LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The family of the late J.D. Olford, who died suddenly Saturday, has released his funeral arrangements.

His service will be held this coming Saturday, June 6th, at Harmony Hill Baptist Church, 2706 S. Chestnut St., Lufkin.

Olford is the founder of Master Olfrod's American Taekwondo Academy in Lufkin.  His family said he had been dealing with chronic pain for the last six months.  But two weeks ago, he was hospitalized for a foot infection.  His death on Saturday was unexpected.

Olford is survived by his wife Annie--they were to celebrate 40 years of marriage this month--and three children: Jason, Shannon and Ashley--all live in the Dallas metropolitan area.

J.D. Olford was 63.
