Obituary: Matthew Neal

January 16, 1975 – March 21, 2020

Matthew Neal, 45, beloved son of Marti and Kenny Terry, passed away peacefully Saturday morning, March 21, in the loving arms of his mother and father.  

Matthew was born on January 16, 1975.  He was a resident of Garden Villa in Bedford, Indiana, for thirty years where he was loved and cared for by many special nurses, CNAs, and respiratory therapists.

Matthew was an inspiration to everyone who would accept them into their lives with his disabilities.  He couldn’t move his arms or legs, but he could move hearts with his infectious smile. He never felt hate for anyone – only love.  He couldn’t speak a word, but he could reach your soul through his beautiful green eyes.  

Matthew is survived by his mother and father, Marti and Kenny Terry, as well as many uncles, aunts, and cousins. 

He is preceded in death by his grandmother and grandfather, Hazel and Ruel Terrell.

Private family visitation will be at Cresthaven Funeral Home and Memory
Gardens on Wednesday, March 25th, with a graveside service following.
