(September 11, 2016) It is with great sadness that we have to announce the death of our dear friend Roy E. Sword. Roy founded the Falcon Club of America (FCA) in Arkansas in 1979 to band together owners of the Ford Falcon. He once stated that he hoped the club would have forty or fifty members. Nearly forty years and thousands of members later, this club continues to thrive and has fostered countless lasting friendships.
Each of us not only grieves at the passing of a tremendous individual but also for the loss his family suffers. Our hearts and prayers go out to them. He will be sorely missed.
Roy E. Sword, FCA #1 (1943-2016)
Founder’s Award Announced!

“In memory of our founder, Roy E. Sword, a Founder’s Award will be presented at the banquets of future Annual National Meets. This will not be a judged class.
