Ned graduated from Bear River High School and Utah State University. He also served an LDS Mission to Wisconsin from 1958 – 1960.
Ned served a distinguished 21 year career in the US Air Force as a navigator, primarily in rescue and recovery. He was stationed in Texas, California, Scotland, Spain, Vietnam, Florida, Utah (where he was an instructor and built a navigator simulator to assist in training), New Mexico, and ended his career in Alaska (where he was a rescue coordinator involved in many high profile rescues). During his military career he received several medals and citations, including the Vietnam Service Medal, the Vietnam Service Cross, the Meritorious Service Medal, the Air Force Commendation Medal, the Air Medal and the Distinguished Flying Cross.

Ned was very active in Scouting and was very proud of earning his Wood Badge Beads. He was a very talented carpenter and built two homes, besides the family home, as well as helping to teach carpentry at the OWATC. He also loved the outdoors, particularly fishing in Alaska.
He dearly loved his children and grandchildren and will be deeply missed by all those who knew him.
