Robert David Forsyth, age 83, of Las Vegas, Nevada, passed away peacefully, at home, on June 30, 2020, with his family by his side. He is survived by his children, Shauna and her husband, Jeff Smith, from Bisbee, Arizona, David and Kelly from Las Vegas, Nevada, Angela Kruse from Seattle, Washington, and Russell Fournier, from Dallas, Texas, as well as his sister, Marilyn Stephenson from Sarnia, Ontario, and many cousins, nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents, Alex and Anne Forsyth, his sister, Marg and her husband, Cal Belbeck, and brother-in-law, Robert Stephenson. Robert (Bob) was born in Swift Current, Saskatchewan on April 8, 1937. His father was from Inverness, Scotland and his mother was born in Success, Saskatchewan. He graduated from the Swift Current Collegiate Institute, and received his pharmacy degree in 1961 from the University of Saskatoon, and his medical degree in 1966 from University of Alberta. He was an emergency and family practice doctor in Calgary, Alberta until 1976. The family moved to Las Vegas, where he practiced medicine for over 35 years. He married Mackeline Misouri in 1959, and they spent many years in Edmonton and Calgary before moving to Las Vegas. He married Marilyn Fleming in 1978, and they raised one daughter, Angela. He married Kelly Fournier in 1993, and they raised one son, Russell. Bob was known for his quick wit and fun loving spirit, and his compassion and selfless commitment to those around him. In his earlier years, he enjoyed thoroughbred racing and flying airplanes. He always loved reading, crosswords, and cribbage. He was an avid sports fan; he loved hockey, golf, and tennis, but was known for his passion for the Dallas Cowboys. He loved his houseboat where he could spend his time with friends and family on Lake Mead. There will be no memorial service at this time, but a celebration of Bob’s life will be scheduled at a future date when the family can travel easier and social gatherings are not restricted. He will be greatly missed by all of his family, former patients, and many, many friends.
