Born March 20, 1920 in Bienville Parish to Willie and Mae Ford Caskey. He was a member of Friendship Baptist Church in Friendship, LA.
He was an Army veteran of WWII. He was a farmer, cowboy and off shore oil platform worker for 22 years in the Gulf Coast, Venezuela, Argentina, Saudi Arabia and Nigeria.
He was a country philosopher that had a way of putting nuggets of wisdom into numerous remarks.
Charlie Ford insisted on living a simple life without a lot of clutter to distract him from what was important to him, helping family, especially children and feeding anyone that entered his house- he was a great country cook.
He was always a happy, content man that was never pulled down by the troubles of life. Ford was much loved and one of the foundations of his family, and will be much missed by those who knew him.
He was preceded in death by his parents, a step-mother and one brother.
