  1. Neil was nice to the core. He was always in a good mood and always had an interesting story to tell. I really enjoyed talking to him at family gatherings, because he would teach me something with every conversation. I will miss him.

  4. Neil always came to Alberta to visit us and we spent a lot of great times with him and the last few years Neil and I spent many hours talking on Skype (computer). We will miss you Neil, know you are now in a better place, where you won’t have gout, other aches and pains, and you can still grow a good crop of soy beans. We will miss you. Lynne, Darlene and Cal, Darrin and Kathy, Andrea and Dan, Corinna and Dave, plus seven grandchildren.

  5. Neil was my next door neighbour when I was growing up on Essex St. He was a kind and caring man, eager to help, always with a smile and a story to tell. I have very fond memories of him.
