In Memoriam: Forrest Flaniken, Wycliffe USA CFO

Forrest FlanikenA public memorial service will be held this Saturday for Forrest Flaniken, who served as the Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer for Wycliffe USA.

Flaniken, a valued member of the Wycliffe family for nearly 22 years, was struck by a car and killed on Sunday while out riding his bicycle in east Orlando, FL.

“Please keep Kristen, their three sons – Forrest III (known as Chipper), Nelson, and Spencer – and the rest of the family in your prayers as they face this massive loss,” urged Wycliffe Senior Vice President Russ Hersman. “Although they can take comfort in the fact that Forrest is with our loving Heavenly Father, I know they are also feeling an incredible hole in their lives right now.”

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting gifts be made to the Forrest Flaniken Memorial Fund at Wycliffe USA. Checks should be made out to “Wycliffe USA” and marked in the memo line for the “Forrest Flaniken Memorial Fund.” They can be sent to Wycliffe Bible Translators, PO Box 628200, Orlando, FL 32862-8200.

The public memorial service for Flaniken will be held at Aloma Church in Winter Park, FL, on Saturday, October 20, at 2:00 p.m.
