Johnny Neal was one of the kindest and most giving people I ever knew. He was always on hand to help with projects, run errands or check up and look after those important people in his life. He loved & took particular care of a large group of family members it seemed, and provided loving care for my aunt as she suffered through dementia. Years ago he lived within a block of my grandmother & my aunt, so I had the opportunity to talk with him often. After I moved away from the Kansas City area and got involved with my own family & work we unfortunately drifted apart. My mom and I communicated with Johnny Neal on occasion, but it didn’t seem often enough. He will be missed.

I knew John growing up in Topeka. Julie and I were good friends through High School. John was always very good to me. He was a loving father to Julie and can only imagine his love for his grandchildren. Always cooking great meals and inviting me to stay for dinner.
I lost touch with John after Julie left town but thought of him through the years. John will be missed, but we all can rest in Gods promise we will all be together again one day in the kingdom of heaven. John has just gone ahead to prepare for our day the Lord calls us home. Julie and Brad my prayers go out to you and the whole family.
God be your comfort.
