Please join us in cele-
brating the life of Steven
Randolph Neal. Steve, as
he liked to be called,
passed January 11, 2020
with his family by his side
at Good Samaritan Hospi-
tal in Portland, Ore.
Steve was born in Boise,
Idaho on December 21,
1966 and welcomed into
his home by his parents
February 1, 1967. Steve
g rew up in Wishram,
Wash., with his sister and parents. In his youth he
played basketball, ran track and rode his bicycle all
over the area. When he was 16, he and friends rode
their bikes from Wishram, Wash., to Chico, Calif., a
trip of 990 miles.
As a young man, Steve was an avid fisher, hunter,
outdoorsman and darts enthusiast. He often took mul-
tiple day hunting and fishing trips.
Steve worked many jobs in his life. He was a cook
in the Dalles and Biggs Junction, worked in Fisheries
in Alaska, built windsurfing boards in Goldendale,
was a bartender in Wishram, and was a general
handyman and scrapper.
Steve was a loving, family oriented individual who
cared deeply for those around him. Although more
stubborn than a mule, he would also give you the
shirt off his back if you were cold.
Steve is missed everyday by his sister and brother-
in-law, Cindy and Doyle Carter, his son, Jonathon and
his many loving niece, nephews, aunts, uncles,
cousins and friends.
Steve is preceded in death by his father Keith Neal
and his mother Virginia Neal, his grandparents
Bernard and Geneva Bell, and Fred and Vera Neal
We will be celebrating Steve's life at 6 pm, February
28, 2020 at the Wishram School.
