Neil had a generous nature and enjoyed helping his family and friends in any way he could. He was always quick to offer a hand at whatever needed doing. He was a funny guy, quick with a joke and fun-loving ways! I'll always remember Neil as a kind and helpful brother-in-law to me. May he rest in peace.

Neil was certainly a funny guy with a quick wit. He was also very knowledgeable in many subjects which made him a great conversationalist. I always felt welcomed and at home when visiting Neil's home. Rest in peace Neil.

I can only bet Neil is trying to find a way in catching a Giant Bass in his path beyond. I have endless memories of all the eel fishing along the Brandywine River or midnight pond hopping for the big a lunker.
Not forgetting all the fun things I can’t mention but remembering also his house was open for fun or times of need.

No rest now. Get Fishing Old Man

Thanks Neil

My deepest condolences, sending Love and Prayers to his family and friends! As a member of the Little League World Series Team from back in 1967 all I have is fond memories of all the times Neil either won a game with his bat, like the final regional game to get us to the World Series, or his excellent pitching! Would not have made it without him!! What a fun time and experience, thanks Neil, 'til we meet again!
