Death of a Classmate - Ned Kellogg, 4th Co.

Edward S. "Ned" Kellogg III, died on September 2, 2013, at the age of 80. He was born on February 13, 1933, the only son of Edward and Dorothy Kellogg of Glendale, California. At the time of his death, he was a resident of Casa de las Campanas in Rancho Bernardo, California. A 1954 graduate of the United States Naval Academy, he served his country with distinction for 30 years, retiring in 1984 with the rank of Captain. His naval career included the commands of USS Narwhal (SSN 671) and USS Fulton (AS 11). He served as Chief of Staff, Submarine Group 5 here in San Diego, Reactor Officer on USS Enterprise (CVAN 65), and Commanding Officer, Naval Station Mare Island. Following retirement, he embarked on his second career in the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego. Reverend Ned was an ordained Episcopal deacon, then priest. As in his career in the Navy, he served the Church with great dedication and enthusiasm. He served parish communities of the Cathedral of St. Paul, downtown San Diego, University City, Poway, Lake Elsinore, Escondido, San Carlos, El Cajon, and Lemon Grove. A longtime member of All Souls Episcopal Church in Point Loma, he was an active leader in both the San Diego and National Episcopal Cursillo. He was also a volunteer Chaplain at Sharp Memorial Hospital for 23 years. Upon his retirement from the ministry, he was pastoral assistant to the Bishop of San Diego. Ned is survived by his wife, Margaret (Wagner) of Los Angeles. Married for 59 years, they made their home in many states: Hawaii, California, Connecticut, New York, Idaho, Virginia, and Washington, DC. They settled in Point Loma in 1984. Ned is survived by three children, Stephen Kellogg (Ann Lindsey) of Burbank, California; Joyce Fischer Baird (Rodger Baird) of Escondido, California; and Carolyn Kellogg Davis (Jim Davis) of Kingwood, Texas. He is also survived by 11 grandchildren: Thomas and Phoebe Kellogg; Stephanie Fischer Wilhite, Jenn Fischer Price, John Fischer, Mark Fischer, Rory and Nathan Baird; Hope, Joy and Drew Davis; and three great-grandchildren. A Celebration of Life in his honor will be held at 11:00 am, Friday, September 27, at St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church, Poway. Military Funeral Honors will precede the service. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that donations may be made to the Diocese of San Diego Bishop's Discretionary Fund; San Diego Episcopal Cursillo; Cure Alzheimer's Fund; or Elizabeth Hospice.
