Ward met Nancey Wadley when they were 12 years old. They were high school sweethearts, and from that moment on, the love of each other’s lives. Ward had a passion for his work and his family, and began Uncommon Market with his brother Don in 1971. He was able to combine his love for his work with the love of his family each and every day. Ward was a creative genius, a true man’s man of astounding talents and a person of vast and wide-ranging experience who could make anything fun. He was a devoted and emotionally connected individual that will leave his legacy through his family, friendships, and works of all descriptions.
