Littleton

Christopher Clark Ford, 79 passed away on July 7th 2023 in Littleton, CO. He was born in Green Bay WI, the youngest of three children. Chris was an avid sailor from the time he was very young. He grew up sailing on the Great Lakes, and enjoying the Northwoods. He was also an avid skier for many years.

He graduated from Northern Michigan University with a degree in Economics and entered the Army in the fall of 1966. Because of his knowledge of skiing and boats, the Army sent him to Ft. Greely. AK where he trained soldiers at the Northern Warfare Training Center. The primary focus was teaching soldiers headed to Viet Nam, river boat navigation. Upon separation from the Army, he completed a Master’s degree in Economics.

Chris worked for the telephone company until retirement. He came out of retirement twice: once to take a one-year contract in Germany and later to work on mobile systems in Iraq and Sacramento, CA

He cared a lot about helping others, volunteering for years for Habitat for Humanity, and through his participation in St. Andrew Church plowing and shoveling the church for years, and continued until the winter before his death plowing out his neighbors drives and walks with his huge snowblower. Also, through his church, he bought carts full of food for food pantries twice a month. He also didn’t forget first responders, bringing pizzas to his local fire station every 6 weeks.

He is survived and deeply missed by his wife, Janet, daughter, Susan, son Michael, grandchildren, nephews, nieces and friends.

A celebration of Life will be held at St. Andrew Church at 10:30 August 5th. In lieu of flowers, donations could be given to St. Andrew outreach, East Elementary Market Fund, or Integrative Family Community Services.
