John was born May 22, 1939 in Haskell, Texas. He had two brothers and a sister. He married Kay Test in 1963 and had two children, John Neeley and Terri Haider. He was blessed and overjoyed with eleven grandchildren.

Following four years of service in the Navy, his career consisted of serving as a Police Officer in both Abilene and Irving for a total of 33 years and retired from the Irving Police Department in 1995.

Lake life and activities with his children and grandchildren provided so much joy in his life. He was an honest, caring, and funny man who gave great joy through his harmonica playing and artwork.

I remember when Lt. Neeley worked in the Irving Police Department Communications Section - he was working as an Acting Captain. He was always so calm, kind and easy going. I am thankful for his presence during my early years at the police department. He was a true professional.

My condolences go out to the Neeley Family.
