Lasting Memories

Ward Davison Belding
March 15, 1941-June 27, 2018
Walnut Creek, California

Ward D. Belding, Jr., beloved husband of Patricia M. Belding, devoted father of Susannah and Eileen Belding, dear brother of Richard (Sharon) Belding, and loving uncle of Andrew and Mariana Belding, passed away peacefully in Walnut Creek, CA, on June 27.  A son of the late Ward D. Belding Sr. and Helen Elizabeth Belding, Ward was raised in South Pasadena, graduated from Pomona College and Syracuse University, and was a long time Pleasanton resident. He had a long career as a planner and manager for BART. Ward had many interests that he loved and pursued with energy, but even more important to him was sharing those interests with friends and colleagues throughout his life...from college, from BART, from the many choral organizations with which he sang, from the hiking fraternity, and from his community.  He enjoyed meeting new people, cherished relationships with long-time friends, and valued the memories of shared adventures.  He was a generous spirit and friend to many.
