Neal was an outgoing gentleman. He enjoyed riding his bike all over. He loved listening to music, with country being his favorite genre. Neal was an avid Nascar, and Minnesota Vikings fan, rarely missing watching a game or race on television. He was a wonderful cook, incorporating just the right spices to use in his entrees. Neal’s smile, and sense of adventure is greatly missed by his family and friends.
