Sheldon Ford

December 28, 1981 — July 5, 2021


Sheldon Wade Ford, age 39, of Jerome, Idaho passed away July 5, 2021. He was born December 28, 1981 in Burley, Idaho, the handsome son of Ralph Patrick Ford and Laura Ford Vanderstelt. He married Rebecca Ford on August 11, 2018 in Fairfield, Idaho.

This man was so caring, so loving, a total goofball, smart, and witty. He would do anything for his family and friends. He always wanted to be a father, and was so proud when his son, Wade, was born and daughter, Alyssa, came into his life. Anyone who knew Sheldon knew he had an eye for antiques and a green thumb. There’s nothing he couldn’t do.

Those left to cherish his memory include his parents, Ralph Patrick Ford and Laura Ford Vanderstelt; his wife, Rebecca Ford; daughter, Alyssa and son, Wade; brother, Jerry Ford; and many other family and friends.

A Celebration of Sheldon’s Life will be held at 4:00 pm, Saturday, July 17, 2021 at Malad Gorge State Park, 2314 S Ritchie Rd, Hagerman, Idaho 83332, potluck style- bring a side.
