Neal Dye 9/18/1944-11/5/2020
Neal Dye (76) was called to heaven on November 5, 2020. Neal was born in Trinidad, Colorado, but grew up in Espanola, New Mexico. Neal met his wife Janis in 1963 and they were married in 1964 and celebrated 55 years of marriage. They spent most of their years in Los Alamos, New Mexico, where they raised their two children: son David and daughter Deborah. On Neal’s retirement in 2001, they moved to La Veta, Colorado, where Neal had spent many summers as a child visiting his relatives. Neal had a wonderful sense of humor and was so proud of himself when he could play a prank on one of his fellow co-workers or family members. He loved life. Neal loved tools, so after retirement he spent many hours in his garage working on various projects.
Neal is survived by his loving and caring wife, Janis; son David (Dawn) and daughter Deborah (Michael); brothers Edward, Albert (Brenda), and Jeffrey; sisters Kathy Dodson (Lee) and Karen Zimmermann; grandsons Weston and Dustin Dye; and numerous nieces and nephews.
He is preceded in death by his father Ruben Dye, mother Freda (Chastain) Dye; brothers Herbert and Ruben, Jr. Dye; grandson Scott Dye and granddaughter Amberly Dye.
A celebration of life will be planned for next spring. The last eight months of Neal’s life was spent in the loving care of his hospice nurses and CNAs. In remembrance of Neal, donations can be made to Sangre de Cristo Community Care, 1501 E. Main St., Trinidad, CO 81082 (719-846-3060)
Arrangements in care of Boies-Ortega Funeral Home.
