Forrest J. Outland, age 84, a longtime resident of Janesville, passed away early Monday morning, October 21, 2019 at Agrace Center for Hospice & Palliative Care, Janesville. He was born April 4, 1935 in Marshal County, Iowa, the son of the late Frank & Kathryn (Bloyer) Outland. He graduated from Beech High School, Beech, IA. On October 6, 1956 he married the former Virginia L. Thompson at First Lutheran Church in Des Moines, IA.

He returned to Des Moines where he was a Police Officer for the Des Moines Police Dept. for 5 years. He then moved to Janesville, where he was a Police Officer on the Janesville Police Dept. from 1967 until 1978. Forrest then went to work with the Rock County Sheriff’s Office in 1978, retiring in 1999. He enjoyed fishing, camping, target shooting, wood carving, square dancing, puzzles and playing cribbage.
