I remember the old Nash Rambler, playing pool in the basement, and hiking what seemed like the entire width of Indiana (but was really just the Ten O'clock Line trail in Brown County). I remember when I was chided for various acts of mischief, and I remember being encouraged to be a leader. Thank you Ned - you made an impact, not just on me but in the lives of many young men.

I was truly saddened to hear about Ned passing away. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Baker family. I was best friends with Ned's sone Aaron in high school. I used to stay overnight at their home quite a bit. Ned and Bev were like second parents to me. I truly love them both. My Dad traveled a lot when I was in high school and Ned was a father figure to me. He was also very generous.

What a great man! Many years ago, he reached out and took me in and taught me about automotive mechanics! I showed up at his house with welder's gloves so I could keep my hands clean, and he laughed so hard, and tried not to show how truly stupid I was!! He spent time explaining and showing me about cars and the mechanics about them. He was way more patient than I have ever been when working with someone!! I
