Richard M. ‘Dick’ Neville, 75, a longtime farrier who plied his trade for more than 60 years from Indiana to Ohio to Florida, passed away on Tuesday, March 24, 2020, at OSU Medical Center in Columbus due to kidney complications.

Born in Franklin, Ind., in 1944 to the late Carl K. and Alice (Fleener) Neville, Dick began shoeing his own ponies at the age of 14. He would go on to reach the pinnacle of his profession, as he worked with some of the greatest horses in harness racing, many of which are enshrined in the Hall of Fame.

Final funeral arrangements are still pending. A more complete obituary will be posted later.

Please join Standardbred Canada in offering condolences to the family and friends of Dick Neville.
