After retiring he and Ruth served missions for the LDS church in Fiji, New Zealand, and Florida. In between missions, they moved to Logan to be closer to their family. Ned loved working in his workshop, building things for his family, especially his grandchildren. He was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, where he served in many callings. He had a love for our Savior and serving others.
