Neal Lewis Rutan of Akron, formerly of Manchester, passed away suddenly March 29, 2021.
Neal graduated from Manchester High School in 2002. He was a loving father to his only daughter, Nyra. She was his world and nothing meant more to him than spending time with her. He also adored his parents Roy and Dayna. Neal loved his brother and sister-in-law but there was nothing he enjoyed more than laughing and playing with his niece and nephews. Neal's infectious laugh was best heard when with his cousins. Neal was an avid Horror and Sci-Fi fan. He could walk you through all aspects of the Marvel and DC Universes and could give insight from one release to the next. Going to the movies was one of his favorite pastimes.
Preceded in death by his brother, Roy Jr on Dec of 1996; he is survived by his daughter, Nyra; parents, Roy and Dayna; brother, Devan (Lauren); niece, Ava; nephews, Jack, Hudson, Graham, and another nephew on the way. In addition, he will be greatly missed by many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
There will be a private celebration of life at a future date to be determined.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Neal's honor to the
Ohio Valley Adult & Teen Challenge organization at 1319 Florencedale Ave Youngstown, OH 44505.
