Ford McFarlane passes away

Ford McFarlane 1940-2017

Ford McFarlane 1940-2017

It is with a heavy heart that we share the news that Ford McFarlane, long time BFCSD and BFCA member, passed away Saturday, May 27, 2017 as the result of complications of gall bladder surgery. He was 77.

Ford was a past President and Board Member of the BFCSD for many years. He tackled the difficult job of Show Chairman for our Specialties as well. Ford and his wife Diana have been BFCSD and BFCA members since the late 1980’s.

The McFarlanes became BFCSD members after meeting club members Barbara Stubbs, Lois Morrow and Linda Rowe at the Silver Bay Kennel Club show. At that time they had one pet store Bichon. It wasn’t long until they had several show dogs that they showed to their conformation titles with Linda Rowe under the Hollyhock prefix. More recently they were involved with Norwich Terriers that they showed under the Haverhill prefix.

If asked to describe Ford all would describe him as a sweet guy who would do anything for his friends and was especially devoted to his wife, Diana. At every BFCSD event Ford could be counted on to not only do his job, but to be available to help others without needing to be asked.

Ford loved his dogs and am certain all who knew him can picture him sitting in “his chair” with a lap full of Bichons. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
