2006: President Ford died in California

leave a comment »


We remember President Ford, who died on this day in 2006.      He died late in the day in California so most of us heard the news the next day.

He was 93 and had been in bad health.    He became president in 1974 after President Nixon resigned.   

This is what Mrs. Ford said of Pres. Ford’s death:

“My family joins me in sharing the difficult news that Gerald R. Ford, our beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather, has passed away at 93 years of age. His was a life filled with love of God, his family, and his country.”
By the way, check the
Pres. Ford Library website for more on his life and funeral updates!

And he was my first vote for President in 1976.
