Neville Lokey, of Sugar Land, Texas, passed away on Friday, April 6, 2018 at the age of 91. Neville was born to parents Charles and Mildred Lokey on April 24, 1926 in Eagle Hall, St. Michael Barbados. He grew up as the oldest of three boys, Neville, Herman and Vere. His father departed this life when he was at a very tender age in his life. At a very young age, he had the responsibility of caring and providing for his younger siblings. Neville was the big brother that every sibling prayed for. He met his teenage sweetheart, Verena Payne, in 1947. At his death, Neville and Verena were married for sixty three years.

Together, they were blessed with two children, Michael and Hazel. In addition to being a good husband and an awesome dad, he was also an avid armchair sportsman with WWW wrestling, golf, tennis, basketball, soccer, football and cricket. He enjoyed playing and winning big at the penny slots at as many casinos as he could visit.

Neville worked for most of his life as a mechanic. He migrated to the United States and began a long career as a fireman with Sears and Roebuck until his retirement in 1988. His mantra throughout his life was ‘everything happens for a reason’. Neville leaves to cherish his life, love and everlasting memory: his wife Verena; his brothers Herman and Vere, Michael, Hazel, Nancy, Dave, Jonathan, Jessica, Sandra, Kelley, Antone and Anthony, six great grand children, and a host of relatives and friends. Neville is preceded in death by his parents, Charles and Mildred and by his great grandson Keyon.

Neville is in a better place. We will always love and remember him. We will especially remember how he touched the lives of so many people with his generosity, his dependability and his willingness to help.
