August 29, 1993

George Frederick Neeb, a retired Baltimore County police lieutenant who served in the department for 40 years, died Friday at Fallston Hospital of a heart attack.

He was 83.

A resident of Harford County since the mid-1970s, Mr. Neeb was working in the police department's quartermaster's division in Towson when he retired in 1979.

L He joined the department in 1939 as a patrolman in Woodlawn.

He was transferred to Wilkens Station in Catonsville, where he advanced to sergeant, then lieutenant.

From 1930 to 1939 he worked for the C. Neeb Family Plumbing and Heating Business, run by his older brother.

The business closed in the 1940s.

As a young man, Mr. Neeb studied drafting at the old Maryland Institute.

Although he never formally pursued architecture, he used his training occasionally in drawing blueprints for relatives and friends who were contractors.

Mr. Neeb was a member of the Maryland Law Enforcement Officers Association and the Association of Baltimore County Retired Police Inc. He also was a member of Bel Air United Methodist Church.

Mr. Neeb and his wife, the former Eula Farmer, traveled often, including trips to Florida, Canada and Maine. In the early 1960s they toured the United States by car.

He also grew vegetables and tended a rose garden at his home in Bel Air and before that at his home in Woodlawn.

Services will be held at 10 a.m. tomorrow at the Loring Byers Funeral Home, 8728 Liberty Road.

In addition to his wife, whom he married in 1932, Mr. Neeb is survived by a daughter, Gloria A. Benson of Bel Air; a son, George Frederick III of Perry Hall; seven grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.
