Farster Lost His Life After Being Struck by A Truck While In A Crosswalk

Sadly, last week Bob Farster lost his life in a tragic accident. He was struck by a truck in a crosswalk while in his wheelchair.

As a MATFORCE volunteer, Bob reached over 12,800 youth and adults with his personal story about the harms of alcohol and drug abuse. In his 11 years of service to the community, Bob participated in almost 580 presentations in schools, youth detention centers, civic organizations, and more. His heart was for the youth of our county. He will be greatly missed.

In honor of his memory and years of dedication to MATFORCE, a memorial service was held for Farster on October 7th.
