A blues great and a great man has passed… JAMES "T-MODEL" FORD... R.I.P.
     The self-proclaimed "Ladies Man" and "Taledragger" passed away after a long illness at home in Greenville, Mississippi, on Tuesday, July 16, 2013, surrounding by his loving wife and family. Funeral arrangements are below. Btw, the family wants to clear up any questions about T-Model's actual birth year. They say his birth certificate lists 1921. (T just celebrated his birthday last month with a big blues yard party, by the way.).
     Because T-Model hadn’t been able to play music for about a year, the family is asking for donations, please consider donating towards the funeral expenses using the bank information below (per his widow, Miss Estella Ford).
     T-Model Ford held a special place for his many friends, fans and family. He was a one-of-a-kind blues character, and anyone who ever met him has some amazing and/or ridiculous tale to tell. Thank you T for everything. You made this world a much richer place, and I will always treasure the times you allowed me to hang with you at home and on the road. This marks the end of an era in Mississippi blues. Hey T, please go easy on the house band upstairs… as you (as you once declared) play "in the key of my woman left me." R.I.P. and here's to you… It is now and forever "Jack Daniels Time!"


VISITATION is Friday, July 26 at Redmond Funeral Home located at 442 N. Broadway, Greenville, MS 38701 (662-335-8116) from 1:00 - 3:00 PM.


FUNDRAISER for the funeral will be held at T-Model's house at 216 N Delta, Greenville, MS 38703, starting at 3:30 PM.


FUNERAL services for James Lewis Carter "T-Model" Ford will be held at the Washington County Convention Center at 1040 S Raceway Rd Greenville, MS 38703 (662-332-0488), Saturday July 27 starting at 11:00 AM with a repast for the family following.
