Neal worked a long 35 years with AT&T, South Central Bell, and BellSouth.
He loved baseball, from coaching his two sons, attending his grandson’s ballgames, and watching the Atlanta Braves. Neal spent a great deal of his life either on a ball field coaching, sitting in the stands keeping the scorebook or yelling at the umpires, or relaxing in his favorite chair watching games on TV.
He was also very involved and loved his church family at Lakeside Baptist. He worked his whole life to get to Heaven and has now made it to the finish line.
