Before being elected to the Indiana Senate, Ford served as a prosecuting attorney for Blackford County. He earned his J.D. from Indiana University School of Law - Bloomington.

Ford is survived by his wife of 37 years, Joyce (Bonjour) Ford; a daughter, Kelly (Ford) Konzel of Granger; three sons, Jeff Ford of Chicago, Andrew Ford of Indianapolis, and Matthew Ford of Marion; and two grandchildren.
