    John Ford of SARN

    It is with a heavy heart that I received this sad news of the passing of a dear friend to all of us in this hobby of slot car racing, John Ford.
    John was the long time publisher of Scale Auto Racing News slot car magazine, as well as a former track builder and raceway owner... and a true icon of the slot car racing hobby / sport.

    I received this email from Linda Ford:

    "I am sorry to inform you that John Ford passed away yesterday at 3:00 pm. He had been in the hospital for three weeks and after failed attempts at dialisysis due to his heart condition he left this life. He will be missed.
    Sincerely, Linda Ford"

    My heart goes out to Linda Ford, and their family and friends...
    as well as all of us who knew John in the slot car racing community all over the world.
