Ned LeDoux’s 2-Year-Old Daughter Dies Due to Choking Accident
Singer-songwriter Ned LeDoux's 2-year-old daughter, Haven, has died due to a choking accident at the family home, according to a press statement and a post on LeDoux's Facebook account.
"Paramedics were called to the family’s northeast Kansas home on October 20th and arrived quickly, but attempts to resuscitate her were unsuccessful," the statement reads.
"It is with great sadness that Ned & Morgan inform friends and fans that their two year old daughter Haven passed away on October 20th due to a tragic choking accident in the home," the post continues. "The LeDoux family appreciates your love and support and is requesting privacy at this time."
Haven turned two last month.
LeDoux is the son of champion rodeo great and country singer Chris LeDoux, who was famously name-checked in Garth Brooks' "Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old)" and "Good Ride Cowboy," the latter of which Brooks recorded as a tribute upon his death in 2005.
Ned has been married to his wife, Morgan, for 11 years. He began playing drums with his father’s band, Western Underground, in 1998, and started working as a solo artist in 2015. He released his debut EP, Forever a Cowboy, in 2016; followed by a full-length album, Sagebrush, in 2017.
