Ronnie Lane Neal

March 1, 1940 - January 10, 2021

Ronnie Lane Neal, 80, of Charlottesville, Va., passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, January 10, 2021, after a long battle with kidney disease.

He was born on March 1, 1940, in Walkertown, N.C., to Thurman Lee Neal and Ailene Craig Neal.

He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Carolyn Beck Neal; three children, Jacqueline Paige Neal (Paul Casalaspi) of Midothian, Va., Kristi Neal Packer (James) of Midlothian, Va., and Rob Landon Neal (Merribeth) of Charlottesville, Va.; two grandchildren, Landon Reid Neal and Abbey Lane Packer; a brother, Thurman Lee Neal Jr. (Ruby) and nephew, Michael Kevin Neal (Torena), all of Lexington, N.C.

A special thanks to Angie Jenkins of Davita Dialysis for her care and support over the past five years. Ronnie was a much loved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend who will be missed by many and we could say so much more about his life, but he made us promise that this was all we would include in his obituary.

There will be no memorial service at this time.

Donations in his memory may be made to the National Kidney Foundation or the Charlottesville-Albemarle Rescue Squad. And in his words, may all your days be Finer Than Frog Hair.

On behalf of myself the "the road builders" association (now VTCA), we fondly honor Ronnie, our volunteer president in 1992. Working with Ronnie (and Carolyn!) was always a pleasure.

To the Neal Family ... We are so very sorry for your loss. He certainly fought the fight and was a kind, generous man. A life well lived.

To all of the Neals - I was so sorry to hear of Mr. Neal's passing. Our families, along with the Stayments Clan, have been together for most of my life. Being with you in the hospital last year made a very difficult time easier - and it was refreshing to go between the rooms and tell stories about being neighbors even in the hospital! I send my love to you all and hope that you will find some peace knowing that he is at rest and free from pain. Much love to you all - we are all here for you - even from a distance! XOXOXOXO Tracey
