Shawn F. Forte

Shawn Fredrick Forte (Fort), 55, Kokomo, passed away on Monday, July 11, 2016, at Golden Living Center Sycamore Village in Kokomo, where he succumbed to cancer. He was born on December 22, 1961, in Kokomo, and the son of the late Roland H. & Australia S. (Kirby) Fort.

Shawn was a graduate of Kokomo High School. He joined the United States Army where he served from 1980-1983. He worked for the Kokomo Housing Authority.

Fort, Cincinnati, OH; three sisters, Sarita M. (Moses) Mickens, Louisville, KY, Rolanda L. (Larry) Smith, Indianapolis, and Lillian E. Hardy, Kokomo, along with a host of nieces and nephews.
