John F. Neville, November 30, 1954 – February 17, 2018, It is with great sadness that the family of John announces his passing at the age of 63 years following a long illness with cancer. However, John was a Man of God and they are comforted to know that he is now at peace in Heaven. A native of West Virginia, John was born at Montgomery General Hospital on November 30, 1954 to parents, John Neville and Clara Sizemore-Neville. He attended Clay County High School until volunteering his services in the United States Navy where he studied nuclear engineering and mechanics. Later, he became a resident of Millersburg, OH and used his training to become a very skilled and respected mechanic as a loyal employee of International Packaging Specialties, Inc. for the past 24 years. In life, John will be forever remembered by those he leaves behind for his honesty, his integrity, his fairness and straightforward approach in his dealings with other people. He was truly a man of his word.
In death he is survived by his wife of 25 years, Linda Yoder of Millersburg, OH and their twin sons, Darrin (Amber) and Christopher Neville; his sisters, Virginia Elkins and Connie Dorfner (David) of WV; his mother-in-law, Sue Yoder of Millersburg; 3 step grandchildren; and nieces, nephews, one uncle, many in-laws, cousins, co-workers, and friends.
He was preceded in death by mother, Clara Sizemore of Bentree, WV; father, John F. Neville of Chicago, IL; stepfather, George “Petie” Morton; grandparents, Homer and Calista Sizemore of Lizemore, WV and John and Grace Neville of Parkersburg, WV; and many, many other loved ones.
