Ned was predeceased by his parents, Frederick "Vernon" and Kathleen (Acton) Thomas; sons, John, George, and Frederick Thomas; daughter, Susan Mott; sister, Joan Thomas.
Ned was an avid sports player and enthusiast. He especially enjoyed hockey and did some coaching in his earlier years. As his family grew he looked forward to spending time on family vacations and camping with his children and grandchildren. He also enjoyed reading in his spare time. Ned will be dearly missed.
There will be no visitation. A memorial service will be held from the J.A. McAdam Memorial Chapel on Thursday, January 10, 2019 at 2:00 pm with Rev. Dr. Kelly Burke officiating.
