Neal Mandeville

Sept. 12th 1954-Dec. 20th, 2015

My Dad

My dad gave me life and taught me to

live, with drive, kindness and love

He was quiet and smart, with a gener-

ous heart; my dad is with me above

I’ve learned a lot, as he gave me a lot,

his hugs, his laugh and his smile

It’s hard that you’ve left, nothing’s the

same, but I know I’ll see you in

awhile

When I was a boy, the world was a

dream; I’m older now, it’s a shame

If I could go back, just for one day,

I’d hug you and hold you the same

Now I’m a dad, a father and blessed,

a son I have, and I know

I’ll smile once again, not in sorrow or

pain, as you’re skiing in heaven’s

white snow -Ross Mandeville

Neal took care of us all with dedication and deep love. He was calm, stable, wise, generous, caring, grounded and humble. A man of very few words, with a modest smile and soft twinkle. Dearly missed…

but never, ever to be forgotten.

A family memorial was held on
