Obituary

Neal Berwick, 38, of Aurora CO passed away in his home on May 8, 2020. Neal was born July 10, 1981 in
Rochester, NY to parents Martin and Kathleen (Neville) Berwick. Born with only one arm, friends and
family often forgot that fact because he was physically capable of so many things, although in his most
vulnerable moments he hinted that the disability did significantly impact him. Growing up in Kendall, NY,
Neal was an active Boy Scout who enjoyed spending his summers working the waterfront at Camp
Dittmer. He graduated with a Bachelor’s of Arts in Philosophy from Middlebury College in Vermont after
spending a study abroad semester in Harbin China. After some difficult years following his parents’
deaths (mother in 2003 and father in 2008), he committed to his sobriety with the help of Alcoholic
Anonymous – reaching 10 years sober several months before his death. Neal enjoyed playing tennis,
and was an avid water and snow skier. His love of downhill skiing directed some of his life decisions
including working at Mad River Glen and more recently moving to Colorado to be close to mountain
terrain and fresh powder. He was a generous person often helping those he cared about. Neal will be
missed by his brother Dan, sister-in-law Darcy, his niece Abby and nephew Griffin. He will also be
lovingly remembered by his aunts and uncles Hannah, Paul, Noreen, Peter, Sandy, Marilyn, and Chris as
well as his cousins Kevin, Brett, Colleen, Katherine, Jacqueline, Brendan, Jennifer, and Zach. A memorial
service will be scheduled once the impacts of the pandemic have lessened. Please visit Neal's memorial page at ApolloFunerals.com

Lynne Hammel Neal was a delight in my First Grade classroom. He was a friend to many because he was such a good friend. Humorous, warm-hearted, helpful, kind and eager to learn surely describe Neal. All of your family are well remembered for their kindnesses and helping ways. Family was so important to them. Dan, you were an eager learner and always respectful and responsible in my First Grade classroom as well! I am sorry for your loss of a wonderful brother, and hold you in my thoughts and prayers. "Some people make others happy by simply being who they are." These words surely relate to Neal and you, Dan, and your parents as well! Blessings....and lots of them!

Neal was one of my favorite Scouts. He was one of the greatest kids to be around. Condolences to his family. I am sure he will be missed.

Neal was one of “my boys”. He was part of the group of boys I transported to the park, to events and to the neighborhood baseball card store. Tyler was talking about all the afternoons we spent looking over baseball cards just the other day. Lynch’s baseball card store. I will never forget a birthday party held at our house whereby one boy asked Neal about his missing arm while I was cutting cake. There was a short silence when another spoke up saying “hey, we all have things we don’t like about ourselves...like I have braces and Tyler has red hair”. That summed up how everyone felt about Neal’s missing arm. He was so capable that no one even noticed it was missing.
Neal was a friend to all and had understanding beyond many. My heart is sad to know Neal has left this world. God bless.

You always inspired me Neal. Your outlook was unique. Even at your young age, you lifted my spirits that night in 1998. You, Jay, and Ginger saved my summer. Rest now old friend until we sing again at that campfire in Heaven.
