Obituary of Ned Dennis Neenan

Ned Dennis Neenan, 87, of Haines city, Florida, passed away Friday, December 31, 2021 from injuries sustained in an automobile accident. He was a 1952 graduate of Spencer High School, in Ohio, where he played football, baseball and basketball. His life was spent loving his family, enjoying his friends, coaching youth, fishing, hunting and golfing. He loved the outdoors and many family vacations were spent traveling to different corners of the states camping along the way. He was a printer by trade his entire career. Surviving Ned, his wife Evalyn of 67 years; children Cindy Waggoner of Portland, Oregon, Mark (Melodi) Neenan of St. Cloud, Florida, Dean (Kathy) Neenan of Jacksonville, Florida; Grandchildren, Kyle Neenan, Kaleb Neenan, Evan Leigh Mae Lemke, Joshua Neenan, Amy Podvin; Great grandchildren, Blaine Neenan, Tanner Neenan, Cillian Lemke, Brody Neenan, Jackson Neenan, Lena Podvin and Gianna Podvin; sisters, Noreen Smith and Sally Wharton. Ned and Evalyn spent the early years of marriage in Jefferson Ohio where they raised all 3 children through high school. He was actively involved in coaching the youth of the area and touched many lives with his dedication to making a difference. After the children were grown, they packed up and traveled, as they always wanted and eventually landed in Rustin, Louisiana. It was a university town where he enjoyed attending many of the collegiate athletic events while also working at the campus printing department. When it came time to retire they gravitated to sunny Florida, and resided in Sweetwater community located on a lake with 18 hole golf course where Ned discovered he not only enjoyed golf, he was good at it....even scoring two holes-in-one on a single day. Something he was very proud of. But his greatest love of all was his wife Evalyn. He was a devoted husband. His last words were 'Tell my wife I love her.'
