Jerry Joe Neal of Covington, GA died unexpectedly of a heart attack on February 23, 2021 at the age of 73. Jerry was preceded in death by his parents Ozell Neal and Virginia (Sollers) Neal-Vogle, his stepdaughter Frankie (Farmer) Merrell, and grand-daughter Natalya Bellah.
Jerry is survived by his wife Tammy Neal, his brother Leo Neal (wife Sherry) of Lawton, OK, two children Angelia Cozzens and Coby Neal both of Denver, CO, step-children Cody Farmer (wife Melanie) of Van Buren, AR, Cody Bellah (wife Kelly) of Monroe, GA and Jennifer Bellah of Covington, GA and 6 grandkids Cole, Kate, Lana, Madison, Grady and Gretchen.
Jerry was born in Elk City, OK January 22, 1948. He graduated from Berlin High School and Cameron University.
He loved his family and friends with all his heart, loved the lord Jesus, took choosing the perfect greeting card very serious, loved good old fashion rock-nroll, played the guitar better than he thought, enjoyed big boy toys, survived a motorcycle crash and cancer, he picked cotton as a kid and drove a tractor as a teen. He taught school, raised cattle, worked in the oil field and then finally landed in the environmental businesses ever since he moved to the Atlanta area in the early 90’s. He was the kind of grandpa that would play tea party or sing silly karaoke. He loved to play silly pranks and was often seen with a smile. He will be deeply missed.
A memorial will be held at a later date in the Elk City area.
