John Neale was born in Bristol, England in 1965. He read mathematics at Jesus College, Cambridge, and later studied singing at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. He lived in Germany with his wife Julia Thornton, and sons Christopher and Nicholas, where he worked as a free-lance opera singer, and also as a database and website designer. He was the author of Musicbox, a music utility for the Psion 3a.

He had Type 1 diabetes since he was 11 years old, and used an insulin pump since 1998.

He set up Insulin Pumpers UK in 1999, as an offshoot of the US-based Insulin Pumpers charity. He maintained its website and, along with Diana Maynard , administered the Insulin Pumpers UK discussion group.

Sadly, John lost a long battle with brain cancer and died on 29 November, 2006.
