Ned died Sept. 18, 2020, in Willow Grove, Pa. He was 84.

He came to Princeton from Ellendale (N.D.) High School, where he participated in baseball, student government, and glee club. 

Ned left Princeton and graduated from the University of North Dakota; he subsequently earned an MBA from Harvard Business School. There he met Bobbie Conger, and they were married in 1962 in Abington, Pa.

Ned was self-employed as a manufacturer’s representative for most of his career. Known for his inspiring tenor, he was often called upon to sing the national anthem to open Abington Memorial Hospital’s June Fete Village Fair. He was active in local theater and was a dedicated member of The Orpheus Club of Philadelphia.

His wife predeceased him. Ned is survived by son Edwin M. III and his wife, Mary Marbach; daughter Carolyn Leiby; and his three grandchildren, Ashlee, Erika, and Ian. The class extends its deepest sympathy to them all.
