I was supprised and sorry to read of Neils passing. I worked for many years with Neil In the drafting department before I transferd to the Armoured Veicle product in a different building. We had a great group guys in drafting through the 70’s and early 80’s. Hard work at times but we had fun as well with after hours Baseball, some Hockey and bowling.
I remember Neil had a quiet sense of humour, you always had to be on your guard with Neil for you were never sure if he was putting you on or not.
I am sure he will be dearly missed by his family to whom I sincerly send my Condolences

Sincere condolences to Sharon and family. I have fond memories of Neil when we served together on the Unity of London Board. We also attended a Board retreat/training together at Unity Village. I also have fond memories of Neil from our social outings with other friends from Unity. I appreciated his quiet, laid back style, and thoughtfulness, along with his wry sense of humour. Neil continues in a new phase of his spiritual journey.
