Ervin Robert Neatherlin Jr.
Ervin Robert Neatherlin Jr., born on Sept. 15, 1929, in San Antonio, Texas, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, May 20, 2012.
Ervin was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, and a staunch Republican who has been disappointed for the last four years.

Ervin lived a long and fulfilling life. His storytelling will be fondly remembered, said his family.
