I am so sorry to hear about Neal's passing.I have fond memories of taking drums lessions from Mike Shively at the Percussion Center.When I was a kid Neal helped my parents out with picking out my first drum kit. It was a red Premier Set. I took that set of drums to Branson,Canada and did alot gigs around the Fort Wayne area. I still have that same drum kit today.Percussion is my passion and Neal was apart of making my dreams come a live.Thank you Neal for all your support. God Bless you!

Neal was a source of information and encouragement when I began my drumming journey. I miss the old Percussion Center---a great place to hang out and always well stocked and competitively priced. Neil was the heart and soul of it. Rest in peace.

Fond, fond memories of the Percussion Center and Neal talking to me seriously about drumming and percussion. He had a profound effect on all of us. And what better way to sum up a meaningful life. Thanks, Neal.

I met Neal not long after his doors opened for business. I used to ride by bike there when I was taking lessons from Mike Shively. I bought all of my equipment from him and still have it all to this day. (bought in '74) Even after I moved away after high school I would bump into him now and again. He always remembered me. He was ALWAYS kind, attentive and supportive in my musical endeavors. Truly heaven has gained a great soul and we have lost one. Rest in peace my friend. I believe the Lord would say to you, "Well done."
