We will always have fond memories of
Ted. He was a devoted father, husband and community member. We will always remember his 90th Birhday Party at the El Capitan and his large mounted buck that year. He will be missed by everyone.

Eleanor and Fornetti family
We were sad to hear about Ted's passing. I have great memories of Ted first having my teeth fixed by the gentle man with a great smile. I remember living next door and babysitting for Judy and Ted. Ted always made sure that I got home safe. I remember him coming over to my dad's house to plow the driveway of snow when it was hard for my dad to do it. Mike got to know Ted

I am so sorry to here about your father, he was a very kind man and I had him for a dentist for all of my years growing up in Kingsford. I knew he was a great man of compassion, especially when you see all he did for the under privledged people. I know GOD blessed Dr. Fornetti with a long and fruitful life because of the blessings he provided for others. And now he is walking the streets of gold. RIP Dr. Fornetti.

Eleanor, Judy, Teddy, Tony, Tish, and sincere condolences and prayers out to you. My memories of growing up next door to you will never be forgotten nor go unappreciated. Doc and Eleanor were so ever gracious to me throughout my young life........putting up with me showing up (regularly) unannounced to swim in the pool, terrorizing your lawn with my minibike and snowmobile, and nearly killing ourselves over the lawn sprinklers in our football games! Such terrific memories. And Doc

To all of the Fornetti family, we are so sad to hear of Teds passing. He was such a wonderful person, who will be saddly missed by many. He was my dentist,fromI when I was a child, until his retirement and then went on to Tony as my dentist for many yrs. I'm sure he was so proud of his sons and grandsons following in his footsteps to practice dentistry in his home town!!

Dear Eleanor and family,
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Dr. Fornetti. I learned of his, and your generosity and met you when helping on the Bay West Yes committee, and it touched me deeply what he and your family do for this community. I am now a returning student at that beautiful campus, and will send up a prayer when I enter. I appreciate your kindness and friendship at church, I will miss his friendly face and smile. God bless~!
