Ford McCuistion was born in Tennessee to Ford P. McCuistion, Sr and Nelle Copper McCuistion. Ford retired from the TVA’s Bellefonte Nuclear Power plant where he worked as a blacksmith. Ford was a Jack-of-All-Trades and a Master of Many. He was a thinker, planner, designer, landscaper, builder, and fabricator. From his home to his water features, if he could think of it, he could plan and build it. If he needed it but did not have it, he would make it. Ford also enjoyed restoring old tractors, trucks and engines Above all, Ford loved his family and liked nothing more than having them all get together for cookouts and gathering around a fire roasting marshmallows. He was bigger than life with an even bigger heart. Generosity was a significant part of his character. If you needed something Ford would make sure you got it. He will be sorely missed by his family and all who knew him.
