Mitch is survived by his parents, his wife, his children Noel Neal Davis (Ian) and Nicklaus Minton Neal, and his siblings Thom Neal (Betsy), Bryan Neal (Gay), and Lisa Baker (Mark). Mitch was kind, generous, and a wonderful provider to his friends and family. He loved camping, dancing, and lived life to the fullest.

The family suggests that memorials may be forwarded to Mt. Horeb United Methodist Church in Lexington, SC.

To Thom and all Mitch's family,
Thom I cannot begin to fathom the loss of a sibling. I have fond memories of Mitch when you, Betsy and I were at Baptist College together. I remember you had his little MG on campus at one time (I think your car was in the shop)! At that age, he was pretty cool about it, as I am not sure I would have wanted to give up my convertible to my older brother.....LOL
Though many years have passed I think of you all quite often with great affection and joy. May the Lord keep you during this difficult time.
With love and affection, Mike Reeder

I met Mitch in 1963 when his Uncle Jim and I began dating. I have watched him grow from a curious young child to an adult who became a loving, caring husband and dad. He always had a wonderful smile to share with everyone he met. He certainly created a great business with his wife, Doris, by his side. Remember that God who cared for Mitchell here will continue to care for him eternally. Sending prayers to your family. Love and Blessings, Aunt BJ
