|Birth: ||Jul. 29, 1950|
New York, USA
|Death: ||May 9, 2009|
Keith is my cousin. His father was
Carlton Ford, his mother is Grace Cannon Ford. His only sister is Veda Carleen Ford Cook. His loving wife, Debra Lowry Ford.
Keith suffered from liver disease. He was waiting for and anticipating a liver transplant. He lived a very full life, but the last two years he was very, very ill.
He died in surgery while they were putting a stent in his liver to help drain fluid build up. Totally unexpected death.
I'm divulging this because of the need for organ donors. There are so many people waiting for organ transplants. Keith would be alive today had a liver become available for him in time. My hope and prayer is that everyone that can WILL become donors. It is a private and personal decision each person has to make.
He has also joined in eternal rest his maternal grandparents Noah and Ocie Cannon; his cousin Ted Helton Davis and his maternal great aunt Quaynah Cannon McIntosh.
