He was the beloved husband of Mary A. (Walakovits) Neupauer to whom he was married for 55 beautiful years. They would have celebrated their 56th wedding anniversary this August 22nd.

He served honorably as a Staff Sergeant in the United States Air Force during the Korean War.

He received a Bachelor of Science degree from Moravian College in 1962 and a Master in Education from Lehigh University in 1968.

He was a faithful parishioner, lector, and Eucharistic minister at St. Peter Roman Catholic Church of Coplay, and a member and past President of the Holy Name Society.
