Funeral services for Larry “Snuff” Neal will be held Tuesday, June 20th at the New Tabernacle Baptist Church.

Neal died Thursday after a brief illness.

The memorial service will be held at 6 p.m. at Tabernacle with Robert Allen Tanzy, Sr. officiating.
Neal was a member of the church brotherhood.

In the late 1960’s he was a participant in the civil rights rallies that resulted in the full integration of the Monroe Civic Center and other public accommodations in the city.


He was arrested several times for his participation in the activities, including an arrest for trying to integrate an “Honor America” celebration hosted by the City at the Monroe Civic Center in 1970.
