Gentle is a perfect word to describe Ned.
He was kind and gentle and caring.
I recall seeing him smoke a pipe.
I knew him through his late mother and step father. My life was better for knowing Ned.

We are so sorry to hear this. We always sat by him in the balcony during service and always enjoyed hearing him sing. He will be missed.

Ned was kind and straight-forward. A good man.

Ned and I always had a smile for one another. We go way back to the time his mom was alive and he was singing in Chancel Choir. I will miss his gentle nature.

One of my fondest memories of Ned was the way he reveled in every flowering shrub or tree we passed on the way to church in the spring.

Ned was an inspiring soul and a wonderful uncle. He lived every day with the utmost conviction and uncompromising faith. He cared for others above all else and truly wished nothing but the greatest joy for all. My memory of him always starts with the way he signed every letter he sent me - Work Hard, Play Hard, Study Hard - Love, Your Uncle Ned.

Miss you and love you, Uncle Ned.

We always had so much fun together as kids! I will miss our visits. You always had a beautiful smile and gave the best hugs❤️
Rest In Peace, cousin.

When Hal, Gib, Lou and I were helping with the grounds at West Side, Ned would join in from time to time to take on jobs that needed to be done, but no one got around to doing them until Ned tackled them. He truly left this world a better place. Thanks, Ned.
