Neil MacNeil

August 3, 1945 – March 17, 2015

It’s with great sadness, we regret to announce the sudden passing of Neil MacNeil.

Born to Roderick and Ethel MacNeil in Vancouver B.C. Predeceased by both his parents and his youngest sister Ann MacNeil.

Neil will be lovingly remembered and greatly missed by his three sons: Rod (Mary), Randy and Ryan; two brothers: Sandy (Debbie) & Johnny (Marilyn); two sisters: Shelly & Cathy, two granddaughters, five great grandchildren, many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and many cousins.

Neil made his home in Barriere, B.C. for the past approximately 10 years. He loved country life. He was a man of simple means, very unpretentious and humble.

Neil’s favourite pastimes were camping and gold panning every summer with his oldest son, Rod. They never hit the mother load but had a good time trying. All of Neil’s gold was in his heart.

The family wish to express their gratitude for everyone’s kind words, it’s of great comfort in this very difficult time.

There will be a celebration of Neil’s life at a later date.
