Neil was amazing. I have shared many memories at his house with my child hood friend, Emily. I felt so much love from him and his wife every single time I was there to play or staying the night. They were like another set of parents to me. Heaven has truly gained an angel.

Neil was a truly good friend to me. As golfing buddies we shared many laughs and many great memories. He will truly be missed. God rest his soul.

My parents started with Neil at American Family Insurance many, many years ago. When I got married in 1974 my husband and I had Neil as our agent too. Nicest man I’ve ever met! My mother would look forward to a new desk calendar from Neil every year. Sometimes she would even go to his office at 65th & Keystone to pick it up. If she couldn’t get there he would bring it to her!
RIP Neil Prayers to the family
Love, Becky Eiermann (Clymer)
