In the winter of 1954 Neil met his perfect partner, Alice Louise Topping. They were married in June of 1955 and soon after, moved to Texas.

Neil was an active community member having served on various committees within the Spring Branch ISD and his neighborhood civic association.

Table tennis and bridge were two of his passions. He also loved to be outdoors tending to his plants and birds or visiting with neighbors.
