He was an active member of the University Heights Methodist Church where he volunteered with the church’s Men’s Club and was always willing to lend a helping hand.

Mr. Lord was also an avid fan of The Gaither’s Vocal Band and Gospel music. He enjoyed telling stories about his family, adventures with cousins, and the past. Mr. Lord was preceded in death by his wife, Elnora Wood Lord; brothers, Pittman and Donald; and sister, Velma Lord Bennett. He is survived by his daughter, Cindy Osborne Merchant; son, Barry Lord; and four granddaughters. A funeral service for Mr. Lord will be held Sunday, July 21, 2019 at 3:00 PM in the chapel of A.S.
