John Kavanaugh Ford Jr.,
61, of Campbell, TX passed away on November 6, 2020 at Medical
City- Plano due to
complications from a brain aneurysm twelve days earlier.
John was born January 29,
1959 in Washington D.C., the only child to John and Gloria Ford.
John was a quiet man who
loved the outdoors, reading, and relaxing with family and friends. He
lived much of his life in
San Diego, CA where he met Aurora and, in 1987, they married. In
1996, they moved to
Campbell, TX where he was hired at L-3 in Greenville and has worked for
the past 24 years. His lifelong love of the
outdoors began at an early age while in Boy Scouts where he went on to
earn the rank of Eagle
Scout. As an adult, John continued to serve as a Scout Leader while
raising his son Michael to
also become an Eagle Scout.
John is survived by his
wife of 33 years, Aurora Ford; his three children, Angela Ford, Michael
Ford, Michelle Dudley,
son-in-law Tony Dudley and two grandchildren Leo and Isabella (due in
December); his parents John
Ford Sr. and Gloria Ford.
