TEVIN FORD was born November 29,1993 to Terrell Ford Sr. and Darlene S. St Romain at Opelousas General Hospital i n Opelousas, La. Terrell welcomed his second son at approximately 3:45pm. In the early morning hours of Christmas Day, Tevin Ford exchanged this life for eternal fellowship with the Lord.
He was a graduate of Cornerstone Christian Academy and continued his education and received his certification in nondestructive testing. During Tevin's life he always sought to be successful. While in school he worked along side of his mother, brother & two sisters at Sylvia’s Caring Companions Health Care Services, a family owned business located in Bunkie, Opelousas & Baton Rouge Louisiana. He then began farming while working towards his nondestructive testing certification. He went on to work in his field and branched out to the rail road, ,dredging and an array of other careers.
Shortly after, Tevin became a small business owner, and dedicated entrepreneur. He owned and operated his very own trucking company, T2Logistics, LLC,named in honor of The Ford Brothers, located in Bunkie La. ZTT Road Service, Another Chance PCS, & Atchafalaya Industrial. In addition to running his own businesses, he was also a proud volunteer fire fighter. He was a proud country boy that loved the outside and all that comes with the country way of life. He had a passion for racing and restoring cars, hunting, fishing, and riding ATVs.
Tevin's pride and joy was his love for his children and family.
Everyone who knew Tevin knew how special he was. His outgoing personality was one of his best qualities. He always made efforts to look out for his family, especially his mother, Darlene,and his sisters Gabrielle & Terrielle. Definitely, a Mama's boy to say the least. While he was wonderfully outgoing, he was stubborn at times, a quality of many "do it-yourselfers" from the country area. He loved fixing things on his own and took great pride in successfully finishing projects and expanding endeavors related to his businesses, homes and cars.
Speaking of cars, Tevin was a car enthusiast to say the least. He loved speed from a young age, spending much of his youth working on cars and going to racetracks very often. Over the years he owned many atv's, motorcycles, trucks and cars, which included classics from the 80's to modern sport cars.
Tevin cared very much for those around him. He was a loving father to his children and he improved the lives of those closest to him tremendously. Tevin was an extremely humble man but he did love to "shine".
There are infinite amounts of unforgettable memories embedded in the mind and hearts of all that was fortunate enough to cross paths with him and he will be missed dearly.

Ford Sr. (Dionne); three beautiful kids, Ziyah Ford, Tai Lynn Ford, and Tevin Ford Jr; two girls he took as his own Za Miriyah Mouton and Marleigh Red; one grandmother, Annie Ford; two sisters, Gabrielle Smith & Terrielle Ford. two uncles, Sandy Coleman (Stephanie), and Kenneth Ford; aunts, Marie Hayes, Annie L Coleman (John), Dorothy Scott (James) Billie Powell (Kennedy), Carol Richard(Peter), Pamela Mason, Cherry Jimmerson (Lee), Rhonda Lewis (Darrin), La Tonya Shead(Kevin) and Lorenza Takoue (Guy); his significant other, Kiaria Parish.
