Age 77 passed away peacefully surrounded by his family after a lengthy illness on Thursday March 10, 2022.

Doug was born March 29, 1944, in Everett to Charles W. and Alyce (Cassell) Neal. He graduated from Everett High School in 1961. He then graduated Boston University in 1965 and then attended Tufts University School of Dental Medicine from 1965-1969. Following dental school, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy and served two years at The Qounset Point Naval Base. This was followed by a two-year Periodontal Residency at Boston University School of Dental Medicine. On July 17, 1974, at 321 Lincoln Street in Manchester, NH he founded Bedford Commons Periodontics. It was only the third periodontal dental office to open in the entire state of New Hampshire.
He was an active member of The Manchester Dental Society, New Hampshire Dental Society, The American Academy of Periodontology, The Ancient Order of Hibernian’s and St. Elizabeth Seton Parish.
He is survived by his wife Joan Neal, three sons; Christopher(wife Angela) living in Tampa, Florida, Michael (wife Leah) living in Bedford, NH, Brian Hess (wife Tammy) living in Fort Mill, South Carolina and a daughter Karin Hess living in Manchester, NH. He is also survived by his only sister, Sandra Bridges (living in Pembroke). He also has seven grandchildren (Wanda, Amber, Aleyna, Katelyn, Emerson, Cylee and Cooper).
Doug enjoyed reading, gardening, a good joke, visiting the island of St. John, watching the Boston Bruins, Red Sox, New England Patriots and The Boston University Terriers Hockey games. Most of all he enjoyed spending every moment he could with his soul mate and best friend…his wife Joan.
