Belford was employed at Dorr Furniture Company for 33 years until they went out of business. He was then employed with Owens & Minors and worked there until his retirement 3 weeks ago. His telephone and door were always open to previous customers that he served over the past years. Whenever anyone needed work done on a refrigerator or stove they would call Belford.

In 1951, Belford and Lydia moved to his present home on Bowentown Road. One of his many hobbies was going camping, working on crafts in his basement and decorating his home for the holidays. The seniors enjoyed looking at his decorations and he enjoyed putting them up. He was very articulate with his yard.
Belford enjoyed teasing every child that was born into our family. Whether it was a grandchild or a niece or nephew they received the grand treatment from him. It could be scaring them, rubbing their heads, locking them in a closet it didn't matter. They knew him as the "Teaser." What came into his life at a time when he needed her the most was his granddaughter Tosh. She was his shadow. No one ever saw him in the yard without his shadow, Tosh, and he enjoyed every minute of it. Now his latest victim was his great-grandson, Brandon. He was too young to understand but Grandpop still enjoyed teasing him. Each one of us knew him as Bel, Belford, Dad, Pop-Pop, Grandpop or Uncle Bel and his memory will always play an important part in each ones life.
