Twenty-five (25) years ago, the universe released a complicated yet enigmatic soul. January 6, 1996 is the day Forrestt Lin Sirod Prescott would begin his journey. That journey would end January 11, 2021. During his time exploring life, Forrestt discovered a love of cooking, poetry, pondering and discussing life's complexities. Forrestt was a deep thinker who also loved a good prank and had a sense of humor with impeccable timing. He was simplistic in his outer appearance juxtaposing his sophisticated vocabulary and mannerisms. While he attended Mallard Creek High School, he also gained knowledge from every encounter and experience.
Although we were only given Forrestt for a short time there are so many stories, memories, jokes and lessons he gave us. Forrestt was compassionate and soft spoken. If going against the grain was a person, it would be Forrestt. He was unafraid to take a chance and challenged "societal norms". Forrestt was forgiving, non-judgmental and you would often hear him ask those he loved, "You good? You need anything?"
Forrestt will be deeply missed by his parents Doris and Taleiba Spencer; his siblings: Amil, Imri, and Moriah Robinson, all of Concord, NC, and a bonus brother Elijah Moore, Rock Hill, SC; his grandfather; Gerald Robinson, Hewitt NJ; his mentor and cousin, Anwar Prescott, Orlando, FL; his best friends: Justice Tilford, Klam Lamar, both of Charlotte, NC; and his entire extended family.
"I have absolutely no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes so madly indulge. It has not been in the pursuit of pleasure that I have periled life and reputation and reason. It has been the desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of insupportable loneliness and a dread of some strange impending doom."- Edgar Allan Poe
“What mental health needs is more sunlight, more candor, and more unashamed conversation.” – Glenn Close
