He was born on April 5, 1956 in Delaware, the son of the late Merle and Joan (McCumber) Askins and he attended Delaware Hayes High School.
Neal worked as a handyman of sorts for anyone and everyone. He was always good with his hands and painting seemed to be his skill he was sought out for. He enjoyed playing and watching golf, watching Ohio State Buckeyes football, attending Jug day every year, and socializing with friends over a cold one. Above all he enjoyed visits with his daughter and grandchildren.
He is survived by his daughter, Dezirae (Ben) Wilcox of Wooster; 3 grandchildren; 2 brothers, Jeff (Lauretta) and Britt; 3 nieces, 4 nephews, several great nieces, great nephews and a host of friends.
In addition to his parents, Neal was preceded in death by his brother Kim Askins and his sister Colleen Whitacre.
The family wishes to thank the many doctors, nurses, Hospice, and Lauretta Askins for their compassionate care for the last few months.
There will be no services at this time. A Celebration of Life will take place at a later date.
The Snyder-Rodman Funeral Center of Delaware is assisting the family.
