    My sincere condolences to Ned’s family. I have not seen Ned for a really long time but have fond memories of our golfing days together at the Frankfort Country Club. Hopefully, Ned and Russ Gearheart can get together for a round at the best golf course in the heavens.

    So sorry to hear of Ned’s passing. I went to school with Ned at FHS, and was his first roommate at Purdue. Had not seen Ned in over 20 years, so sad I did not keep up our friendship. My condolences to the Berry family and those close to Ned.

    My heart goes out to the Berry family I went to school with Ned in grade school and thought he was the bomb, years later we talked about the “mad crush” I had on him probably in the first grade, because for years my parents teased me about Ned Barwee as I pronounced it, he will be sorely missed. You are in my prayers, may God bless and keep you during the difficult time.

    Ned and I had many good times together through the years, he will be missed dearly. He had a gentle spirit about him and was one of the most intelligent people I know.

    Ned was a special friend growing up in Frankfort…we were in Boy Scouts together and became close friends who always enjoyed life. My heart is very heavy with his loss…he was always the brightest of all of us as well as our mentor in many ways. The memories of growing up with Ned, Randy, Bruce, Bob, Dennis and many others are the best. God bless you Ned and peace be with your family.

    To all of Ned’s family, I’m so sorry to hear of his passing. I have known Ned for a long time, he was my neighbor growing up, and I used to play with Jason. Ned was a very good friend of my brother Mike Wells. We all used to go fishing and camping, play poker and I always got cherries out of the tree in his old back yard. He was so fun to hang around with and he will be truly missed. May God be with you all. God Bless… Marty and Carol Cornell and Samantha Taylor

    I am sorry to hear that Ned has passed. I worked with him and his dad on the railroad. I really liked them both. Ned was a good person and will be sorely missed.

    Ned was one of my closest friends, in 1980, I was single and had no one to take me to my senior prom, Ned spoke up..he called me and said “well your not going alone”. He was working on the railroad. Said he was gonna be back that day. He was late..but we made it. I will never forget him. One of the most kindest man I have ever known. We had plenty of parties before and after that, one being my graduation. Throughout the years we ran into each other..always smiles and hello’s. I will always miss my dear friend, RIP Ned Berry..always know you were loved by everyone! p.s. Street’s of gold..also Golf courses my friend…
