Default Richard D. Hord has died.

With great sadness I'm announcing the passing of Richard D. Hord of Campbellsville, KY. Richard died October 1, 2017. He was only 55 yrs-old.

I don't know the cause of Richard's death but I know the past year had been very hard for Richard. He loved his family and his Thunderbirds, a Diamond Jubilee and a Squarebird. Richard was a great contributor to our site. I will miss Brother Richard, immensely. - Dave

Hello everyone. My name is Brandon Hord, son of Richard Hord. I was laying in bed this morning just thinking about the good times I had with my dad. I then remembered about all his friends on Squarebirds. I just created an account and just read all the comments. I am blown away with all the love and support (THANK YOU). I am currently sitting in a rocking chair made out of old barn lumber, the same wood his casket is made out of. Im not sure what everyone has read in the news about my father. He had a hard time and his marriage was falling apart. Please refrain from judging him from what you read. Before he passed, he did bring a man to Christ / save a man from hanging himself. He also read the entire Bible from cover to cover. His '78 TBird along with the bus he drove will be at the ceremony at the Farm on Saturday where his ashes will be spread. Thank you everyone for the love, support and the Prayers! God bless you all!

I'm very sorry to hear of your loss. One of the great things I have always appreciated about this forum, it's helpful, warm and very friendly. That was the founder's goal, and it seems to staying true to those goals.

So, look to Richard's good times and the help he provided here. I remember him being a great asset to the people online here, and always nice...

Cheers
Bryan
