I was so surprise when I heard of Leon passing. My heart goes out to the family. I met Leon at Lew Wallace. He would come into the office everyday just to say Hi!! Leon was such a good kid. I remember all his siblings at Lew Wallace High School. I also recall Mr. Ford coming up to the school for one of his kids, Mr. Ford you are an true model for all your kids. I know all your hearts are heavy now, but know Leon is looking down on his family watching over you.
Love always Mrs. Adams

I am very sorry for the loss of our Dear Spiritual Brother, Leon Ford Jr. I have known him to be a quiet spirit, but a spirit which was filled with much light, love, dedication, and great service unto the Lord, his wife, loved ones and all that he knew him. I will miss his powerful angelic voice, kind spirit and handsome smile. He was a fantastic husband to my Dear Spiritual Sister, Charlotta Ford. Thoughts and prayers continue to go up for the family. God will see this family through. Love you all!
