Paula and Dale Ford are lifelong Trinity Members. Their children, Brad and Heather Long both grew up in our congregation. Today, Brad and his wife, Emily and son Brayden (3) live in Clermong, Florida, and daughter Heather and husband Phil Teplitz are in Arlington, Virginia.
The Ford’s family is a big priority for them, as is their church family. Although sometimes a challenge, maintaining current relationships and welcoming new faces and the personalities with them is an important part of their church life. Both Fords are active in the choir, and are cheerful givers of their time, talent and treasures to many activities here at Trinity.
Both Paua and Dale have fond memories of Luther League activities including the Halloween Parties and camping. The Youth Choir was also a part of their young lives here at Trinity.
For 21 years, Dale has maintained his own business, Dale M. Ford Construction, and Paula serves as Customer Service Manager at Blaine Window and a dedicated Hospice volunteer. The Fords enjoy travelling, the beach, skiing, trains and their always lovely perennial flower and vegetable gardens.
They are also passionate about collecting wheelchairs and other mobility accessories for the international nonprofit, Joni & Friends, and are committed to the collection and distribution of God’s word through the Gideons.
If you do not know the Fords, you should!
