Neal Alan Wohler was born on November 14, 1942, to Neal Wohler and Estella M. Mojeski in San Bernardino, California. Neal entered into eternal peace called to be with the Lord on March 16, 2021, at home in Mountain View, Missouri, at the age of 79 years.
After Neal graduated high school as valedictorian of his class, Terrie Trombetta became his partner for many years. And although they had no biological children, the couple raised Terrie's nephew, Nathan, as their own.
Neal owned his own carpet business in Fontana, California for many years. He was very handy with tools of all kinds and could fix anything. Back in the day Neal and his brother, Gary, and brother-in-law, Aaron, had a love for hot rods. Neal sold his 66 Caprice to Aaron which he then restored over the years. When Neal would see the car, he would always have a smile on his face, would laugh, and ask Aaron why he kept the car after all of these years. Aaron still has the car today and cherishes it because of the memories it brings to him.
Neal was always a very positive, kind, and loving person who would always smile.
Neal is preceded in death by his parents, Neal Wohler and Estella Marie; nephew, Jimmy Enborg; brother, Gary Wohler; sister, Marcia Wohler; cousin, Billy Colhop; aunt, Lousie Lawyer; and uncle and aunt, Bill and Lela Colhop.Neal is survived by his younger sisters, Susan Nichols, and Laura Enborg and husband, Aaron; nephews, David Wohler and Gary James; and niece, Jennifer Nichols.
He is remembered by his good friend and neighbor Jerry Denton, his family, and all of his friends he met throughout the years. His hobbies included woodworking, hot rods, and a love for fishing. He loved taking care of the stray cats in his neighborhood along with the ones who lived with him. Neal had many favorite cats, however, there was one cream-colored cat named J.D. who stood out among the others. He rescued J.D. from a car engine and loved him for over fifteen years. God bless Neal and may he rest in eternal peace with all of his relatives before him. He was loved by those who knew him and will be truly missed.
Private family services will be planned at a later date in California.
Cremation arrangements were made under the direction of Yarber Mortuary, Mountain View, Missouri. Condolences may be expressed at www.yarbermortuary.com.
