My husband Eric and I knew Neil for 11 years. When I first transferred to Vegas to manage the community, we knew no one. In a strange city with bright lights and cold shoulders, Mr. Neil took us under his wing and never let us go. We spent many a happy Sunday with him and Dot for Pizza Hut Sundays. When his beloved Dorothy passed, the order of things shifted...and Eric and I took Mr. Neil under our wings. What an honor, to have been a part of this tremendous mans life, and be able to have him share in ours. We love you Mr. Neil, and we will never forget you. RIP knowing we will care for your beloved Black Boy until he takes his last breath. He misses you, as we do.

I remember my Mom & Dad (Wendell & Stella Evers) having fun trips with Neil & Dorothy around the Las Vegas area. Neil & Dorothy were also at my wedding in a chapel in Las Vegas February 12, 1980. Very fond memories. With love & hugs to Donna & family. Pat & Tom Roscoe.

I have so many wonderful memories of PawPaw. He took me to Disneyland for my 12th birthday. I got to see so many Vegas shows. He will be missed but, I celebrate his life. Now he is in eternal life together with MawMaw. Thank you Jesus for blessing our life with such a wonderful man.
