In his earlier years he was a rodeo bareback bronc rider. Neal also enjoyed ranching.

Neal was an outstanding father, husband and friend. He loved the Lord and was an active member at First Baptist Church in Mason, Texas. He had a “servant’s heart” and was always offering to help others. He enjoyed playing 42, hunting, playing softball and making delicious BBQ. He was a great coach of baseball, soccer, and most importantly life! He was known to be witty, detail oriented, a sharp dresser and a friend to many.
