The first time I saw Al Neuharth was at Bernards Surf, My husband and I were there for dinner. I remember a very distinguished and classy looking man! We have been staying in Cocoa Beach for 30 years in Feb. and Mar. It won't "feel" the same without his physical appearance there. Our condolences to you, Rachel, and your family,
Hancock, Wi 54943
I have been thinking of you Rachael and your children. I am deeply sorry for the loss of a father and husband to all of you. It was always such a pleasure to come over and teach all of you swimming and how proud your father was of each and everyone of you and your accomplishments.
There was always a kind word and a big smile every time I was there. I am sure you will have many beautiful memories to keep him alive in your hearts always. Love to you all, Lisa Poirier
Thank You Al Neuharth For The Wonderful Newspaper That We Know As USA Today!! Now Rest In Peace My Friend, Your Work Is Now Done!!
I worked with Al when he was with the Associated Press in Sioux Falls...I later took some of the first sports photos, basketball action, fir his ill fated SoDak Sports weekly. As a 19 year old kid at the time Al treated all with a alot of respect. What a great man who deserved to get to the top. I only wish I had a copy of one of those papers.
I'm sorry for your loss. May the God of comfort be with you and your family during your time of grief. My prayers go out to you and the family.

Dear Family and Friends:
I just wanted to take a moment to offer my sincere condolences on the passing of a terrific newspaperman, Al Neuharth.
Below are my views of Al :
1) The Al Neuharth we knew had great courage. He was never afraid to speak out against the status quo and conventional wisdom……
2) The Al Neuharth we knew had amazing wisdom. He always knew his subject matter - - and could always defend it…..
3) The Al Neuharth we knew had conviction. He always felt strong about his ideas, no matter what anyone else thought.
4) The Al Neuharth we knew had clarity. His message was typically simple, concise and easily understood…..
5) And the Al Neuharth we knew had credibility. He dang sure knew how to walk the walk and talk the talk.
No one had more compromising integrity than Al . He always thought with discipline and honesty. He could sort through flattery, through politics and could always see things as they truly were.
He was a most remarkable man. I always viewed Al as incredibly competent, very caring and amazingly confident.
My thoughts and prayers are with the Family.
Grief can be so hard, but our special memories help us cope. Remembering you and your loved one today and always.
My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time. I will miss seeing his smiling face saying "Hello" as I sat working in the family home. RIP Mr. Neuharth, you are a well admired man who has given so much to so many. You will be missed.
I would like to offer my condolences to the family and friends of Al Neuharth.
USA Today helped to connect America.
Rest In Peace (RIP)

My father collected all of the issues until he died. I inherited all of them ever printed up to his death, and I still have the collection going. Luvin' them all!
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
I had the opportunity to serve as Mr. Neuharth's Chief Pilot while he was Chairman of Gannett. We were involved in the launch of USA Today which changed the face of journalism. He took us around the world, visiting many countries, while he interviewed leaders who had made their own impact on history. He expected the very best from those who worked with him and it was my honor to have known him. Our deepest sympathies to Jan, Dan, and the Neuharth-Fornes family.
i will miss you tito ...
We never met, but Al Neuharth was my 4th cousin (we shared German Russian ancestors). Rest in peace Mr. Neuharth.
Will miss seeing you on the Beach on your Bike.

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.
My deepest sympathies. May the "God of all comfort," help to ease the pain of your grief during this time.(1 Cor 1:3,4)
Truly sorry for your loss. May the god of comfort be with you. Matthew 5:4 "Happy are those who mourn since they will be comforted."
Al Neuharth was USA Today. He was eloquent in his writing and educated a generation with his wit, humor and wonderful journalism. Sincere condolences to his family and to all who waited for USA Today and his editorials. He will be missed. A giant

Offering my deepest condolences during this difficult time, I'm so very sorry for your loss, death is something we are never prepared for, but please find comfort in knowing sickness, pain and death will one day be no more.
Worked with the S.O.B. in Cocoa Beach getting out that 1st USA Today paper. He and Vince S. were such great guys to work with. He really took pride in the paper and those people whom he worked with. God bless, you will be missed but never forgotten.
We remain grateful for your kindness. It was an honor to meet you.
