Ken Ford Fund

On Saturday, September 30, the Ford family lost a beloved husband, father, and son. The day before, Ken Ford was driving to work at 6 a.m. on his Harley when he was abruptly struck by an oncoming driver on the curve of Perry Road outside of Kaneville, Illinois. He was tranferred to Delnor Hospital in Geneva, but unfortunately, he passed away the next day at 1:57 p.m. 

At the time of his passing, he was surrounded by his loved ones, including his wife, Barb, two daughters, Jessica and Danielle, his parents, Arthur and Linda Ford, his aunt, Joann, and brother, Troy. 

Ken had the biggest most-generous heart, always willing to help others. So it's no surprise that he was a registered organ donor. The medical team is in the process of the donation procedure, and due to his act of kindness, he has the possibility to save up to eight lives.

At this time, the arrangements for the wake and funeral are to be determined, but in lieu of flowers, donations to the family are being requested.

Family and friends,
We are asking for your help to aid the Ford family through such a difficult time due to the unexpected loss. We want to raise money to help the family in any way because Ken was the sole provider as Barb was unable to work for the last 4 months due to medical issues. Any donation would go a long way to help the family.

Thank you for all your love and support already and any way you can help in the future.
