The wonderful gift of life was given to Dylan Cole Ford on the 21st day of November 1994 in North Richland Hills, Texas to parents Sherri Ford (Sneed) and Mark Ford. Dylan Cole Ford (also known as “Duke”) was called home on November 6, 2018 into his heavenly father’s loving arms.
He is survived by his parents Mark Ford (Shelly) and Sherri Ford, his brother Chase Ford, step brother Jeramy Allen, Grandfather Jim Ford (Mary Ann), Uncle Jody Sneed (Gail), Cousins Joshua and Matthew Sneed of Midland, TX, along with multiple lifelong close friends, and adopted families, locally and in distant towns too.
On November 8th, a candlelight vigil was held after sunset at Foster Village Park, attended by numerous friends and family who released balloons with written messages of their last goodbyes in his memory.
Duke was a naturally gifted athlete that loved and excelled in travel ice hockey, golf, (making varsity in his high school freshman year) baseball and skateboarding. Dylan also was an aviation enthusiast, loved drag-racing and the smell of nitromethane from top fuel cars.
In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting nominal donations to the Salvation Army which can be made at the following site: Salvation Army
