To All of Neals Family, My sincere sympathy and prayers. My association with Neal began in 1973 on a rusty old Tanker, S/S Thomas M. From my first encounter with Neal, I recognized his skill, as well as his character. It was my pleasure to work with Neal off and on, and call him "friend" until his retirement. We worked in hot humid and miserable environment , and I always remember no matter what the circumstance that devilish smile. He was a friend, gentleman, and loved colleague , they come no better. Rest in piece my friend, one day " the band of brothers will all wet a line together.

Our deepest sympathies to Neal's family at this sad time. Neal was an exceptional man, a true southern gentleman in the best meaning of that term. Both my late father and myself had many great times with him; professionally and personally. Neal was the best boiler control expert I have ever met and there was many a steam ship that would never have left port and some that might not have ever returned had it not been for Neal's skills. And it was always a pleasure to be in his company, as well. May he rest in well-earned peace. He and his family are in our family's prayers. Mike Leahy Jr. and family

With a heavy heart I write Norma and I will not be able to be there this week-end. Neal was always like a big brother to Herman and I and I have fond memories of being together fishing, going to movies, swimming and gathering in our grandparents backyard on Dunning St. with family and friends eating watermelon. We dearly love him and he will be missed but rejoice knowing he is up there fishing and having Christmas with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; You and all the family will be in our prayers, love you all. God Bless As Always, Thurman & Norma
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

It is with heavy heart that I have to tell you I will not be able to attend the funeral and celebration of life of my beloved and admired cousin Neal. To me and my family, he was the big brother I never had as I was growing up. I always looked up to him for his integrity, honesty and accomplishments. He will be missed. May God bless you and watch over you and your family at this time. As always...Herman i

What a wonderful obituary - obviously an exceptional man. I am a friend of Tami, and considering the quality of character she demonstrates I can't help but appreciate the wholesome and loving upbringing she must have had. God bless all and much aloha.
