Lynn Ford

August 28, 1959 — August 26, 2020

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.
