George Forcht

George began worshipping at Northwest Tampa in February of 1984, and officially became a member in July of that year.  He was appointed to the eldership in 1999.  He is married to Mary Ann, and they’ve been together since November 30, 1962.  Their children and grandchildren are Lemuel who is married to Paula, and Susan Lockhart, married to Chris.  Their grandchildren are Turner, Harrison, Hayden, and Mary Jane.  George worked as in Supervisory Plant Protection, and also as a Quarantine Officer for the USDA.  He has lived in Arkansas, Louisiana, and Florida.  His hobby, if you ask anyone, is being the handy man, along with “Ole Blue” – his pickup truck.  Mr. George loves being an elder, and especially his role as the one who blesses the babies.  He loves having a part in the lives of the babies as they grow up and learn about God.
