Obituary

Frankie “Lynn” Ford, 60, of Robinson, passed away peacefully at his home on August 26, 2020.
Lynn was born on August 28, 1959 in Cleburne, Texas to Frankie Lee and Elaine (Bransom) Ford. He graduated from Granbury High School in 1978 and went on to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Secondary Education from Tarleton State University in 1982 and later earned a Master’s Degree from Sul Ross University.
Athletics were always an important part of Lynn’s life. He played many sports throughout his youth and was a standout football and baseball player at Granbury High School. Since 2009, Granbury High School recognizes its Outstanding Defensive Lineman each season with the “Lynn Ford Award”. Lynn continued his love of athletics by coaching for many years and impacted many young men and women with his infectious love to compete with integrity.
Lynn spent 30 years in public education as a teacher, coach, and administrator. After his retirement, Lynn served as a math teacher for Eagle Christian Academy in Waco. He loved teaching his students and especially showing off his fun “math tricks”.
He married Thresa Ann Curbo of Whitney on March 18,1985. Lynn was a true family man and loved to spend time with his wife of 35 years, his children, grandchildren and extended family. He was extremely proud of his sons and grandchildren and enthusiastically shared their accomplishments.
Family time was very important to Lynn and he treasured time spent with them whether it was playing cards, dominos, fishing, or just being together. He also found pleasure strategizing his many fantasy football teams, and planning which mountain to hike up next.
He is survived by his wife Thresa of Robinson; son, Trent Ford, of Dallas; step sons, Jeremy Boswell and wife Rae, of Colleyville; Justin Boswell, of Austin; parents, Frankie and Elaine Ford, of Granbury; precious grandchildren, Macy, Jarett, and Case Boswell, of Colleyville; sister, Sharon Rains and husband Steve, of Granbury; aunt, Betty Howeth, of Joshua; and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews.
Lynn was a member of Crestview Church of Christ in Waco, Texas. He was blessed with many wonderful friends and family supporting him and giving encouragement throughout his illness. The family would like to thank each person for every act of kindness shown to us during Lynn’s courageous battle with cancer. Your love and concern has been a constant source of strength and has lifted our hearts.
Funeral services will be at 10 am on Monday, August 31, 2020 at the Crestview Church of Christ in Waco, Texas. Visitation will be at Pecan Grove Funeral Home, 3124 Robinson Drive, Waco, on Sunday, August 30, 2020 from 6-8 pm.

Memories of Lynn, one of my best friends. We grew up together in Granbury. Lynn was among the group of friends that would come out and help on our farm; hoeing peanuts, picking cantalopes and watermelons, moving irrigation pipe, hauling hay, and generally having a good time of it all. We were in the Boy Scouts and gave our scout leaders a difficult time. We went to church and church camp and gave the adult leaders a difficult time. We were on the Cardinals Little League Baseball Team, coached by Lynn's father, Frankie. With Frankie coaching us, we won the Granbury League championship 3 years running. I had the privilege of playing next to Lynn on the 1976 Granbury Pirates Football team. He was selected to the All-District team that year. His dedication and level of effort to do the best he possibly could was exemplary to me. I was always envious of Lynn's talent at Math, he was great at being able to solve math problems very fast. Lynn and I shared a dormitory room in 1979-80 in Bender Hall at Tarleton State University. Lots of memories there! I was honored to have Lynn as a groomsman at our wedding. I have many fond memories where Lynn was a part of our fishing, camping trips, hunting quail/dove, and just roaming the countryside in Hood County as we grew up.

My heart is heavy today. I'm so sorry for your loss. I remember when I was young many times going over to see Sharon and Lynn was there. We would always play and be loud and he never got annoyed with us and was always very friendly. God gained another angel and I will forever be grateful to have known him as a friend. God be with all the family in the coming days.

Sharon and extended family.
I have always remembered Lynn from high shool, he was and is one of few that was kind and welcoming to everyone. He always showed respect to others in his class. Because of this I know he was a good and respectful adult throughout life. I can honestly say he was a good one.
