The Passing of Henry “Model T” Ford, NFL Alumni Pioneer
The NFL Alumni Northern California Chapter is sad to report that Henry Model T Ford passed away on June 17th at the age of 89 at his home in Palo Alto with his family by his side. Henry was one of the founders of the NFL Building in Redwood City. He started the NFL Caring for Kids Football Clinic in Redwood City. Henry works very hard at all of our golf tournaments making sure everyone got their goodie bags. Henry was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in 1955. He always had a great story to tell us about his playing days and his interracial marriage, a touchy subject in the 1950s. His wife, Rochelle, was always by his side. He has two sons Michael and Mark and two grandchildren Ethan and Paisley. We will all miss that great smile! Rest in peace my friend! Job well done at the NFL alumni!

When he's not serving as Technology Director for the NFL Alumni Northern California Chapter, Mark is the owner of Lone Star Productions - a technology consulting organization, and is also the owner and pitmaster of Love and Smoke, a smoked meats and barbecue catering company.
