Neil passed away unexpectedly on Sunday 24 July at Wellington Hospital.
Neil was the much loved Dad of Max, and cherished eldest son of Colleen and Russell (deceased) who were so proud of their boy. Adored brother and brother in law to Evan and Laurel, and Miranda and Danny. Cool and fun loving uncle to Matthew, James, Ella and Erin.

We would love and encourage you to leave your stories and tributes here on this Tribute page, as your words will be a special keepsake for Max and the family.
