Scott and the late Tyler Sue Russell. Neal was employed by Yager Materials where he was a truck driver and union steward for 21 years, and where he was formerly a scale man. He was a member of St. Williams Catholic Church. Neal was a devoted husband, father, brother, and son. He was an active Catholic and was all about giving to the poor and feeding the hungry. He was an avid gardener, hunter, fisherman, and an excellent cook. Neal was always feeding people. He took fresh vegetables to the homeless shelters and anyone who wanted them. He had fish fry’s from his catch. He kept up with politics because he cared about what was going on in his country. He was a wonderful papa to Gracie.
