Kiwanis honors Neal Shull with car show

ANDERSON – Neal Shull was a painter by trade. But when Lou Rothstein hired him to paint her house in Pendleton, she didn’t realize she had found a friend for life.

“He was like my long-lost brother,” Rothstein said. “He became like family instantly. There are few people you can trust like you could trust Neal.”

That sums up the relationship Rothstein and others in the Pendleton community had with Shull, who was tragically shot and killed last July as a bystander to a domestic violence incident. Shull, who had been a self-employed painter for N S Painting and Pendleton Auto Restoration, was 48.

Rothstein’s experience with Shull is far from unique. “It’s amazing how many people Neal knew and how many lives he touched,” Kiwanis member Todd Hare said.

Along with his work and community involvement, Shull had a passion for cars that he pursued on the side. He owned a ’52 Chevy called “The Grey Goose,” which he painted blue with white flames in addition to pursuing several other car projects. His passion grew into a big dream, which was for the Kiwanis Club to create the biggest car show his community had ever seen.

Shull only got to see his dream become a reality once. Just weeks before Shull’s death, the club featured 96 participants in its first car show.

This year, Kiwanis is honoring Shull by holding the second Kiwanis Kar Show in his memory on July 13 at Falls Park in Pendleton.

“In keeping Neal’s dream alive, we are trying to make it the biggest car show the community has ever seen,” Hare said.

Years ago, the Pendleton Ambulance Department hosted a car show that the community embraced. When they stopped holding it, the local 4-H picked up the idea for a few years, but then it faded away again.
