Ned Robert Nerdin

March 24, 1950 - March 5, 2019

In Loving Memory

My Uncle Ned, as a kid I had the great memories of him coming and visiting. While he was in Korea, he bought me a cute little smokers robe. I still have it. I was the coolest kid and I loved it. Then he moved down the street from my Jr High. I would stop by and say hello once in a while. He always played in one band or another and it seamed he always had guitars. When I was about 12 on a deer hunt, he shot a nice little spike. He made a necklace out of the deer horn and gave it to me. I wore it till it would not fit around my neck. I still have that necklace. I would see him in his red Mazda running around Midvale and I would chase him down to say hello. He will be missed. Colleen I am sorry for you loss, He will be missed. Cameron Nerdin

We will miss Ned's happy face in the neighborhood. He was always so friendly. He lived a good life and had lots of fun with his family and friends. He served alot of people with his ministry and caring for the Elders in Airzona. So sad for the loved ones he's left behind. Hoping you will find peace in his memories. Love to Colleen and Family, Teresa and Vann Larson

I was saddened to hear that such a dedicated music man has passed away. Not only him, but his precious brother Jerry has gone ahead. Having been part of the Nerdin family for so many years, it's sad to see so many now gone and receiving him in the next station of life. I send my love and most sincere condolences to Colleen and the entire, extended family. Ned will be missed by many, but I am sure that he is now an earthly emissary as "a dreamer of dreams, singer of songs, lover of love. " Rest well, Ned. Molly

I met Ned at my friend Clark Phelps Antiques Warehouse, that day he swore on Clark’s famous stack of Bibles. We talked for a while then we became friends of Facebook. I will miss him. My thoughts are with his family at this time.

I was mentored on guitar for 50 + yrs with Ned. He was 2 years older in high school than me. He was my big brother. We played guitar together through the years. He was always so generous with his praise. He was and is my sensai in music and life. Ned loves us ALL. He is the light in this world. The light of the world is a little dimmer without his presence. I miss his smile. I miss his passion playing the blues. ❤️

You brought unbridled joy to so many and I loved playing music with you for close to 50 years. You are already missed my dear friend. Now you are off to The Planet of Light.
