Tribute

Neal Malcolm McWhirt was born on January 23, 1950, and died on October 19, 2023.

Neal is survived by the love of his life, his wife, Cindy; adored daughter Lindy Lynn and her husband Carl; and precious granddaughters Eleanor and Abigail. He is also survived by his brother, Carlyle McWhirt; and two sisters Theresa Hutton and Susan Rodgers (Greg). His son, Brian, was always in his heart.

Neal loved his in-laws, Edward and Virginia Hayden (Papa and Gran), and his brother and sister-in-laws. He especially enjoyed having fun with his nieces and nephews.

Neal retired from the FBI Academy, Quantico, Virginia in January 2010 after 28 years of service. He formerly worked at Silvey Chevrolet in Fredericksburg, Virginia.

Neal was an avid hunter and fisherman and was happiest when he was in the woods or on a boat enjoying God’s gifts in nature. Neal spent countless hours looking for a big buck or the perfectly bearded gobbler. He enjoyed cutting wood, gathering piles for his own family’s woodstove and sharing truckloads of split wood to help care for friends. Neal and Cindy loved to dance and met many lifetime friends attending beach music concerts or going to local lodge dances. Neal was known to enjoy a good meal, always pursuing the perfect seafood dinner.

He lived in the area his entire life and was very proud of his heritage in both Stafford and Spotsylvania counties.

A Celebration of Life will take place at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, October 24, 2023, at Salem Baptist Church. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at the church. Interment will follow in the church cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Neal’s memory can be made to Salem’s food pantry.
