Obituary

Carl Donald Neuzil was born on January 16, 1955 in Iowa City, Iowa and passed away on September 7, 2021 surrounded by his family.

Carl was raised in a humble farming family where he learned the value of hard work, persistence, and self belief. These values served as a driving force throughout his life and, along with his strong conservative values, led to a successful business career.

Carl grew up watching airplanes on the farm, inspiring a lifelong love of aviation. He became a pilot in 1979 and continued flying throughout his life. His 50+ years of flying kindled a desire to mentor others, and Carl served in many leadership positions with non-profits to encourage youth. In addition to aviation, he greatly enjoyed antique cars, motorcycles, guns, hunting, camping, and all types of outdoor activities.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Paul and JoAnne Neuzil, his infant sister, Mary Jo, and his father in law, Curtis Lindell. He is survived by his wife Darci Neuzil; children Nicole Neuzil, Keaton Dunker, Carley Neuzil (Mike), and Kelsey Lopez (William); siblings Harold Neuzil , James Neuzil, Catherine Kilbane, John Neuzil, Paula Piper, Amie Rockafellow, Eddie Neuzil, Anthony Neuzil, numerous nieces and nephews, mother in law, Jean Lindell; and his faithful and loyal dog, Max.

Carl was an outgoing, good natured person that never met a stranger. But to those that were closest to him, he will always be remembered for his sense of humor, character, strength, courage, compassion, gentle kindness, and devotion to his family.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date.

Today the blue skies and the open roads are his.

    Carl and I the older him next,always together. We were always put together as alter boys, same size and blond. As on the alter worked together on most everything. We seen most things the same, but respected when not. The miles apart didn’t matter, we still talked and loved each other. Carl, I miss you! Love always Harold

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
