Neal Arrington Obituary
NEAL ARRINGTON unexpectedly passed away on Friday, January 23, 2015 due to heart failure. Neal was born in Texas as William O'Neal Arrington on February 18, 1938. His parents were Arvy Cleo Arrington and Dovie Mae Moore. He had three sisters, Dora Ann, Nadine and Glenda Ruth. His family moved to Arkansas when he was a teenager, and his friends immediately gave him the nickname "Tex". He married Elta Evelyn Ackley in 1957 and had two children, Marquita and Mark. He worked as a manager, then district manager, for Hardy Shoes, a division of Genesco, for over 20 years. Divorce and a career change brought Neal to the attention of Ofelia Diaz. They met through his real estate business "Joe Frogg Realty". Neal and Ofelia had been married for 13 years and her children and grandchildren love Neal as they do their own family. Fortunately, Neal changed the name of his real estate office to "Interstate Realty"; he has made many friends in Riverside through his career as a real estate broker. Throughout his life he had loved cars. From tinkering on his own and friends' cars, to racing stock cars on dirt tracks then collecting and restoring classic cars, he always had at least one special car in his garage. He is survived by his children Marquita Serio and Mark Arrington and grandchildren, Eric Serio and Kyle Serio, as well as his sisters Nadine and Glenda of Springdale, Arkansas. Services will be held at Harvest Christian Fellowship, 6115 Arlington Ave., Riverside, Wednesday, Feb. 4, 2015. Funeral Service @ 11am. Graveside to follow @ Olivewood Memorial Park at 1PM. Services entrusted to Inland Memorial 1-800-848-0905.
