Williamsburg, Ind. – Jerry “J.D.” Radford, age 54, of Williamsburg, Indiana, left us Saturday, June 5, 2021. J.D. was born on July 30, 1966, in Richmond, Indiana, to Jerry L. and Darlene Thornburg Radford. He graduated from Northeastern High School. From the age of seven, J.D. knew that all he wanted to do was be a farmer. His grandparents, Bus and Lydia Radford, raised him on the farm and formed him into the wonderful man he became. J.D. loved spending time on the farm and spent his life building Radford Farms and making it into the success it is today. He had a zest for life. J.D. never met a stranger and charmed everyone he met. J.D. was a humble man, who loved his wife, land, family, and friends. He wasn’t much for making a fuss; he was just a simple, easygoing, wonderful man, who loved the simple things in life. Survivors include his loving wife of 18 years, Dory Darnell Radford, who he’d been with for 35 years; father, Jerry (Sue) Radford of Williamsburg; mother, Darlene Frame (Paul) of Richmond, Indiana; sister, Gina (John) Charles and their sons, William and Jack, of Mapleton, Georgia; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Gayle and Doris Darnell of Noblesville, Indiana; nephew, Cameron Darnell of Centerville, Indiana; aunts; uncles; cousins; and many close friends, including his beloved furry companions, Harley and Cash, who went everywhere with him. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Howard “Bus” and Lydia Radford and Creed and Kathleen Thornburg; brother-in-law, Vincent Cory Darnell; aunts; uncles; cousins; and many friends. A service for Jerry “J.D.” Radford will be held at First Baptist Church in Richmond. A Celebration of Life for all of J.D.’s family and friends to gather and share great memories is being planned and will be announced soon. Arrangements are being handled by Doan & Mills Funeral Home, 790 National Road West, Richmond. Condolences may be sent to the family via the guest book at www.doanmillsfuneralhome.com.
