My husband, Jack Eugene Ford, a resident of Haltom City Texas for 9 years, and well known for his capacity to love and respect everyone who knew him, passed away on 12/01/2020 after a long battle of diverse illnesses and pain.
Jack was one of the two children of Jack and Sally Brown, growing up in Irving Texas most of his younger life, a city he considered his home town and remained a special place in his heart full of wonderful memories.
Jack became a self-contractor expert at the installation of different flooring techniques, a hard worker who took pride in his craft, a job that eventually damaged the health of his body in an irreversible way.
Jack was a caring father to his children Lisa, Jackson and Anthony, helping raise them and guide them in their early years and into adulthood. He was also a great stepdad to Ernest and Jessica and a wonderful grandfather to Michael. All of whom respected and loved him for his simplistic way of providing safety and care and loved them as his own.
He was a wonderful companion, best friend and love to Rita for over 20 years, always making her feel cherished and safe with his strong presence and kindness. He has earned his eternal rest, we shall miss him and honor him in our memory every day.
Jack was predeceased by his parents and his sweet son “Jackson”. He leaves behind his wife Rita Ford; brothers Tony and Mark Ford; his sister, Candy and her husband Bill Thornburg; his daughter Lisa Ford and son Anthony; his step children Jessica Carr, Michael Carr and Ernest Trevino; and a crowd of nephews, nieces, and cousins.
There will be a celebration of Jack’s life for his family and friends at 10 am, Monday, December 7th at Forest Ridge Funeral Home, 8525 Mid Cities Blvd, North Richland Hills, Tx 76182. The Service will be officiated by his nephew Reverend David Ford of Celebration Church New Orleans.
