Neil A. Schiavo, 71, of Wyomissing, passed away on Saturday, September 1, at Reading Hospital, surrounded by his loving family.

Born March 12, 1947, in Hazleton, Pa., he was the son of the late Neal P. and Theresa (Lettiere) Schiavo.

He was married for 42 years to Karen (Wanner) Schiavo, his soulmate and business partner.

A graduate of Reading High School, Neil was a realtor all of his life, last working for Berkshire Hathaway Home

Services, West Lawn. He simply loved selling houses and helping people find their dream home. When not working, Neil enjoyed boating, water skiing and swimming, as well as traveling with Karen nationally and overseas. Italy was their favorite destination.

In addition to his wife, Neil is survived by his son, Brian, husband of Susan, Sinking Spring; his stepdaughter, Dawn, wife of Jody Rush, Tucson, Ariz.; and his granddaughter, Emily Marie Schiavo. Neil will also be dearly missed by his beloved puppies, GiGi and Daisy.

The Schiavo family would like to thank the caregivers at the Ann B. Barshinger Cancer Institute-Lancaster General Health, the Reading Hospital and Heartland Hospice for their compassion and expert care of Neil through his battle. In addition, they would like to thank the Grande family, which Neil always considered his "second family," the Wixon family and special friends, Kayla Kateman and Donna
