Ned Dubofsky, a Great Neck North graduate and insurance company executive, died last week at 54.

It is unknown the exact date and manner of his death.

Dubofsky graduated from Great Neck North High School in 1987, afterward attending and graduating from George Washington University. He was a lifelong member of Camp Winaukee.

He was vice president of business development for NFP, whose holdings include BWD Sports and Entertainment, a company serving sports leagues, owners and players.

Dubofsky’s funeral was held at Temple Beth Shalom in Roslyn on Feb. 12, a place in which the family celebrated their happy and sad moments.

“Ned was my life,” his wife Lindsay said at the funeral. ”He was the funniest, craziest, most obsessive, determined, magnetic but sensitive and thoughtful person that I knew. Ned had such a huge, magical presence, people gravitated to him naturally.”

Lindsay said in her eulogy that Ned’s love for her and their two daughters always came first.

With a full temple in attendance at Ned’s funeral, Rabbi Paul Resnick said that he hopes the community continues their support of his family.

“My first prayer for the family is that this support, this comfort, this love that is here in this room, stays with the family tomorrow, next week, next month and for eternity, as this family will remember Ned every day of their lives,” Rabbi Resnick said at his funeral.

Ned is survived by his wife Lindsay Dubofsky and their daughters Casey and Charlie.
