Robert was a good-hearted Christian man who spent his life loving family and appreciating all the friendships he made along the way. He could tell some of the most amazing stories and loved to make others laugh. His own laugh was infectious, it could light up a room putting smiles on the faces of all who heard it. Robert came to Texas to work in the oil-fields, but soon after found himself self-employed, for a while he owned a septic tank service, but found his calling doing plumbing, where he got to use his gift of being a people person (the gift of gab) while helping others. Those that didn't know him for the plumbing business knew him from being a school bus driver for many years in Colorado City or as a past city councilman. In his spare time he enjoyed doing scrap metal, reading his books, and newspapers, singing, riding his motorcycle, and being with his grandchildren.

Robert is survived by his wife Cheryl of Colorado City, his sons; Todd McNeal of Mesquite, Benjamin McNeal and wife Julie of Colorado City, and Christopher McNeal of Colorado City, and by his daughters Amy Foster and husband Jared of Colorado City, and Alicia Melvin and husband David of Chesapeake, Virginia, as well as by his grandchildren Jacob McNeal, Rachel McNeal, Kennedy McNeal, Hunter Foster, Erin Foster, and Benjamin Foster. He is also survived by his brother David McNeal of Voorhees, N.J. and by his sisters Carolyn Wilcox and husband Eddie of Arizona, Thelma Powers and husband Charlie of Old Orchard Beach Maine, and Debbie McNeal of New Sweden Maine.

He was preceded in death by his parents, an infant son Robert Charles McNeal, by 4 brothers Charles Sheldon McNeal, Wilfred McNeal, Wilson Gary McNeal, Melvin McNeal,and a sister Mavis Marsh.
