I have known you for a while but really got to know you more last summer. I will truly miss talking and working with you. You taught me so much in such a short period of time. God works in mysterious ways. I will carry you in my heart for the rest of my days. I love you Ned...until we meet again.

Ned, it was my privilege and honor to have known you since I was a teenager, and to have worked for you as one of your deputies. You taught us to see the good in people - even the ‘hoofties’. Your enthusiasm for each day was unmatched by anyone, and that was obvious to everyone lucky enough to have known you. Point at any tree, flower, or weed, and you knew what it was, where it came from, and what it could be used for. You were one of the first to push for otter re-introduction in Pennsylvania and you were the key for allowing the use of cable restraints for the trappers of our state. And we are all forever grateful. You are my teacher, mentor, and friend. And the best woodsman I’ll ever know.

So sorry to hear about Ned's passing. He will be missed here but I'm sure he is tramping the woods of heaven marveling at the abundance that the Lord provides to all those who believe in him. See you there Ned.

Not sure what to say. “Sad” is simply inadequate.
It’s more like I’ve lost an extremely important piece of my past. Very important.
Ned, I promise you this. I will think of you virtually every time I’m in some wild place. Think of how wonderful wild places and wild things are. Think of what my life would be like if it weren’t for Ned Weston, over 60 years ago.
And, like you, I will be grateful for such times. You used to say when we were floating in Alaska, “Put this in your memory banks. You’ll probably not get to see it again.”
I take that advice these days.

Ned was a very special person. He was the most sweetest man ever. He never had a mean word to say about anyone. He always has had a smile even being sick. Our shows will not be the same without him.
