Johnny Neel Memorial Fund

His life was a blessing, his memory a treasure.
Forever loved beyond words & missed beyond measure.

It is with much regret that we are creating this page to share the passing of Johnny Neel.  On Tuesday, June 13th, 2017 Johnny suddenly and unexpectedly passed away.  We all know what a lively spirit he had and what a selfless person he was.  Not only did he brighten our days during his time on Earth, he is giving back now by being an international donor - potentially saving someone's life in the future.

They say it takes a minute to find something special about a person;
an hour to truly appreciate them;
only a day to love them;
but an entire life time to forget them.
Anyone that had the opportunity to know Johnny, knows how true that really is.

We are creating this page for two reasons.

First, due to his unexpected and untimely passing, our family was not prepared for funeral and memorial expenses.  We would like to humbly request donations that will help pay for the services that will celebrate his life.

Second, we are asking everyone to use this opportunity to leave a message letting us know how Johnny touched your life or to leave a message directly to him.  It will bring us great comfort to know how he impacted the world and we hope it gives you the opportunity to send your thoughts to him.

We truly appreciate your support and ask that you respect the privacy of our family during this time.  As arrangements are made, we will update this page so that you can share in the celebration of his life.

Those we love don't go away; they walk beside us every day.  Unseen, unheard, but always near; still loved, still missed and forever dear.  Goodbye is not forever; goodbye is not the end.  It simply means we'll miss you until we meet again.
