Neal was serving as Sargent during the war and was severely injured and consequently suffered from serious complicated health problems for the remainder of his life. He loved nature, people, and animals and was well known in the community around Carroll and Boone counties. He was always ready and willing to help a friend and will be sorely missed.
Neal was born the third of four children and two stepchildren. He was preceded in death by Sylvia Mae Smith (mother) and George V. Nichols (father) Paul E. Smith (stepfather), Nathan L. Nichols (brother) and Randy Nichols (nephew.) He is survived by Dr. George V. Nichols (brother) and Dr. Patsy A. Nichols (sister-in-law), Murray, KY; Vickie L.
