Roger E. Ford, age 56, of Toledo, Ohio, died suddenly while at work, Monday morning, December 4, 2017, of an aortic aneurysm. He was born April 16, 1961 in Campbellsville, Kentucky to Gladys (Keltner) and Donald Ford. Roger was a graduate of Campbellsville High School and married Cathy Brewer. Even though they later divorced, they remained close friends.
Roger moved to Toledo in July of 1996 and worked for his uncle driving truck. In June of 2000, he began working for Cavins Trucking Company in Perrysburg, Ohio. He had a passion for driving truck. He was a very dependable driver with no safety violations throughout his career. However, his greatest passion was his trust in God as his Savior. He was a member of the Swanton Baptist Church.
He will be greatly missed by his co-workers and friends; his church family; his ex-wife, Cathy Budd; his girlfriend, Dora Friesner; and most of all the light of his life and special Goddaughter, Rylie Budd, with whom he had such an unbreakable bond with.
Roger was preceded in death by his parents.
