Neil was incredibly great and always professional to work with! I worked with him at Marcomhq and in the FCC in Halifax. A few very grateful memories come to mind - whenever that computer or fax machine or the clunker of a photocopier machine broke down, Neil would always be available to fix it for me or for anyone. Neil, without a doubt, was always looking to help out. At the FCC, he was the best as he would always be super early for shiftwork change. Anyone that has experience of shift-work will surely understand the joy of having Neil arrive as early as 6 am for the 7:30 am shift change, it was a joy! When we working the same shift, Neil and I would carpool. He loved to chat about his family - it was heartwarming to hear him talk so kindly of his family members. His daughter married a long-time family friend, Glen - I had grown up with and I truly love his family too; so for these reasons I have always adored and really liked Neil. During those days, he was like a father to me too. You will be remembered for giving such a good work ethic example. Rest in Peace, my friend.

My condolences to the family. I just heard of Neil’s passing. I worked with Neil in Debert in the early70s and dealt with him later when installing IDN in Halifax. He was a kind and gentle man and I always loved listening to his stories. I’m sure he and his old friend Andy MacIntyre will be telling some good ones. RIP Neil, You will be missed. Frank Arsenault

It was my pleasure to serve with Neil in Debert in the 79/80

Many years later I met him again in Parkland Halifax where he was in the room across from my Mom. We recognized each other in the hall and got to talk every second day or so until late Dec 2019.

Lots of memories, lots of talk, he was a great man.

My condolences to the family

Rest In Peace Neil you certainly earned it, remembering the good times in Debert, and by the way don’t forget to ‘degause” before entering paradise. Again Rest In Peace Neil.

Neil was a great guy and a diehard RCAF veteran. He never got tired talking about his military experiences. I enjoyed many shifts with him at Commfac Halifax and a few visits at Parkland also. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
