Neil was born on a dairy farm near Asquith, SK and went to school in Asquith. He loved playing hockey in those years and made life-long friends there. Neil was a diehard hockey fan, a true lover of the game, especially the Montreal Canadians. He most enjoyed camping, preferably deep in the bush with a canoe, good gear and good friends. Second choice would be a motor cycle and a back pack. Neil liked to laugh, and he liked to get a laugh. He could go a very long way on just one line. Neil went into Wholesale Floor Covering in 1978. He worked in the warehouse and moved into middle management at W.G. McMahon in Saskatoon and Edmonton. In 1992 he began working at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in the custodial department until 2011 when he had to stop work due to illness. He succumbed to complications from cancer. A kind and gentle soul that left us too soon. Memorial donations may be made in his memory to Nature Conservancy of Canada at www.natureconservancy.ca. A Memorial Service will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 6th at Windsor Chapel (704 Windsor St). Arrangements are in care of John Schachtel - MOURNING GLORY FUNERAL SERVICES (306) 978-5200.
