Neil was always so nice to me. He saved me from freezing more times than I want to admit when I went to the bus stop and forgot to check the news. He would open his window and tell me I could go home there was a delay or school was cancelled. How lucky I was to have him for a neighbor. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family, I am so incredibly sorry for your loss.

Having known Neil for 45+ years it was quite shocking to read of his passing. What a wonderful man. Always spoke if it was in the grocery store or on Cherry Hill where he loved to hunt or wherever it might be. He is going to be missed by all. May God bless you all.

Neil would tell my son Joey that he could tell when lunch was because I would bounce the basketball by his house heading home. I enjoyed talking to him at Hardee’s. He always had a smile and said hello to us. He was a wonderful person, and will be missed. My prayers to his family.
