Frank A. Neely
June 26, 1933 ~ February 14, 2015
Frank A Neely, age 81, of New Braunfels, was called home by his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on February 14, 2015 with his family by his bedside. He was born on June 26, 1933 in Beaumont, Texas to the late John A. and Kathryn Neely. Frank was a 1951 graduate of Thomas Edison High School in San Antonio. Upon graduation, he joined the United States Navy. He served for four years during the Korean War aboard the USS Ulvert M. Moore as a Quarter Master. After his tour in the Navy, he found his life and passion in the Convention and Trade Show business. Frank's greatest accomplishment was his 50 year plus relationship with The Future Farmers of America and Tom Maynard. They gave him an honorary lifetime membership in 2008 in Lubbock, TX. Another long contract was with the popular Wurstfest Festival for some 35 plus years. It seemed only natural that he would decorate for this great German celebration since he was a lifetime resident. Frank was a long time member and deacon of Good News Fellowship Church in Seguin. Frank is survived by his loving wife, Callie, of 47 years; children, Jack Devaney and his wife Sylvia, Sherrie Wagner and her husband Joseph, Eugene Cox and his wife Karen, Joe Shelby Neely, Sr. and his wife Angela, Bryan Cox and his wife April, and Casey Neely and his wife Bri-Anna. Also surviving are twelve grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. Frank was a caring, loving husband and a great father. He will be missed dearly by his family and friends. His wishes were to be cremated and a celebration of life service is scheduled for 2:00pm on Saturday, February 28, 2015 at Good News Fellowship Church, 1123 B&B Rd in Seguin.
