Clifford Joe Neeley, 59, of Baker City, died Jan. 3, 2005, at his home.
His private memorial service was Tuesday at Coles Funeral Home.
Joe was born on Dec. 30, 1945, at Nashville, Tenn., to Clifford Wallace and Frances A. Regg Neeley. He attended school at Nashville and later moved to Washington where he completed his education.
He trained to be a mechanic and worked at various jobs throughout the Northwest. In 2001, he moved to Baker City to be near his daughter. He thoroughly enjoyed living in the community.
He was a genius at fixing anything and often the more challenging the project, the more creative he became. He loved the outdoors and enjoyed hunting and fishing.
Survivors include his children, Jenny Davis of Paulden, Ariz., Daniel Neeley and Erin Neeley of Indianapolis, Ind.; three grandchildren, Morgan Davis, Christina Davis and A.R. Davis of Haines; his mother and two sisters, who live at Nashville; and several nieces and nephews.
