He was a graduate of Central High School and received a bachelor’s degree in Communications from UTC.  As a student, he worked briefly at WDEF before going on to a career at Parker-Allison Co. in sales where his distinctive voice and larger than life personality distinguished him.

He is survived by his wife of 32 years, Debra Taylor Neyman, his mother, Mary Pleasant Neyman, and his sister, Susan (James) Hood, as well as several nieces, nephews and cousins.
