Robert Forsyth


B: September 10, 1949 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

D: September 13, 1999

Robert Forsyth grew up in Saskatchewan but left at the age of 17 to study general arts at York University in Toronto. Later, out of work, Robert, or Rob as he was usually known, found himself on a sinking boat just off of the coast of Greece. Impending tragedy prompted Rob and a friend to talk about what jobs they might consider on a hate scale. They ended up with law at the top and writing as the least hated profession. And so Rob Forsyth became a writer. He moved to Toronto and later settled in Stratford, Ontario.
