Justin “Jud” loved his life and brought joy to many people. During his lifetime he enjoyed being a member of the Elks Club, Moose Lodge, bowling, golfing, working out, boating, dining out and spending time with his wife and taking trips to see his family.
Justin Lee Ford’s life cannot possibly be adequately described in any form of a reductionist listing of vocations, interests, calendar dates and genealogy because he was so much more to those who had the pleasure of knowing him. Justin was a physically-strong man and was always growing and becoming more sensitive, gentle, loving and fully alive throughout his lifetime. He will be loved by us throughout eternity, just as we know that his love for us is eternal and infinite in nature.
Justin Lee Ford (the husband, dad, family member and friend) will never truly die because he will live forever inside us all as his life continues to make an impact throughout the world!
