Forrest G. Vining

May 21, 2024 at 6:43 p.m.


Forrest G. Vining, known to most as "Bud," went to be with the Lord on Monday, May 20, 2024, in his home in Claypool at the age of 84.
He was born on Jan. 23, 1940, in Etna Green, the son of Charles Vining and Millicent Carey Long Slone. Bud led a fulfilling life dedicated to his family.
In his professional journey, Bud worked at several places throughout his career. He worked in the street department for the city of Warsaw for 23 years before retirement. On March 18, 1958, in the pastor’s home in Kosciusko County, Bud married the love of his life, Betty J. Millington. The two shared their lives together, raising their sons.
Bud was a true family man, embodying kindness and thoughtfulness in all his interactions. His love for fishing, hunting, Westerns, wrestling and country gospel music (especially Hank Williams) reflected his simple joys in life.
A man who took immense pride in his family, Bud's proudest accomplishments revolved around the love and bond they shared. He leaves behind a legacy of love that will continue to resonate through generations. During his final moments, Bud was surrounded by his family who meant the world to him. His passing leaves a void in the hearts of his loved ones but also serves as a reminder of the impact he had on all who knew him.
Bud is survived by his loving wife of 66 years, Betty J. Millington Vining; son, Wesley Vining; eight grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, 12 great-great-grandchildren, and sisters, Jenny Shoe and Glenda Holbrook. He is further survived by many extended nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. Bud is reunited in eternal peace with his parents, as well as his sons, Jacob and Glen Vining; and siblings: Jim Carey, Linda Craemer, Sue Fairbanks, Rob Clemons, Rodney Carey, Dave Carey and Judy Hudkins.
Titus Funeral Home of Warsaw is entrusted with the care of Bud and his family. Friends and family may gather there, 2000 Sheridan St., Warsaw, on Friday, May 24 from 10 a.m. until noon. At noon, his Life Celebration service will begin with Pastor Ron Patrick officiating. Burial will immediately follow at Oakwood Cemetery.
