Amos ‘Buck’ Neff, age 78, of Barry, IL passed away on Thursday, October 7, 2021 at Blessing Hospital in Quincy, IL. He was born on December 30, 1942 in Plainville, IL to Andrew and Georgia (Brinkman) Neff. He married Carol Hoyt on February 14, 1964 at the Barry Methodist Church and she survives.

He graduated from Payson High School in 1961 and joined the National Guard.

My deepest sympathies to all of you at this difficult time. During my time as Buck’s home care aide, we formed a great friendship and I was so fond of him and Carol. My heart goes out to her and I will be praying for her.
