FOLCK, FORREST EDWARD March 11, 1948 to December 28, 2018

Forrest “Chip” Edward Folck, 70, of San Diego, died at approximately 4:30am on December 28, 2018. He was the first son of Ruth Marilyn Melcher and Jean Daryl Folck. Born in Ottawa, Kansas; Forrest, at the age of 5, with his mom and younger brother, moved to Southern California. A graduate of Crawford H.S. in San Diego, Forrest would go on to become a highly sought-after motor vehicle forensic expert with over 43 ASE Master Mechanic certifications including, ASE certified Advanced Level Specialist. As well as a phenomenal automotive instructor for the San Diego Community College District, including TIA Automotive Tire Service Instructor certification.

Forrest would always jump at the chance to share his knowledge and love for automotive engineering --- whether it was helping his students on their “weekend projects”; to opening his home garage to neighbors to teach & help repair their vehicles, to teaching his grandson how to install a new car stereo system.

Forrest was always cool and calm in the courtroom, patient in the classroom, and the loudest cheerer at his daughter’s dance recitals & son’s soccer games. He was always the first to lend a tool, share his knowledge, pick up litter on his daily multi-mile walks, and help his friends, family, and neighbors. Forrest’s pride in his adult children was only superseded by his pride in his grandchildren. To whom he passed along his mechanical inclinations, sense of humor, sense of exploration, and never-ending love.

Forrest died of complications from Multiple Myeloma. He is proceeded in death by his mom and dad; and his son, Scott Edward Folck. Those who will continue to share stories of his greatness are: his daughter, Christine Folck; daughter-in-law, Sheryl Talmage Folck; his grandsons Matthew Richter (Christine’s son) & Nolan Folck (Sheryl’s son); his granddaughter, Sally Richter (Christine’s daughter); his brother, Dave Folck; his nephew Darrell Folck; his nieces Melinda Folck and Jessica Folck; and several other relatives, fellow mechanics, instructors, courtroom adversaries, and friends.

Services will be held on Thursday, January 3, 2018, at La Mesa, First United Methodist Church, at 4690 Palm Ave, La Mesa, CA. In lieu of flowers, the family ask that those interested, send donations to the Forrest Folck Memorial Fund at Navy Federal Credit Union. Monies donated will be utilized to create a scholarship fund for those students studying to become motor vehicle mechanics and ASE master mechanics.

Forrest was an incredibly kind man and will be missed very much by anyone’s life he touched.
