Henry O'neal Neal Wall

Macon, GA After a brief illness, the Reverend Dr. Neal Wall, is rejoicing with his Lord in Heaven. He was born in Treutlen County to the late George & Hazel Wall. He attended Berry College and proudly served his country in the Air Force. He later received his undergraduate degree from Mercer University and post-graduate degrees from Luther Rice Seminary. However, he was an avid Georgia Bulldog at heart.

In October, 2019 he was recognized for 60 years in the ministry, which included pastorates of Baptist Churches in the Middle GA area: Snowhill, Pleasant Hill, Plainfield, Midway, Bellevue (27 yrs.), and presently, Flovilla (16). He served as a Chaplain for both the Macon Sheriff's & Fire Departments, Baptist Village, and the GA Department of Homeland Security. He held numerous leadership positions at local and state levels for the GA Baptist Convention.

Neal adored and treasured his wife of 62 years, Betty. He is survived by his daughters, Rhonda (Keith) Turner, Terry (Chris) Ivey, and Kim (Travis) Bryant, his grandchildren: Rachel (Travis) McGrew, Drew (Sarah) Turner, Blake (Maddi) Ivey, Madison (Troy) Vander Hoek, Kendyl & Larson Bryant, his great-grandchildren: Collins & Oliver McGrew, Luna & Henry Turner, Zeke & Libby Ivey, several cousins, nieces, & nephews, his beloved aunt, Opal Wall, and dear friends of Soperton High School's 1955 class.

The family expresses gratitude to many friends & families who have prayed and shared their love. 2 Tim. 4:7 "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith."
