Remembering Wendell Ford: Celebrating 90th birthday in Owensboro (2014)

Wendell Ford celebrated his 90th birthday at the Owensboro Museum of Science and History in September 2014.

There was a special celebration during the opening of a new exhibit that focuses on his career.

He talked about the drawbacks of getting older, but still sharp as a tack in his 90th year.

"I'm 90," he said. "I try to do some things that I'm not quite as good as I used to be at least physically. Mentally, I still have all my faculties I think."

In his later years, Ford spent time campaigning for candidates in Kentucky, including an event in Owensboro for now Gov. Steve Beshear, who was running in 2007.
