Reed Malcolm Neal of Oak Hill, Florida, formally of Dayton, Pennsylvania and then Hendersonville, North Carolina, passed away on Saturday, September 10, 2022, at the age of 70.

Reed was born on February 15, 1952, to Clarence Neal and Eleanor (Heffelfinger) Neal who both preceded him in death, with three older brothers, Clarence Jr(deceased), Ernest, and Duane.

Reed was married to Vicki-Re (George) Neal, who preceded him in death, and had two sons, Deric married to Angela (Long) Neal and Toby married to Venessa (Riley) Neal. Reed was a proud Pops and to Brooke (Neal) Breidbart, Olivia Neal, Gavin Neal, and Kyla Helbling. Great Pop Pop to Aurora Breidbart and a second great-grandchild on the way. After a long period of remorse and sadness, Reed was so very happy to find love once again and married Mariann (Forster) Neal. He gained additional family with Matthew and Leanna Forster and their daughter Addy, a brother Marc and God Children Tati and Alek.

Reed’s hobbies were entertaining those around him, spending time with friends and family, enjoying life to the fullest, traveling to iconic and historic locations worldwide, taking care of his landscape gardens and home, as well as “speed boating” in his pontoon.

Reed left the family farm, in body not spirit, to attend Beauty School and soon after opened his first hair salon. Reed continued his education in the art and science of cosmetology and became a National Performing Artist for Redkin Laboratories, an in-salon consultant and educator, and later a collegiate professor.

Reed was a member of the Masonic Lodge, a 32 Degree Mason, Shriner, member of the Jay Cees, Elks lodge, Moose Lodge, supporter of the Mosquito Lagoon Aquatic Preserve and collaborated with the preserve in care taking and monitoring clam beds beside his dock.

Services will be private and Reed will be laid to rest at Sea Pines Cemetery in Edgewater, Florida.
