Obituary for Robert 'Bob' Ford

Robert J. ‘Bob’ Ford, age 76 of Bay City, formerly of Southfield, passed away Wednesday, June 5, 2019 at McLaren Bay Region. He was born February 20, 1943 in McKeesport, Pennsylvania to Bill and Mary Ford.

Bob grew up in Washington, Pennsylvania and graduated from Washington High School in 1961. After graduation, he joined the US Air Force and served proud from 1961 until 1965 and was stationed in Minnesota, South Korea, and Michigan. After the military, he worked at General Motors for almost 20 years. Bob was an active member of the American Legion and served as Commander of the Berkley Post 374 in the 80s. He enjoyed travelling and spending time with his family. He loved jokes and stories and was also very good at shooting pool.

In 1987, Bob was involved in a life threatening automobile accident. The years following were difficult, but he never let his humor leave him or let the accident hold him back. He was a good man who will be greatly missed.

He is survived by his wife, Jeannie; his sons, Robert J. Ford, II and Steven (Kate) Ford; stepchildren, Krysti (Joe) Rodriguez and Brandon Udell; and grandchildren, Robert, Nelson, Christian, and Darian. Preceding him in death are his first wife, Judith (1998); his parents; and siblings, Betty, Bill, and Erma.

The family will receive friends Sunday 12:00 PM until the time of the funeral service 2:00 PM at the Sawyer-Fuller Funeral Home, 2125 12 Mile Road, Berkley (two blocks west of Woodward Avenue).
