    I’m so sorry to hear of his passing. My father, Grady Fletcher, is his cousin–but considers O’Neal like a brother. Everyone trusted their car repairs to O’Neal and my dad loved talking about cars with him…so much history. He will be missed. Our thoughts are with the family. Rest in peace O’Neal.

    Pop was a good man. He would always take the time to sit down and talk. Smart man, you will always remain a friend in my heart. God bless you Pop, rest in peace with our Lord.

    I loved visiting with Pop when I had my personal and business trucks serviced at his business. There was never a doubt that we’d be treated right and priced fairly for the service. He was quite the character too.
    I’d go to drop a truck, and Pop and I would wind up chatting for sometimes half an hour. He certainly knew his business, and he had a great sense of humor too.
    We’d get to laughing and Greg would come in wondering what the two of us were carrying on about.. and we’d get him laughing too. I’ll miss him. He was always a joy to be with.
