Neal R. Hammond Everett, 15
He was born May 17, 1997, at UPMC Bedford Memorial Hospital, a son of Scott Alan Hammond and Geor- gina Renee (Messinger) Hammond of Everett.
In addition to his parents, he is survived by two sisters: Paige Hammond, her daughters Braylin and Brynn, of Everett and Meghan Hammond, of Everett; maternal grandmother Mary (Rotz) Messinger of Harrisonville; paternal grandparents Frank and Rose (Doyle) Hammond, of Everett; paternal great-grandmother Roberta Graham, of Everett; his aunt, Melinda (Hammond) Horne and husband Earl Horne Jr., of Bedford, and uncle George Messinger Jr. and wife Michelle of Harrisonville; and many more loving family members and friends.
He was preceded in passing by his grandfather, George Messinger Sr.
He was a member of First Christian Church of Everett and a member of the church’s youth group. He was a student at Everett Area High School, Class of 2015, studying under the University Prep Program and was a member of the junior high football team, playing wide receiver and defensive back. He was also a letterman for the 2011-2012 varsity wrestling team and was an avid San Diego Chargers and Iowa Hawkeyes fan.
He was a kind young man who liked everyone he met. He truly enjoyed being an uncle, spending time with his two nieces and always enjoyed spending time with his friends working out, lifting weights or just hanging out together, maybe just playing X-Box. He loved the outdoors, was a novice fisherman and will be greatly missed for his caring and happy-go-lucky ways.
Funeral services were held Wednesday, July 25, 2012, at 1 p.m. at First Christian Church of Everett. Rev. Robert R. Robertson officiated.
