Please share a memory of David to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
David Francis Ford–dedicated husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend-passed away unexpectedly on March 19, 2023. He was 42. David was born to Edward and Patricia Ford in Ranson, West Virginia on January 9, 1981. He graduated from Morgantown High School in 1999 before graduating from Bethany College in 2004. David played basketball and baseball for many years before turning his entire focus to his favorite game of basketball. He played for MHS throughout his high school years and played at Bethany College for 2 years. David and his beautiful wife Amanda (Mandy) were married on August 11, 2007. Together they have 2 amazing sons, Carson and Kohen. Their family could often be found tailgating for WVU games, hosting parties, spending time with friends and family, and traveling to basketball games. David was the Director of Operations for Therapy Services, L.L.C. for the past 18 years. Outside of work, he could be found most of the time watching his sons’ playing basketball, as well as coaching many of their teams in the past. David truly lived his life as a family man. David is survived by his wife-Amanda (Mandy), sons-Carson and Kohen, parents-Edward and Pat Ford, his sister-Rene (Bill) Brown, and his nephew and nieces–Aidan, Abigail, and McKenna Morrissey. He has countless family members, friends, and co-workers who will miss his dedication to his family and his work.

DiBacco as celebrant. In keeping with David’s wishes, cremation will follow the services. He will be entombed at a later date in a private ceremony with family at Peace Gardens located at Saint Mary Roman Catholic Church.
