Mason Neeley Death, Obituary – On April 25, 2006, in Cincinnati, Ohio, Mason Neeley was born to parents Blake and Stacie. Mason, a native of Franklin County, Ohio, learned to fish and hunt with his father at a young age and, at the age of six, bagged his first deer. While Mason was a huge football fan, it was in the sport of wrestling that he truly excelled and where his tough, determined personality shone through. As Mason got older, he became notorious for getting into all sorts of trouble while performing dangerous feats on his dirt bike or quad. It was among his friends, whom he considered family, that he felt most at home.
There was no telling what kind of music he would play next; it might be hip hop, country, old school, or something else different altogether. Even though he couldn’t sing for to save his life, he nevertheless enjoyed singing his favorite tunes as he showered. Mason had an effervescent personality. Everyone he encountered fell in love with him almost instantly due to his wide grin and kind demeanor. With only his infectious grin and a bear embrace, he could brighten anyone’s day. He was always the first to help out a stranger, and he was a very watchful older sibling.
Mason was a bright spot in the lives of everyone who met him, even briefly. While he finally has his closure, the light he brought into the world will be gone forever. Mason leaves behind his parents, who he adored, his younger sister Avery whom he often referred to as his little prodigy, his maternal grandparents Lambert and Janet Ison, his paternal grandmother Virginia Neeley, and a slew of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. Mason is reunited in heaven with his ancestors: Bill and Jean Ison, and Carrie (Schalk) Roessler, Mason’s great-grandmother.
