Brian Orville Ward, 63, of Northwood, ND passed away Saturday, October 10, 2020 at his home in Northwood. A private family service will be held.
Much loved husband, father, grandfather, brother, and chef. He is lovingly remembered and survived by his wife of thirty-two years, Kathy; daughters, Erin Wood and Aileen O’Dell; two sisters, Rochelle and Bonnie; and one brother Dallas. He was pop-pop to his grandchildren Jonathan and Chloe of Tucson, AZ. There are numerous additional family members who loved Brian.
Brian’s greatest joy and passion was feeding people as a professional chef and through restaurant management. Most recently and up to his death, Brian was civilian head chef at J.L. Rockers All Ranks Club at the Grand Forks Air Force Base.
Brian loved his girls, feeding people, family pets, motorcycles, camping, and metal music. He and Kathy thoroughly enjoyed many years of their involvement and membership in the Society for Creative Anachronism and Scandinavian heritage. He will be sorely missed.
