Treasured great uncle and mentor to Cruz Reid. Survived by numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family.

Neil was a hardworking man whose knowledge and knowhow to problem solve and repair anything and everything knew no boundaries. He was a selfless man, who gave willingly of his time to anyone that needed a helping hand. He was a man of integrity, patience, wit, and humour will be greatly missed by family, friends, and neighbours.

As per Neil’s wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be no services.

The family would like to thank the entire staff of the Sault Area Hospital Cancer Clinic and radiation department and most especially the amazing Dr. Booth whose comfort, kindness and compassion got us through these last difficult months.
