Sadly - Our dear Ned passed away peacefully last night. Ned was alert, communicative, engaged, funny, and totally at peace.  He hugged and kissed everyone and said his goodbyes. Ned has encouraged all of us to continue his legacy of service to children and young adults in the juvenile justice system. He said he is passing the torch to all of us to continue his work.  Please keep his wife Maria and son Sean in your thoughts and prayers.   

We thank Ned for his extraordinary leadership, guidance and dedication that has helped so many within juvenile justice.  His hard work has advanced the field and helped to make the system better for all youths!  He was an inspiration to all of us and will be deeply missed by all.

Calling hours will be held Thursday, Oct. 20, from 4-8 at Lane Funeral Home, 760 Main St., Winchester. The service will be held Friday, Oct. 21 at 10 am at St. Mary's Church, 158 Washington St., Winchester. In lieu of flowers, Ned requested that donations be made to CJCA, 639 Granite St., Braintree, MA 02814.
