Ray Neveau

January 13, 1941 — October 31, 2021

Ray Neveau passed away in Oshkosh at Aurora Hospital surrounded by family on Sunday, October 31, 2021. He was born on January 13, 1941, in Niagara, WI to Arnold and Jennie Neveau and was raised by Phil and Stella Meyers. He was married to Sharon Neveau (Murray), the love of his life, for 60 years. Ray grew up in Niagara, WI. He was a graduate of Niagara High School and UW-Oshkosh where he received a bachelor's degree in business.

Ray displayed a deep love and devotion to his family. He shared in the respective activities of his sons with great joy. With Brian, this meant being his greatest supporter in whatever sport he was competing in at the time. With Greg, this meant snowmobiling, boating, and working on numerous household projects. Moreover, Ray appreciated the addition of two daughters-in-law, Meghan and Deb, to his family. The love he showed to his children also extended to his grandchildren - Nathan (Ashlyn), Erin (Josh Hassman), Luke, Lauren (Jacob Derenne) and Libby. He lived and loved to support them in their endeavors.

Throughout Ray’s lifetime, he developed many lifelong friendships with teammates from Tommy’s Angels, softball players throughout the softball community, handball players around the country, and customers and coworkers - who Ray saw as much more than that - while he worked at Cryovac. His charismatic laugh, good-humored jokes and genuine love for others enriched the lives of all who knew him. In addition to the relationships that sports provided, Ray achieved numerous athletic accomplishments. Here listed are a few of his notable achievements: a three-time National Handball champion, an All World Softball player, and a member of the UW-Oshkosh Athletic Hall of Fame.

Ray’s survivors include his wife, children, grandchildren, sisters Rosemary and Debbie, his brothers Phillip and Fred, and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and special friends. Ray's final resting place is Lake View Memorial Park. Though we will miss him dearly, we hope in an eternal reunion when the Lord Jesus gathers all his saints into his heavenly kingdom.

The Mass of Christian Burial for Ray will be held at 12 PM at St. Raphael’s Catholic Church, 830 S Westhaven Dr. in Oshkosh on Thursday, November 4th. A visitation will be held from 9 AM until the time of service. In lieu of flowers, a memorial in Ray’s name has been established. Entombment will be at Lake View Memorial Park following the service.

The family is grateful for the care that Ray received from the amazing nursing staff at Aurora.
