Neal had been battling stage IV Colon Cancer for the last 2 years. After 3 excruciating surgeries, he was finally able to start enjoying life again. Neal deeply loved his family and friends. He enjoyed hanging out in the garage, watching his favorite football team “The Patriots” as well as cooking out on the grill, listening to music and making people laugh. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
