Grady Neeson Obituary
Henry Grady Neeson, Jr.

Shreveport, LA- Henry Grady Neeson Jr., was born on June 8, 1927 in Benton, LA to Eulalie J. Hanks Neeson & Henry Grady Neeson Sr. He was ushered into the presence of the Lord, by the Angels of God on December 8, 2015 at the age of 88. "To be absent from the body, is to be present with the Lord". 2 Corinthians 5:8.

Grady married the love of his life, Helon Anderson Neeson and they were blessed with 71 years of marriage, raising their three children in Shreveport. They always affirmed they "would do it all over again".

At the age of 17, he enlisted in the Merchant Marines and served until the end of WWII. Upon his return stateside, he began a career with Metropolitan Life Insurance Company. He retired after 20 years, to manage his real estate property and continued doing so until his health declined in 2012.

Grady accepted Jesus into his heart at an early age. He served in music ministry, as a Sunday School teacher, as a Deacon, and working on many church building programs. He loved his family & it was his desire that his children would come to know the Lord and to teach them integrity. Words cannot really express what a wonderful, compassionate, and selfless person he was.
