Farming Rural 20

Graydon Jackson FORD

July 12, 1945 ~ May 24, 2019 (age 73)


Graydon J. Ford of Wasa, BC, passed away peacefully on May 24th, 2019, after a courageous battle with cancer. He was loved and respected by many. Graydon was the son of Graydon Sr. and Frances Jeannette Dickey (nee) from Vancouver.  He is predeceased by his three sisters Abigail (Patrick), Sarah (Trevor), and Nini (Brig).  Graydon is survived by his brother Douglas (Karin), nephews Anthony, Brooks, and Scott; and nieces Pilar, Andrea, and Isabel.  Special to Graydon was Barbara (predeceased) and her three daughters Britta, Ulla, and Maja.  

“Bro”, as he was affectionately referred to by his family, grew up in Vancouver where he attended Vancouver College before relocating to Wasa to live and manage the ranch that was eventually bequeathed to him by his grandmother Catherine.  He farmed his whole life and always had a few pets to greet folks as they dropped by to say hello and marvel at the lake and mountains.  In addition to farming, Graydon’s other passion was being a Fire Warden for the area for which he was greatly respected for.  His kindness, generosity, and stories will be sorely missed.  

A sincere thank you to his friends in the community and to Cherished Memories Funeral Services for their assistance. Details for a celebration of life will be forwarded to family and friends and listed on in the near future.
