I’m sorry to hear that respected author Winston Groom has passed away at the age of 77.

A 1965 The University of Alabama graduate, Mr. Groom authored several classic novels including “Forrest Gump”.
Said Mr. Groom about his character Forrest Gump, “Forrest may not be terribly smart, but he’s kind and honest and compassionate.”
There’s a lot to be said about that.

Winston Groom, one of UA’s most famous alums, lived in Fairhope with his wife Susan.

I hope you can join me in sending condolences to the family and thank Mr. Groom for the joy he brought all of us.

Saddened to hear from the Fairhope Mayor’s office that Point Clear resident and famous author Winston Groom has passed away at 77. I had the honor of interviewing him when he was promoting one of his non-fiction works years after Forrest Gump was published. A humble gent despite his success, Groom did not appear weary of taking questions about the book which later earned him best-seller status when Forrest Gump the movie won six Academy Awards after hitting theaters eight years later in 1994. As Hollywood does, it took several liberties that strayed from the book, but it’s still one of my all-time favorite movies. May he R.I.P. with a quote from Gump: “Mama always said, dying was a part of life. I sure wish it wasn’t.” #forrestgump #winstongroom

Unhappily, a great writer, Winston Groom has passed. I was very pleased when he turned up at a Fairhope bookstore when I was there on book tour. On a personal note, he is a month younger and we both served in the 4th Infantry Division in Vietnam. Sigh.
