B.R. "Russ" Neathery
A celebration of a life blessed and lived to the fullest is planned for 11:00 am this Friday, October 11 at Pierre Funeral Home, 2601 West Franklin Street for B.R. "Russ" (Uncle Ray) Neathery, of Evansville, Indiana.
Russ, a navy veteran, one of the original founders of the West Side Optimist Club and owner of Franklin Lanes until his retirement in 1985, peacefully joined his beloved wife, Helen, on August 26th just three days before their 64th wedding anniversary.
A devout Christian soul, Russ was a member of the Salem United Methodist Church in Evansville and the Petrie Memorial United Methodist Church in his hometown of Elkton, Kentucky.
In lieu of flowers, and in recognition of Uncle Ray's life dedicated to Evansville's youth, through numerous programs committed to instilling values in young people across the area, please make contributions to the Boys & Girls Club of Evansville.
