June 3, 1950 –¬†April 23, 2016

Dennis L. Ford, Sr., age 65, of Wilmington, DE, passed away on Saturday, April 23, 2016.

A native Delawarean, Dennis was born in Wilmington on June 3, 1950 and was a son of the late William Ford, Jr. and Olive E. (Heller) Ford. He made his career as a maintenance technician with Westover Companies in King of Prussia, PA, retiring after many years of dedicated service.

An avid NASCAR fan, Dennis looked forward to each racing season and enjoyed following the sport. He adored spending time with his grandchildren, whom he cherished. Thoughtful and giving, Dennis had a heart of gold and always put others before himself.

    Dennis was a funny guy. We shared our love of racing and both pulled for Dale Jr. He would call after each race with a funny comment. Jonathan he loved you so much and spoke of you and your family each time he called. I know you will miss him. RIP Dennis, you made it to the finish line.

    Loosing a loved one leaves a heartache that no one can heal but their loving memory is a precious gift that no one can steal. RIP Uncle Dennis. We all love you!

    Memories is all we have that last a lifetime. I’m thankful that I have many to remember like going to the track, and the bowling alley. In my eyes when I was a kid you were a dedicated worker, and loved your children unconditionally. And I will always be grateful that you raised me like I was your own for 12 years. Love Jodi
