My thoughts go out to his family and the great friends that he shared his unwavering passion for Red Slough and its avian inhabitants with. He was a wonderful fellow and I am blessed to have had the opportunity to see the Slough through his eyes. He will be greatly missed and I am sad for the future birders who will not experience his kindness and keen understanding of the natural world.
Thank you David for sharing the information.

Subject: [OKBIRDS] Passing of Ford Hendershot
Ford Hendershot passed away last Wednesday night in his sleep. He was diagnosed with stage 4 Pancreatic cancer about three weeks earlier. Ford was a forest service volunteer who helped give tours at Red Slough. Many of you know Ford from going on his tours. Ford was also an avid ebirder. His Celebration of Life will be tomorrow (Monday) at 2:00 p.m. in Idabel at the United Methodist Church.
