Howard Lee Ness, 53, Fargo, ND, died April 4, 2007 after an eleven year courageous battle with cancer.
Howard Lee Ness was born July 7, 1953, one of twin sons born to Tom and Joyce (Skjonsby) Ness. He grew up in Fargo and attended Fargo schools, including NDSU. He joined the Army in November 1975 and in May 1977 took an honorable discharge to raise his two daughters.
