Tribute

Neil Eugene Brogan was called home October 17, 2021 at age 87. Neil was born on June 14, 1934 to Cecil and Ruby Brogan in a farmhouse in E. Rochester, Ohio. In his early years, Neil was raised on a farm in Minerva, Ohio. He attended Ohio Northern University, and also served in the United States Army. Neil met his wife Shirley in 1956, they married November 1, 1958 and had three beautiful daughters. Neil retired after 40 years from United Airlines. He then spent many more years working for the city of Columbus, specifically Raymond Golf Course. Neil was a 32nd degree Mason as well as past Master of Lodge 0408, of which he was very proud.  He was also a member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles 3261. Neil was an avid golfer, and loved to travel.  His biggest enjoyment was being with his wife and family.  He was loving, kind, compassionate and a true gentleman. He was a man of few words, but spoke many words of wisdom. Our family circle is now forever broken; Dad was our main link. We were truly blessed to have had so many years with him, for that we are all grateful. Dad spent many years battling Leukemia and Lymphoma and when you saw him you’d never know it, he was a pillar of strength and dignity. Neil is survived by his best friend, confidant and loving wife Shirley of 63 years; daughters, Sherri Brogan (Diana Ansel), Deanna (Sam) Pegg, Kelly (Ryan) Daugherty. Also his pride and joy his grandchildren, Elaina (Danny) Thorla, Blake Allen, Erica (Trae) Myers, and Vinnie Allen; also surviving, great-granddaughter, Hayden Myers and soon to be second great granddaughter, Baby Thorla.
