Since then, we met many times at various IAHR Congresses. In 1997, he was the Chair of the Organizing Committee of the 27th IAHR Congress held in San Francisco. I served as one of Organizing Committee members and worked with him on many issues. He then became the President of IAHR and participated in the IAHR Congress held in Beijing in 2001 and in Thessaloniki in 2003. I always thought Forrest has done a superb job as the President of IAHR.
His professional achievements in computational hydraulics, dispersion, unsteady flow, alluvial hydraulics and water quality modeling are well known. In 1980, Cunge, Holly, and Verwey published a book, Practical Aspects of Computational River Hydraulics. He spent five years at SOGREAH, Grenoble with Dr. Jean Cunge and four years at the University of Nice with Director Philippe Gourbesville.
I believe Forrest let an active, productive, and fruitful life. He impressed me as a warm, caring, and supportive person who possessed a positive outlook about his profession. I consider him as my best friend and colleague. I dearly miss him.
