Neil was born in the City of Orange, Orange County, California, May 9th, 1971, to Harry G Walters and Barbara Spencer. He lived in California until he was 4 years old, then moved to Creston, Iowa. He grew up loving the outdoors, and just being a boy. One thing he didn’t like was snow. When he first saw it, he called it “white dirt”.
He was educated at Creston community schools, graduating in 1989. He worked as a cable installer for independent contractors in many states, also for Northrup Collins in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The last few years he worked for Gits Manufacturing and Wellman's as an x-ray technician. During his free time, Neil enjoyed being outdoors; fishing, golfing, sitting around a fire, listening to music and being around friends and family.
Neil leaves three sons: Harry, Haydn, and Noble Walters; his mother and stepfather, Barbara and Gary Spencer; stepmother Jennifer Walters; two sisters: Karie Walters and Jennifer Menzner (Jonathan Menzner); two half siblings: Chancy Walters (Jess Johnston) and Haylee Alley (Nick); three stepbrothers: Bryan Spencer (Kathy O'Neill), Tom Spencer (Jessica) and Randy Spencer (Vanissa); several nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles and cousins.
