Neil and I was in a carpool to work during 1970's. He always had a smile and a joke during the drive. Sorry for your loss.

I was so sorry to hear of the passing of my wonderful Uncle Neil. He was pretty much the rock of the family and was always there for anyone who needed help, especially my mom and dad. And I know how much he was loved by everyone whose path he crossed. He raised a wonderful family and had a great life with them all. He will be missed immensely.
