James Alvie Ford was born in Little River, Arkansas on October 6, 1937 to the late George Washington Ford and Mabel Fraze Ford. He was one of eleven siblings born to this union.
Besides his parents; brothers, George Thomas Ford, David William Ford, Roger Dale Ford, Bobby Lee Ford, and Jacky Edward Ford, Sisters, Betty Jo Lindsey, and Louise Ford, also preceded James in death.
James had special needs that kept him from going to school or marrying, but he still enjoyed life to the fullest.
James loved coloring in his coloring books, and being outdoors mowing and helping around the yard. He liked to sit and watch television and drink “Dr. Pepper”. James also enjoyed going to Church.
He loved his family and was very protective of his brother, Donald. James was a loving man that stole everyone’s heart, and made everyone laugh.
On December 28, 2012, the Lord called James home. He will be greatly missed down here by his family and many friends, but our loss is Heaven’s gain.
