It is with great sadness that we share the passing of Neill, a retired IBM'er, at Ross Memorial Hospital, Lindsay Ontario in his 89th year.
Happily married to Freda (nee Rollins) for 63 years. Father of Helen (Bruce), Brian, and Gord.
Grandfather to Brianne, Shannon, Alex, and Marissa. Pre-deceased by his brothers George, David, 'Brien, and Allen. Neill will be remembered for his passion for a few things, IBM, a fiesty argument, golf and soccer or maybe just all things sports. It was a common thing when Brian and Gord were young to see Neill following the soccer play by jogging up and down the sidelines.
While sports was a passion the true love of his life was his wife Freda. They were teenagers when they met in home town Bangor Northern Ireland through their common church home.
They married in 1954 and embarked on a life of adventure by moving to Canada far from family.
The family would like to thank the congregation and staff at Cambridge Street United Church, who through their words and actions are the embodiment of kindness and care, also the staff at Ross Memorial Hospital who were so attentive in their care of our father but also their focus on our mother during this time.
Visitation will be from 10:30 until time of Celebration of Life at 12:00 at Cambridge Street United Church, 61 Cambridge St. N. Lindsay, Ontario (705-324-3547) on Saturday January 13, 2018.
If desired memorial donations in lieu of flowers to Cambridge Street United Church or Ross Memorial Hospital.
