It is with unspeakable shock and sadness that we let you know that our husband, father, grandad, brother, uncle, pastor, and friend, Ford Quinlan, died suddenly on May 3, 2017.

This depression got the better of him early this morning, when he left the house alone, walked to a nearby pond and, to all appearances, ended his own life.
