Gary Lee Neel Obituary
Gary Lee Neel 1941-2017
age 76, of Navarre, passed away on Tuesday, June 6, 2017, following a brief illness. Gary retired from Sugardale Foods, Perry Local Schools, and was a 25 year member of the Richville Fire Department where he attained the rank of Captain. He was a 1959 graduate of Perry High School and remained involved with the Perry sports programs for many years, serving as the President of the Perry High School Booster Club, coaching Richville Hot Stove Baseball Teams, and Richville Girls Softball Teams. He had many hobbies and interests, but his favorite without a doubt was fishing. Chances are, if you hook a big one at Petros Lake, he put it there (Gary's relocation program – smile!). Born in Canton, Ohio, on March 30, 1941, to the late, Gladys and Edward E. Neel.
He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Rebecca (Becky) Neel; daughter, Sherria Neel-Black; brothers, Rod (Nita) Neel and Lynn Neel; nephew, Ryan Neel; his four-legged buddy, Mandy; and a host of extended family and friends.
Private services will be held at a later date. Memorial contributions may be made in Gary's memory to the Richville Fire and Community Association (6425 Bosford S.W., Navarre, OH 44662).
My Dad gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person. He believed in me. Thank you Poppa. Arrangements entrusted to the Mark R. Vrabel Funeral Home of North Canton, Ohio (330-452-4041)
