he loved her and was excited to share his Heavenly mansion with her someday. He greatly loved the Lord and was excited to share God’s love. He was a general contractor in both Minnesota and Arizona, having built countless homes. He also helped build multiple Christian churches and a Christian school. He was passionate about building and carpentry, always proud of the hard work and dedication he poured into anything he put his mind towards. He loved music and enjoyed playing his guitar and organ. He loved hiking, where he could see God’s gorgeous nature. He hiked many mountains with family and friends. He loved the beauty of Hawaii and spending time at his home in Williams. He loved his family and friends, and with his playful Finnish humor, enjoyed being with them every Sunday evening playing a good table game of Aggravation – even until the very week he entered Heaven. Forrest is preceded in death by his parents, brother Jon Maki, and son-in-law John Dennis. Forrest is survived by his wife Elaine Maki, daughter Cheryl Dennis of Lake Havasu City, Arizona, son Alan (Pamela) Maki of Olympia, Washington, brother Paul (Nectar) Maki of Lake Placid, Florida, grandchildren Ashley (Eddy) Shaver, Joshua Dennis, Alex Maki, Erik Maki, and sister-in-law Lydia Maki. A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, August 28th, at Our Saviour Evangelical Lutheran Church, 3163 Maricopa Ave. Visitation will begin at 9:30 with service at 11:00. Arrangements were placed in the care of Lietz-Fraze Funeral Home and Crematory.
