Neel was my neighborhood buddy when we were fourteen until I moved away, , and then my chemical engineering classmate through our years at Rice. His home was my home, his family my family, through those years. He taught me how to drive, and taught me what true friendship is. I truly loved him like a brother. Frances, we love you and deeply share your sense of loss.

Neel was a true gentleman. Quite, dignified, and friendly. Obviously, Neel possessed great character and intelligence as demonstrated by achieving Eagle Scout standing in his youth and advanced degrees in engineering as an adult.

He was also a solid churchman and served on the Associate Vestry of St. James Episcopal Church. He was admired by all who knew him.
