Ned often bragged about his son Doug, and granddaughter, Lauren. He enjoyed seeing Doug sing on stage and Lauren compete in barrel racing at rodeos. He loved dancing with his wife Deanna. He also got great joy from sitting on his porch talking to his neighbors and friends as they walked by or pulled up a chair to visit. He was greatly loved and will be missed by many.
