Mr. Keith Neely, age: 56 Of: Waverly, TN Died: Wednesday, September 23, 2020 after a long illness at Alive Hospice in Nashville, TN. He was born January 21, 1964 in Dickson, TN and was the beloved son of John and Judy Sujdak of Waverly and the late Jim Neely of Salisbury, NC. He attended Waverly Central High School until transferring to South Rowan High School in China Grove, NC where he graduated in 1982. Keith spent his life between Waverly and Salisbury, NC. He really enjoyed the outdoors, swimming, hunting, driving a four-wheeler, hunting for arrowheads and artifacts, and hanging at the beach in North Carolina. During his working life, Keith was Production Manager at NECO, Inc. in Salisbury, NC, and a Machinist at Lane Punch in Salisbury. When he returned to Tennessee, he worked in the construction industry as a carpenter and electrician, and the last 15 years in landscaping. Keith loved the Lord, his extended family and a great host of friends. He was fierce, loyal and always gave a helping hand to friends and strangers alike. His presence will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him. To honor Keith, the family is asking those who wish to, write down their favorite memory of Keith and give them to John and Judy, or mail them, to be shared with all his loved ones.
