He entered the Navy and served on submarines.  During this time, God immersed Neal in His Word and his relationship with Jesus grew immensely.

Jesus is his Source and has been these many decades.  Neal is blessed with the wonderful wife of his youth, Judy, three sons and a daughter, and twelve grandchildren.  Neal would enjoy hearing from you and arranging time to talk about life!  Catch him on Sunday or send a message.
