Former Dresden Alderman and Community Leader Dies

May 23rd, 2013 - By Steve James

Long time community leader in the Weakley County area Mike Forchione has passed away at the age of 62.

Forchione first moved to Dresden in 1982 and served on various city and county boards and was a two term alderman for the city of Dresden as well.

Dresden Mayor Danny Forrester said he always enjoyed his time with Forchione in the city government and he always worked to improve the city and the entire county.

Along with serving as alderman, Forchione served on the city planning commission, the industrial board, the Iris Festival board of directors, and was a two term president of the Weakley County Chamber of Commerce.

He’s survived by his wife Tomi. A Memorial service will be from 5pm until 7pm Monday night at the First Baptist Church in Dresden.
