Lester “David” Neal went home to the Lord on February 9, 2019. He was born on May 13, 1934 to the late Cecil and Ruby (Judy) Neal.
A graduate of Messick High School in Memphis, TN, David served two years in the U.S. Army before attending Georgia Tech and Memphis State University. He worked as human resources director for Flint Steel Corporation and Tulsa Technology Center.
David was a faithful husband, loving father, and devoted Christian. His interests included woodworking, photography, and travel. Although a quiet man, he had a wonderful sense of humor and surprised us often with his wit and jocularity.
David is survived by his wife, Barbara “Diana” Neal, their daughter, Bonnie “Caroline” Flinn, her husband Robert Flinn, and their son Cole Flinn. He is also survived by his sister Cynthia Darnall and her husband Lynn Darnall. David was preceded in death by his parents, Judy and Cecil Neal, and his brother, James (Jimmy) Neal.
