Although he passed away one year ago, Richard E. Ford’s presence can still be seen throughout the city, with such things as the Dr. James Ford Home, the Charley Creek Gardens, portions of the Honeywell Center and, of course, the Charley Creek Inn.
His contributions to the city will now be remembered for generations to come, as members of the Wabash High School Class of 1956, along with other friends of Ford, commissioned a bust of his likeness to be created by Fort Wayne sculptor Will Clark.
The bust was unveiled Thursday evening, April 30, in the lobby of the Charley Creek Inn.
