James Edward Ford was born on August 8, 1950 to the late Alfred Ford and the late Doris Gray Ford. He accepted Jesus Christ at an early age at St. Mark Baptist Church under the leadership of the late Rev. Edges Williams and continued under the present leadership of Pastor Goldman Chapman. He attended Job Corp in Oklahoma City in 1966.
He loved Christ and was greatly shown by his dedication in helping everyone. He was dedicated and devoted to what to he did. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends. He fought a good fight, a fight filled with courage. Through all the pain and suffering, his faith never wavered. Even in pain, he never once complained. James departed this life on June 27, 2020. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. 2 Corinthian 5:8
