Obituary for Michael Bryan Neal

Michael Bryan Neal – November 30, 1944 – October 16, 2019

Michael Bryan Neal, 74, of Los Angles, California, passed away in his sleep, Wednesday, October 16, 2019 at his home surrounded by family.

A celebration of life mass will be held at 12:30 PM, Saturday, October 26 in the Chapel of the Risen Christ at Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery, 5835 W Slauson Ave, Culver City, CA 90230. His entombment will follow soon after in the Chapel of the Risen Christ Mausoleum.

Michael was born November 30, 1944 in New York City, New York to Genevieve and Kenneth Neal. He graduated from Hollywood High School in 1961 and later formed the World Peace band with the Seeds frontrunner Sky Saxon. Michael was a popular disc jockey working with Boss Radio DJ Humble Harve Miller. In 1976 Michael married Nancy Trerotola at the Self Realization Fellowship Hollywood Temple. He was employed as a musician for forty years, and was one of the region’s early participants in the flower power movement. After separating from his wife in 1981, he opened the Mike Neal rehearsal studio and became a social activist for both human and animal rights. Michael received a Radio Broadcasting Degree in 1986 and a Legal Assistant Paralegal Degree in 1988 from Los Angeles City College. He enjoyed working night and day in his studio, and only retired a few years prior to his passing. He was an avid singer and songwriter and a passionate Vegetarian since his teenage years. He spent most of his weekends writing or playing music. He also enjoyed watching sports, playing with his dogs, and spending time with his children and grandchildren whenever he could.

Michael is survived by his two sons, Christopher Michael Neal and Bryan Sanden Neal and his wife Rebecca Zoe Neal, and his daughter Jennifer Javadi and her husband Omid Javadi; two grandchildren, Cyrus Javadi and Savannah Javadi, his two half-brothers, Larry Neal and Mark Neal, and his half-sister Vicki Rubenstein of New York City, New York, along with several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his half-sister Donna Hurst, his half-brother David Neal, his sister Cathy Neal, and his eldest son, Aaron Spelbring, who passed away on January 8, 2014.
