    Neil, was a great person, always joking, laughing, caring on. I remember Neil from school as he went to school in Stover and graduated with my son Tim Thompson in 1997. He would come and stay at our house and was very well liked. R.I.P Neil to we all meet again. ❤️Rose Thompson Koechner

    I’m so sorry to hear you’re gone, man. I didn’t know you as an adult, but I knew you as a teen and boy did we have a great time learning the ropes of what was to become adulthood. Gone too young, man. Wishing your family and everyone who was blessed with your presence safe travels until they join you. Best wishes, man.

    This just breaks our heart over & over…
    You were one of the most loveable men we have ever met. The word talented does not even amount to what you could do….we will miss you every time we hear bluegrass or our computer breaks down…we loved you so much…Gene, Jo & Eddie Lee Colvin

    Neil was not just my best friend but a brother I didn’t know I had till two years ago. He was one of the kindest, humble, talented, intelligent and outgoing people I’ve ever known. There is a whole in my life now that will never be filled. He is sorely missed!
