He graduated from Walnut High School with the class of 1963.

To this union two daughters were born: Sandra and Julie. Ward began farming as a young kid with his family. He continued this career throughout his life. He had many hobbies that included: fishing, hunting, trapshooting, camping and taking his family boating to enjoy water activities. There were many summers spent in Canada fishing with his family. In true farmer fashion, he enjoyed the opportunity to show off his restored tractors in many tractor rides and parades. He enjoyed having coffee with his friends and playing cards, especially the rivalry with his good friend, Bob. Ward loved playing and watching sports of all kinds. He was especially proud to watch his children and grandchildren participate in their activities. Most of all, Ward loved spending time with his family.
