I've known "Ford" for the last 50+ years. Through that time the one thing I remember most is he loved band, he was a "band director". When we would visit, some years after retirement, he would tell me how much he missed working with those band kids. He was a very good director and will be missed. It was a privilege and a honor to have known and worked with him. Jeff W.Holloway Ret. H.S. band director

Mrs. Alford and family, I am sorry for your loss. You and the family are in our prayers. Mr. Alford was a wonderful band director and church music director. We sang in the choir together at Delhi First Baptist. I was in the band in high school and we had some great times. Rita Gale Upton Taunton Delhi High School.

Mr. Alford was a mean old cuss. He taught me how to play the trumpet when I was in 6th grade. As I grew up, I realized that he wasn't so mean. He was a very good disciplinarian and he demanded order and respect. It worked. I turned into a pretty good trumpeter. I owe a lot to him. Thank you for the lifelong memories and lessons you left me with. Goodbye Mr. Alford.

Mr. Alford was the band director during my high school days in Delhi. Although I was not in the band, I knew and respected him very much. He was a great band director, as well as a wonderful role model for all the DHS students. He was loved and admired by students and faculty. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time. We are praying for peace and comfort in the days ahead. Jane McKibbens Jones Class of '63
