Bill Forester, 65, of Akron passed away May 11, 2017. He was born March 21, 1952 in Akron to the late James and Mary Forester. Bill proudly served on the Akron Police Department for 25 years of service, until his retirement in 2016. During his years of service, Bill was placed in many difficult situations but he still smiled and cared about everyone he met. He had a smile that will be remembered by all who knew him. To honor Bill, perform a random act of kindness for someone -- not just today but every day, as he would.
Bill was preceded in death by his brothers, Thomas and James Forester. He is survived by his nieces, Tammy Spoerri and Tiffany Reynolds-Espinosa; his Blue family of the Akron Police Department; as well as his many other loving friends throughout the Akron area.
