Cliffton Forsythe Obituary

Cliffton B. “OBI” Forsythe was born March 4, 1973, in Omaha, Nebraska to Mark   and Karen (Barber) Forsythe, and passed away Friday, November 3, 2023, at the age of 50.  Cliffton grew up in Omaha and graduated from Omaha South High School in 1991.

Cliffton obtained his CDL license and delivered mail to various locations, a profession he truly relished.

Cliffton married Jessica L. Kotas on July 16, 2004, at the Saline Center, rural Western, Nebraska. Together they had one child, Brackston.

Outside of work, Cliffton was a sports fanatic, with a particular passion for the Cincinnati Bengals and the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Sundays were sacred in the Forsythe household, as he cheered on his beloved team, donning the orange and black with pride while frequently checking in on his fantasy football team. In his free time, Cliffton could be found engaging in friendly competition. His passion was playing pool and going to the bowling alley. Cliffton was a “shy and quiet person” yet was very sociable when it came to sports.
