Andrew Ford

September 16, 1958 — November 24, 2023


MSgt Andrew P Ford was born on September 16th, 1958 in Encino Ca.

After graduating from Coachella Valley High School, he proudly enlisted in the United States Marine Corp where he served his country with great honor for 22 years. His achievements, awards and commendations are a true testament to his strength of character and great acts of selflessness.

Those who were privileged enough to have met or encountered Andy were impacted in some way, great or small.

Andy passed peacefully on November 24th, 2023 surrounded in love and presence of family.

Andy is predeceased by and reunited with his mom Kay.

Andy is survived by his loving wife of 44 years, Annette, whom he loved and adored with every bit of his being.  His son, Andy Junior, whose unending humor and courage to persevere gave him solace.  His daughter Trish, whom he instilled in- great strength and her husband Joey, humbled by Andy's measure. Along with his grandchildren Hannah and Zachary of whose accomplishments he was so very proud! And his beloved best friend- Barkley.

Andy will forever be missed and memories with him forever cherished.
