He was an avid sports fan, who provided a wealth of knowledge in many sports. He provided endless discussions and insights into the sporting world. Neil was a terrific pool player and golfer, with a knack of making the toughest shots look easy. He was an active and devoted man of the Catholic Church, as well as a loyal and kind man. His sense of humour was appreciated by many. He was a true and witty man, and a man of his word. His presence and honesty will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
