Neal was one of the greats. Whether he was playing with his grandchildren, hosting friends and family at his home, sitting through graduation ceremonies, or just being open to conversations about award shows, Neal always had a unique spin to life.

The Rabbittown Gang misses him.

With deepest sympathy to the Zollars Jr. family during your time of grief...God is for you a refuge and strength, A help that is there to be found during difficult times...May God provide you with peace and comfort to endure the days ahead...(Psalm 62:8).

I have had the privilege to work with Neal at two different hospitals. He was a tremendous asset to our team at WellStar Cobb Hospital. Neal had a wealth of knowledge to share but moreover, he always had a positive attitude. I'll remember him as a kindred spirited guy who engendered kindness.

Neal, you will be missed. Your friend, Kem.
