Avery Lynwood Ford November 11, 1936 – August 12, 2017

Filed under: Life,Obituaries |

Our beloved Avery Ford was born on November 11, 1936 in Gladewater, Texas. As a young man, he moved to California and in 2005 he returned to his home state of Texas.

On August 12, 2017 Avery died of chronic heart failure.

Avery is survived by his wife, Emma Ford; three children, Eric Ford and his wife, Faith, Cheryl Baptiste and her husband, Mark, Marci Roddy and her husband, Keith; four grandchildren, Kevin Atkins, Sydnee Roddy, Kennedy Baptiste and Kyle Baptiste; and his two sisters, Rose Ford and Eva Rose Fagan; and a host of other loving relatives and dear friends.

Avery was a music lover, devout sports fan and loved to entertain. Once you met Avery he became more than a friend. He became your family, your adopted uncle, dad, cousin or brother.

Who was Avery to you? To his wife he was the love of her life. To his children and grandchildren he “ROCKED!”. To his family, friends and anyone who had the pleasure of spending time with him, found him to be a trusted mentor, role model and truly unique warm hearted man.

Avery will truly be missed and he will forever live on in our hearts.

Memorial services will begin at 12:00 pm, Saturday, August 19, 2017, at Jaynes Memorial Chapel.
