Edward Joseph Ford



Edward Joseph Ford, 93, passed away peacefully, with his loving family by his side, on Saturday December 2, 2017 at Tidelands Waccamaw Community Hospital in Murrells Inlet. He was born on October 23, 1924, in Kearny, New Jersey, to the late James and Olive Moore Ford.

Along with his parents, Ed is preceded in passing by his beloved wife of nearly 50 years, Elizabeth Ford.

Ed worked for many years as a custodian for New Jersey Public School System. Following his retirement, he was able to enjoy the finer things in life. He loved to bowl, fish, gamble, eat, read the newspaper and watch the Giants play football. Ed was a marvelous woodworker and took so much pride in being able to spend time with his family and playing with his beloved great-grandchild.

Left to cherish Ed’s memory is his adoring daughter, Carolyn Dougan and her husband, Bill; his grandsons, Michael Dougan and his wife, Janeva & Andrew Dougan, all of Myrtle Beach; his great-grandchild, Thomas Dougan, as well as one on the way; and his nieces, Barbara Lardieri, Cathy Lardieri and Diane Kennedy.
