Please share a memory of Neal to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Neal Bradley Clack, born on February 5th, 1964 to the late Walter Harold Clack and Annie Lois Clack in Roxboro, NC, passed away November 23, 2023. In addition to his parents, he is also pre-deceased by his brother, Kurt Craig Clack, and his Mother-In-Law, Nancy Walker. Neal graduated from Person High School in 1982 and attended ECU. He owned Clack's Home Improvement based in Caldwell.

Neal loved hunting turkey and deer, fishing, history and wood working, most anything using his hands. He had hoped to one day gain his health so he might be able to join the Caldwell Hunting Club Wounded Warrior turkey and deer hunts. He loved turning wood and creating from Civil War Era Officer's chairs and lanterns to an Ash coat rack he made for Bette for their anniversary.

His love of history led him to join the 1st NC Regiment reactivated and then the 26th NC Regiment reactivated. He also served in the NC Battalion. This took him on many trips from Pennsylvania to GA where he was able to share his love of history by participating in reenacting battles and teaching at Living History events. He was able to sew his own uniforms & kepis. He built lanterns and officer chairs from this era as well. He was known for his craftsmanship with the chairs he created.

Neal and Bette met in 2004 and he gained a daughter in the process. They moved out to her parents' farm a year later and the country boy came out in him. He loved growing a garden every year and being outside, watching wildlife and making new friends. Married in 2008, they celebrated their 15th anniversary this year.

Neal is survived by his wife, Bette, his daughters, Jamie Lee Jeffries Walker (Heather), Jessica Clack Dew (Dustin), son Justin Bradley Clack. Grandchildren Tanner, Logan, Mason and Ava Dew. His brother, Rodney Jay Clack and his children, Donald Taylor Clack and Jennifer Leigh Clack, and his Father-In-Law, Bryant Walker. He is also survived by his beloved Bailey, who brought so much joy to his life.
