ELMORE - Richard H. Neeb, 81, the retired owner of a Pontiac dealership founded by his father and a former member of Village Council here, died Wednesday in Hospice of Northwest Ohio, Perrysburg Township.

He had heart problems for more than a decade, his wife, Dolores, said.
Mr. Neeb worked more than 40 years at Neeb Motor Sales and owned the business from the late 1970s until he retired and closed the dealership in 1985.
His favorite parts of the business were working on cars and talking with people, his wife said.
"A lot of people knew him, and he was easy to talk to," his wife said."He was a happy person."
He first worked at the dealership during high school.He learned auto repair and how to be a mechanic from his father, Howard.The elder Mr. Neeb had gotten his start repairing Model Ts in Lindsey, Ohio, and was one of the first Pontiac dealers in northwest Ohio when he began to sell the new 1927 models in late 1926.
Mr. Neeb, with his background, became a mechanic in the Army Air Corps during World War II, when he was stationed in Egypt.
Afterward, he was a mechanic for Neeb Motor Sales, and he also sold cars.He became owner when his father died in the late 1970s.
The dealership did repair work on the village's vehicles, and he heard about the workings of local government from town employees.
Born in Lindsey, Mr. Neeb grew up in Elmore and was a graduate of the former Harris-Elmore High School.
He was a member of the American Legion Post in Elmore.
He was a member of St. John's United Church of Christ, Elmore, where he'd been a council member.
Mr. Neeb's hallmark was his sense of humor.
"He was pretty sharp and he could make people laugh right up almost to the end," his wife said.
