He was preceded in death by his siblings, Harold Dorsch, Evelyn Harvey, Adeline Sawyer and Nobel Dorsch. He graduated High School from Bird City High in 1943. He served in the Korean War returning home to marry Audrey Lucille Shoemaker on December 4, 1949. They made their home in Flagler, Colorado, where they were wheat farmers. He made major contributions to Soil Conservation and patented the sweep plow which changed dry land farming. In 1965 Neal traveled to what was then the Congo building 3 water stations that each provided clean water to an entire village. In 1968, he took his family to Haiti at which time he worked on a project building a hydro-electric system from the river to give electricity to a Hospital and Orphanage that previously only had 2 hours of power a day that eventually powered the entire village of Limbe, Haiti population 40,000. He traveled, spoke and share his experience raising funds and awareness for the plight of others less fortunate for many years. Continuing to desire to be of service to others, he and his wife Audrey relocated to Mission, Texas in 1988 to start Melody Lane Christian Renewal Center which continues to carry on the legacy that is the culmination of a lifetime of giving and serving others.
