Bill was born in Madisonville, Kentucky to William and Edythe (Farrar) Ford. He attended Southwestern Assemblies of God College where he met Blanche Kinsey. They married on September 4, 1965 and raised 3 children – Becky, Beth and Will III.
Bill’s loyalty to God, to his family and to Lauren Engineers & Constructors was steadfast. His responsibilities within Industrial Construction procurement and management provided family adventures throughout the United States. In each place the family lived Bill served in various capacities through church, including teacher, Board Member, Sunday School superintendent, drama director, choir director and playing organ, saxophone or accordion. He thoroughly enjoyed cooking for many events. Bill was extremely competitive - a trait he proudly passed to most of his offspring! He was known to challenge with Scrabble or Backgammon to win big. After retiring, you could find Bill on his tractor cutting, baling hay, tending his cattle, or riding ATV’s with his grandchildren. His strong passion for Global Missions led to trips around the world assisting in evangelizing and building schools and churches. Bill Jr. was preceded in death by his parents, his sister Beverly and brother Byron.
He is survived by his wife, Blanche; children Becky, Beth and William III; grandchildren Bryan, Anthony, Trevor, Silas, Solomon, Selah, Shiloh, Seraiah; great-grandchildren Kylie, Bristol and Winter; brothers Shane (Shelley), John (Kira) and Blake (Brandi) along with nieces, nephews and cousins.
