In Memoriam - Terry "T.A." Forsberg

Wednesday, December 30, 2015  
Share |

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Terry Albert “T.A.” Forsberg, owner of T.A. Forsberg, Inc. He was 86 years old.

 

Terry founded T.A. Forsberg, Inc. and rapidly grew his business. He worked all over Michigan pouring curb and gutter, widening concrete and doing other types of concrete work. In the early 60s, T.A. Forsberg, Inc. became pre-qualified with the Michigan Department of Transportation and began to do work for the state of Michigan. Over time, the company expanded into building roads, doing site work and building municipal sewer and water systems.

 

Terry’s career was extensive and far-reaching. He was held in high regard by his construction peers, and in 1990 he was unanimously elected to serve as President of the Michigan Road Builders Association.

 

In the 90s, Terry phased out of the construction business in Michigan and focused more on the development of his real estate holdings with his son, Dennis, developing residential and commercial property. Today, Forsberg Real Estate is run by Terry’s grandson, Brent Forsberg.

 

Terry is survived by his children, Ken Forsberg, Dennis (JoAnn) Forsberg, and Faith (Mike) West; grandsons Jaysen, Matthew, Brent, Lance, Chad, and Cameron; granddaughters Emily, Farrin, and Catherine; great-grandsons Jaysen Jr. and Mitchell; great-granddaughters Avery and Hadassah; and two step great-grandchildren, Cody and Chris. Terry was preceded in death by his wife of 50 years, Beulah, as well as his grandson, Branden Forsberg.
