Obituary

Paul L. Neal passed away April 28, 2014 at home, surrounded by his wife and family, one day short of his 84th birthday.

Paul was raised in Alleman, IA and moved to Oildale, CA for his high school years. When he returned to Iowa, he married Marilyn Tompkins and they had five children: Linda (Marius), Sandy, Patty (Sam), Jimmy (Angel) and Tammy (Ron). In 1976, Paul married Patricia Bos and gained three step-children: David (Carrie), Connie (Eric) and Melissa. Paul and Pat later adopted Shelby Faith, who still is a minor child. Paul was preceded in death by his mother, Louise Lantz; sister, Deloris Neal; and son, Jimmy Neal.

Early in his marriage to Marilyn, Paul drove a bus for the City of Des Moines and a ready-mix truck for J.C. White. He later became a business agent for Local No. 90. He then became a deputy Polk County sheriff until he retired. After retiring, he worked at the S.E. 14th & Maury St. Kum & Go as a stocker.

Paul and Pat bought and remodeled a farmhouse on E. 68th Street in Pleasant Hill and lived there more than 40 years.

A visitation with refreshments will be held from 5-8 p.m. on Friday, May 2 at Grandview Park Funeral Home, E. 33rd & Hubbell Ave. in Des Moines. Memorial contributions may be made to the family.
