Retired physician, Dr. Forth Naisang, passed away February 27, 2022. He was a Christ-follower, husband, father to five, grandfather to 22, and great-grandfather to three. He left a lasting legacy of faith and hope to his family and community.
Forth was the first of his family to immigrate from Myanmar to the United States in the 1950’s with the purpose of completing a medical degree. Once completed, he met and married Judy, and they settled down in the Asheville area to raise their 5 children, Judith Lynne, Robert, James, Elizabeth, and Joanna.
During his 85 years, Forth was known to share the Gospel through word and deed, ministering to people’s souls and physical needs. Passionate for the Word of God and for his people, he translated the English Bible into his Chin dialect, Zanniat, along with a book of hymns. He wanted his life to reflect the God he loved; over his lifetime, he volunteered with youth groups, served his local church, supported homeless shelters and youth camps, and founded Chin Hills Ministries with Judy for the purpose of building a seminary as well as provide continued support to students and orphanages in his native country of Myanmar.
Visitation with his family will be Thursday, March 3rd, at Groce Funeral Home on Tunnel Road from 6-8.
His Celebration of Life service will be held at Trinity of Fairview March 4th, at 2:00 pm.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Chin Hills Ministries PO Box 295, Fairview, NC 28730.
