  • My heart felt condolences to all of the family. Neal was a great guy. But, then I am sure you know that. I am proud to say he was my friend. He is in true peace

  • My deepest condolences to Neal’s family. I spent 43 years working with Neal and it was my privilege to have known him. He excelled at whatever he did and with precision and pride. Again, my prayers and condolences to the family.

  • I am very saddened. I worked with Neal for 20 years. He stood strongly by what he knew about you, instead of what he heard about you. Many should learn from this. Neal always treated me with respect and dignity as I was a crane operator. His knowledge was extremely impressive. His integrity as a man in the workplace is undeniably impeccable. I wish his family peace and well being knowing that Neal, in fact, is doing the same. God Bless!

  • I worked with Neal for bout 9 years, he like everyone else would aggravate me at work always a good time. I would always see him running his machine, and stop to chat a little before the bosses could find me. Rest in peace Neal it was a pleasure God bless you and your family!!

  • I had the pleasure of working with Neal for 9 years at Ideal. Talking to him would gaurrentee you went back to work with a smile. He was always in a good mood and ready to aggravate anyone who stopped at his machine. It saddens me to hear of his passing. Condolences to his family ,may you find peace in this time of pain.

  • We are sorry to hear of Neal’s passing . He was in our welding program at Madison Adult Career Center. We nominated him for student of the year, and he was such a delight. I’m happy to have known Neal even for a short time. He always seamed to be smiling.
