Dr. John Michael Neuerburg past away on August 23, 2015 while fishing with his son in Surfside Beach, Texas.  He graduated TCC in 1980. Memorial services will be held at the Freeport Community House, located at 1300 West Second Street in Freeport, Texas at 6:30 PM on Friday August 28th. A celebration of his life will follow in the same location. Beer, tea, and finger foods will be served. BYOB.

Born to the late Leonard and Louise Neuerburg on August 13, 1952 in Freeport, Texas, John grew up in Baytown and Freeport, and graduated from Brazosport High School in 1970. Two years later, he wed his high school sweetheart, the late Gail Neuerburg. They were married for over 40 years.

John graduated from Lamar University in 1976 where he played baseball, a sport he loved and shared with his children. Soon after, he started his own company, J&G Electric, where he worked as an electrician while he attended Texas Chiropractic College. He graduated in 1980.

Together with his wife Gail, John opened his first practice of chiropractic in 1981 in Atascosita, Texas. They later moved his practice to Lake Jackson in 1986 to be closer to family where he worked until the day he died. His son, Chris Neuerburg will continue the practice.

John loved hunting, fishing, and telling stories about the good ol’ baseball days. He lived by his motto, “The most important thing in life is to be happy.” He loved helping people through his practice, and his jovial, easy going character was loved by many in the community. 

He is survived by his two children, Chris and Nicole, sisters Jean Carrell, Lois Horton, and brother Leonard Neuerburg. He has two grandsons, Gus and Hank.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Boys & Girls Club of Brazoria County, an organization his father helped found in 1972.
