In memory of Pat Forman, Sealstrip founder, friend, and family.
Harold “Pat” Forman, 91, peacefully passed away on Sunday, October 14, 2018.
Pat Forman was an entrepreneur and inventor. From 1959 until 2018, he founded four packaging companies, culminating in the incorporation of Sealstrip, held many patents, and invented many of the companies’ products – which are still in use today.
After stepping down from his role as Sealstrip president, ever-passionate, Pat continued to develop new products leading the R&D Department. His never-failing inventor’s mind remained focused on creation and development of packaging solutions.
Pat is remembered by employees, vendors and customers as a kind heart and brilliant mind, who created jobs, a company, and a legacy which continues to flourish in the spirit it was created.
Pat will be missed, and his memory will live on in all of us.
