Tommy Ford, the famous actor, known for his appearance on "Martin," was featured in an interview with Angella Banks of Xcellence Community Magazine back in 2015.
TMZ released an audiotape of the interview and you we can hear the actor talking about life and death shortly before his passing. Reflecting on his life and legacy, the actor said:
"I got more years behind me than I have ahead of me... Half of my life is over and I'm OK with that. More than half of my life is over. How many black men do you know live to 102 years? Half of my life is over, and I'm OK with that.”
"It's not about how much I got left. It's how much I accomplished while I was here."
