Mr. Neville loved nothing more than spending time with his family. He grew up in the Irvington neighborhood of Baltimore City, the 7th of 15 children of the late Fred and Ella (Siegfried) Neville. After graduating from Mt. St. Joe in 1941 he worked for the B & O Railroad until he enlisted in the Army where he served for over three years. After the War he met Norma Jean Leslie whom he married in 1948. Preferring to work outside, he was a member of the Baltimore City Police Department for several years before leaving to become a letter carrier, a career he loved for 32 years.

John Neville will be remembered as a kind, generous and gentle man who was loved by everyone he met and who will be missed by many. Contributions in his name may be made to the St. Joseph Monastery Parish, 251 S. Morley Street, Baltimore, MD 21229.
