John's kindness was apparent in his very features, in his soft voice, in his act of bending down to touch the dog under the conference table, and in his partnership in compassion with his wife, Wendy. Animals need all the friends they can get, and John was an upstanding, decent, and intelligent person who understood what is right and just, as does Wendy Neu, his soulmate, in his memory. From all of us at PETA,

The first time JJ met you John I stayed at your home in Chelsea. Each and every time you left an indelible impression on me. You may be a man of few words but they are full of wisdom. You have done so much for this planet and all its inhabitants. You are on your new journey John and im sure you will continue on with who you are - A very unique human being who has touched so many and has done so much. I am one of those fortunate ones who have shared that honor to know you and be inspired by you. Your physical being may not be here but be sure that who you are will always be remembered. Thank you for peverything John we will continue the struggle on the other side!

I can still remember speaking by phone to John and then in person when he climbed the 56 or so steps to my top floor office at The Hudson School . He was seeking advice about a neighborhood child who he believe would benefit from educational support. He wanted to help the child who wasn't reading on grade level. He wanted to find the right school for him because he felt the public schools in our town were not working for this little boy. He thought the child might have dyslexia, as i recall. I made some suggestions. Our friendship began that day. John and Wendy then became supporters of more children who needed financial scholarships to attend the independent school i had founded that had a need-bind admissions policy. John would drop off a check before the winter break each year for the scholarship fund. John saw the possibilities in everyone and wanted to play a role in helping them fulfill their potentialities. That's who John was and he continues to inspire me. I honor him by trying to carry on his vision.

John, it's hard to believe that it's been 6 years since we lost you. I feel like I grew up with you in the company and that you always had my back. Over the years our family watched you evolve from an energetic young businessman to a world class business leader and philanthropist. Whatever success I've achieved I owe to you and Uncle Hugo for giving me my opportunity of a lifetime. Thank you for that and wherever you are, please know that your memory is also a blessing to so many others.

My deepest sympathy to Wendy and family, Hugo Neu, and to all who are saddened by John's sudden passing. John was a man who willingly offered his intelligence, experience, and compassion to help so many. Those of us who have been graced by meeting John will always remember his kindness and determination.

I wish to extend my deepest, heartfelt condolences to Wendy, the extended Neu family, Irma and all at the Hugo Neu Corporation.

John was my Chairman. He was a visionary leader whose unwavering commitment to excellence characterized not only his business success but also his engagement in humanitarian and environmental endeavors.

Over time, John became my valued mentor and my trusted friend. By constantly challenging me, he taught me so much of his business acumen and how that impacted his philanthropic goals of providing opportunities for growth to those less fortunate than he. It was an honor to know and work for/with John. He was a man with great passion for life, who was willing to pursue his dreams of making the world a better place.

I was not ready to say goodbye
Your disease just over took
So on this day we remember you
I take a second look

Our friendship is forever
Until death did we part
Although your are away physically
You are always in my heart

- Kim Thompson

A great man has left us. John's legacy will live on as we honor him daily in the way we strive to live our lives by his measures of excellence and compassion.

John, You will missed more than words can say. Your advise, warmth and gentle way will forever live in the hearts of all those who knew and loved you. In times like these I am reminded that death ends a life but not a relationship. The relationships of all those whom you touched will live on forever. I am going to plant a tree at the farm, the Triple C Ranch ( as living memorial to you and your friendship. I am also going to buy a bench and put it under that tree with your name and a few words about the incredible way you touched all those who were blessed to have known you.

Dearest Wendy,
Words cannot express my shock and sadness - my heart aches for you as you grapple with this loss. I send my profound sympathies to everyone who had the privilege of knowing John - so many were moved by his warmth, compassion, practicality, generosity and wisdom. Nan Dale and everyone at Action Against Hunger.
