Forrest Run was established in 1984 in Sherwood, Wisconsin by the Wittmann and Gavaert families . In 1994, it was purchased by Pat Fahrenkrug, a native of the Fox Valley.  Pat has extensive experience in funeral homes and pet cremation and burial services.  He has been a licensed Funeral Director since 1994.  Forrest Run has always been a family-run business, with a focus on helping families in their time of need.

In 2016 Forrest Run was purchased by Derek Van Deurzen who was born and raised in Little Chute.  Derek is a funeral director and the owner of Verkuilen-Van Deurzen Family Funeral Home in Little Chute and Freedom.  His caring and compassionate nature makes him a natural fit for carrying on the next generation of Forrest Run.  Pat truly enjoys his work at Forrest Run and continues on as the Operations Manager, while also working as a funeral director for Derek.
