John Acord

JohnAcord onlineJohn Thomas Acord “JT” passed away in his sleep on Sunday, October 18, 2020 at the age of 66. He is survived by his parents - John and Charlene Acord, his brother - Douglas Acord, his daughter and son-in-law - Jessica and John Hofmann, and his grandson - John Cody Hofmann - and a freezer full of food!

JT led an incredible life - he was a talented chef, loved building and fixing things with his own hands, and driving as fast as he could without getting caught (pretty sure his blood was more ethanol than plasma). He had a big heart and always enjoyed helping others. His family and friends meant everything to him.

Following his wishes, there will not be a memorial service (he would rather you celebrate than morn). The family will spread his ashes in a private ceremony.

Dad, we miss you, but glad you’re resting peacefully now.  We love you so much!
