Forrest L. Wood, Founder of Ranger Boats, Passes Away

We have some heartbreaking news to report this morning. Forrest L. Wood has just passed away peacefully surrounded by family, including his beloved wife of 68 years, Nina Wood. This news comes four days after FLW announced he was in critical condition at Baxter Regional Medical Center in Mountain Home, Arkansas.

Funeral Services for Forrest L. Wood will be at Flippin First Baptist Church at Noon on Wednesday, January 29, 2020. Due to the expected turnout, additional parking will be at Hickey Park (123 Hickey Park Place) and Vexus Boats (727 W. Industrial Park Road). Shuttles will be provided before and after the service.

Following the funeral, the family will receive ALL friends in the Fellowship Hall at the church. A reception and appetizers in the Family Life Center will take place in conjunction with the visitation.

A graveside burial will be private.

For those that knew Forrest, then you will also know that Jeans and Boots will do just fine.
