That is very rude to lie about that he used pork. That was my grandfather and he stopped selling them over there because he got to old and sick. You lie about a wonderful Christian man who just passed away. Shame on you.

It was my father, Billy Joe Ford who sold Hot Tamales on Ward Ave for years and years, and they also did not stop him for unsafe conditions either. For those of you who do not know, he stopped coming to C-ville because he was getting old and it was hard on him to stay crouched down in his van for most the day and carry all the heavy pots and such. He truly loved all of his Caruthersville customers and he really hated it when he had to make the hard decision to stop coming over there. He passed away on December 29th, this pass year, he was truly the best man I ever knew and I am extremely proud to have called him Dad!!!!!
Sorry

Sorry to both of you(his family) for your loss. I am also so very sorry that people in this world will make things up because they don't know the real answers,& print it to be the truth. I remember Mr. Ford coming to Caruthersville when I was kid, again so sorry for your loss.

Hot tamales were almost always a weekend treat at
our house. That truck at Ward and 3rd was as much
a part our lives as was the old Knox's Drive Inn
when Denver and John owned it.

You can buy Fords Tamales & Chili at Hays in Caruthersville and Hayti (frozen) or you can get them HOT or Frozen at 1802 Independence in Kennett. Harps and Country Mart in Kennett, Country Mart in Piggott, Ar, Harps in Rector, Country Mart in Clarkton and Dexter and Harps in Malden. Both Hays stores in Paragould, and one in Jonesboro, Ar, Kroger in Poplar Bluff and Jonesboro and one Hays in Blytheville. The only place to buy the cooked is at 1802 Independence just North of Glen Sain.
