William “Todd” Neal

June 25, 2020

With deepest sorrow we announce that William “Todd” Neal, age 39, died unexpectedly on Sunday June 21, 2020 from heart failure. He was born March 26, 1981 in Paducah, Ky. to parents Donald Neal and Patricia (Petersen) Neal, though he spent most of his life in Cantonment, FL.

Todd, as he was known to family and friends, was a 1999 graduate of Tate High School. He was known as a jack of all trades and held numerous jobs in construction, roofing and landscaping throughout his life. He was a generous friend and family member with a huge heart, who would literally give the shirt off his back. He had a great sense of humor. Those who knew Todd, even just a little, lost a shining light in their lives.
He will be missed every day by his parents Don and Patti, sons Derrick K. Neal and Jordan Goon all of Cantonment, daughter Lauren (Ted) Fisher, granddaughters Sadie and Payton of Beulah, Brothers James (Sarah) Groshong of Cantonment and Jason (Tracy) Neal of Sharpe, Ky. Grandparents Larry and Juanita Barker of Waverly, Tn. , his loving Aunts, Uncles, Nieces, Nephews, Cousins, and many loving friends.

He is spending time now with his Granny Myrtle Way, Grandfather William H. Neal, and his brother Derrick B. Neal whom he has missed for so long. We suspect he spends a lot of time riding his horse Thunder through the streets of heaven as he once did in Cantonment.

Friends and family are invited to visit Todd’s family at Faith Chapel North, 1000 Hwy 29 South, Cantonment, FL on Saturday June 27th from 10 to 11 am. A Memorial Service will be held there immediately following.
