Obituary for M. William Ford

M. William (Bill) Ford, at 89 years of age, passed away peacefully on March 31, 2021, in Fern Park, Florida.
Bill is survived by his four children, Linda, Carolyn, Bill and Bob, as well as eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
Born in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, he earned an electrical engineering degree from Temple University. He married Elva Mann in Levittown, Pennsylvania in 1952. They moved to West Palm Beach and eventually Maitland, Florida.
He worked in the early development of the Florida electronics field, starting at Martin Marietta, now Lockheed Martin and moving into a consultant position in his later career.
Bill was a man of many talents and interests, from square and line dance calling to the painting he took up after the passing of his wife, becoming quite prolific. Bill was also an accomplished sailor, with multiple trips to the Florida Keys and back. He also took flying lessons in his later years. Bill travelled extensively over the course of his life, the most recent being to Switzerland a couple of years ago.
Bill was an entertainer and loved making people laugh and dance.
