Michael was known by everyone who knew him, or met him to have such a gentle, loving, genuine, caring and soft-hearted soul, who loved life and loved hard. There was never a person that he met throughout his life that didn’t immediately know he was a man of great character.

Michael was the President and Owner of Accurate Painting Services LTD, since 2006. He studied construction at Columbus State Community College, and he graduated from Walnut Ridge High School.

Michael was a member, Assistant President of the Board of Elite and Trustees, Men’s Group leader and a worship leader at Jehovah Rapha Outreach Church (“JROC”). He was one of the original members to help start the church in 2001. His praise will be continually echoed in the JROC sanctuary and throughout the memories of all of the members.

Michael was preceded in death by his father, Pastor George M. Ford; stepfather, Robert Zellner, Jr.; mother-in-law, Carmen N. Rodriguez; grandparents, Betty Lee Bell and George Ford (fraternal), Fontaine and Annie Allen (paternal); step sibling, Larry Justice.

Michael’s compassion and charisma were felt by anyone he came in contact with and he was always immediately loved by even stranger’s that met him. His love for The Ohio State University Buckeyes football and singing karaoke was two of his most compassionate things he enjoyed. He had a special gift of making people laugh and bringing out the best in them. He lived life to the fullest and touched many in a special way. We are going to miss him dearly and will cherish his love, laughter, and joy. We love you, Michael!
