Farris Ford Goodbread
Birth: Mar. 9, 1943
Steinhatchee
Taylor County
Florida, USA
Death: Mar. 2, 2008
San Leandro
Alameda County
California, USA

Farris Ford Goodbread was a very devoted husband, father and grand father. He was born and raised in Florida with his sisters Annie Kate Blitch and Margarette Heartsfield who still reside in Florida. He was preceded in death by his parents Amy and James Russell Goodbread and his brothers Jimmy Goodbread and R.A. Goodbread. He served our country in Vietnam aboard the U.S.S. Ranger CV A-61. He married my mother Eleanor Ford (Goodbread) in 1968 and had me Chris Ford (Goodbread) in 1970 and my brother Peter Ford (Goodbread) in 1971. He worked for the City of Oakland as an electrician for 28 years. He also had his own electrical contracting business. He retired from the city and bought a screen business that has been very lucrative. He did that for about 10 years. He was diagnosed with lung cancer that spread to his liver about the end of 2006. He underwent chemo and radiation treatment which slowed it down, but eventually it took him from us. He passed away on March 2nd, 2008 at 10:41PM surrounded by his family. He is survived by his loving wife Eleanor, sons Chris and Peter. Sister-in-law Connie, grandson Tony, and several nieces and nephews, and his cat Casey.

At his funeral there were friends of his from the City of Oakland. One of them said "we lost one of the best electricians the city ever had". He was right. I guess God needed the best electrician. I LOVE YOU DAD. Your Son, Chris.
May God welcome you into his Heavenly Kingdom with open arms.
