Gary Lee Neff

June 20, 1943 — August 29, 2022



Gary Lee Neff, 79, was born June 20, 1943, to Lee and Lillian (Rueckheim) Neff in Chicago, IL. Gary passed peacefully in the arms of his loving wife, Beverly Neff.

Gary had a long and prosperous professional career that included top salesman with Harrison Paint, Pittsburg Plate Glass Company, and Sherwin Williams. Before retirement, he and his wife started a water purification business together.

He played soccer at Ohio State University, which led to his love for all things Ohio State. He later took his competitive athleticism to the golf course. He enjoyed gardening and was an avid reader.

Gary met his soon-to-be wife in the islands of Florida. They later moved to Georgia to be closer to family.

Gary is survived by two sons and four daughters, Todd (Laura) Neff, Nancy Neff, Diane (Dustin) Chapin, Michelle Shultz, Tina (Robert) Amidei, Tim (Merideth) Shultz; grandchildren, Alexis (Ross) Hedlund, Eric (Lauren) Neff, Jacob Neff, Emily Neff, Taylor Amidei, Ryan Amidei, Logan Shultz, and Savannah Shultz; and his sister Gail (Ron) Ruiz, and many nieces and nephews; and former wife, JoAnn Davey.

A Private celebration of Gary’s life will be held.
