Ive known Ward for over 20 years and the one thing I will always remember about him is his great smile., not to mention how great he danced. I really believe when he met Cheryl, he lived by a quote that I think we should all live by,' Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift.' Cheryl, I hope you know how our prayeers and thoughts are with you and your family at this time of heartbreak. He's in no more pain and he is with you and all of us. John has lost a dear friend and you have lost the love of your life.We are with you . Rest in peace dear friend, Gwynn=Frazier Redding

Ward added a special playful spark to the Fort Worth Stock Show. His cowboy friendliness always made both guests and co-workers welcome. I was lucky to have worked with him there.
He will be missed.

We are sorry to hear of the passing of Ward we worked together at the Fort Worth Stock show for over 12 years plus ! We had lots of laughs and fun times he had a great smile and was such a great friend to David and I. We looked forward to seeing him each year although the last two he wasn't able to be with us. We prayed for his healing but God had a better plan. We will miss him and pray the family will remember all the good times. Our hearts are sadden for the family but we will see him again one day. RIP dear friend!
