October 26, 1984 — June 3, 2023

Joe Willie Ford Jr. “JJ” was a loving son, brother, father, and friend to everyone he came in contact with and will be truly missed by all.

Joe Willie Ford Jr’s life on this earth started October 26, 1984. He was born to a wonderful woman named Lula Marie Fair, who loved her son deeply, nurtured Joe and cared for Joe for 38 years, and will continue to love him until God calls her home. His biological father’s name is Joe Willie Ford Sr and his step-father is Lauren E. Jones Jr. Joe is one of eight he has four sisters and three brothers, one of his sisters passed away at the age of 18 and one of his younger brothers passed away at the age of 21 who he is now in Heaven with.

Joe grew up in Wyandotte County with his family. He attended Summoner High School freshman and sophomore year. Joe was an A student and was offered the opportunity to graduate early. He declined the offer, because he wanted to continue to play sports and graduate with his peers. Joe was a bright and talented young man. With a promising future ahead of him. Joe shortly attended JC Harmon in his junior year where he continued to work hard in school and carry out with his sports. Close to the end of his junior year the family relocated and Joe went to Washington High School where he finished up the remainder of high school and graduated in 2003.

Growing up Joe was always a very confident, driven, smart and funny young man. He was a total package some would say, tall handsome a very hard worker and knew what he wanted out of life. See Joe was a king of many talents he was not only smart he was very athletic. He played basketball, ran track, and wrestled. As he grew Joe did some modeling, commercials, and also rapped. He was very good at almost everything he set out to do. So much talent wrapped up in one young man was so amazing and a blessing from God. At the end of his junior year Joe Ford met his high school sweetheart, Tyesha Spencer. Joe and Tyesha met through a close family member of Joe’s. The two started dating and they became inseparable. When he first told the family about Tyesha, Joe had the biggest Kool-Aid grin on his young face. How beautiful she was and one day she would be his wife. Not knowing what the future would hold for the young sweethearts, but they were all in for whatever God blessed to come their way. Joe proposed to Tyesha her senior year, and the two continued dating.

On January 3, 2005 Joe became a father “yes” Tyesha gave birth to identical twin girls who they named Mekilla and Miracle Ford. Life had more to give to the young couple, On February 1, 2006 Tyesha gave birth to another beautiful baby girl they named Nevaeh Ford. Joe was such a proud father who loved his family very much.

Joe Willie Ford Jr. leaves behind his mother Lula Fair, his three daughters; Mekilla, Miracle, and Nevaeh Ford, three sisters and two brothers, 14 nephews a niece, a great nephew, and a host of cousins who loved him and looked at him as more of a brother than cousin.

Joe impacted all our lives and will forever be in our hearts.
