Neil Donnelly, 77, of Leonardo, passed away peacefully at his home on Sunday, Aug. 17, 2014. Neil was born on April 25, 1937 in Brooklyn, NY. After attending high school, he enlisted in the United States Airforce where he left Honorably Discharged. When he returned back to Brooklyn, he met his wife Concetta and that's where they raised their family. Neil was NYC Firefighter for 30 years. He is predeceased by his parents, Anna and Neil Donnelly and his sisters, Patricia Cuomo and Eileen Aracri. Neil is the beloved husband of his wife Concetta for 50 wonderful years. He was the devoted father of Kathleen Donnelly of Atlantic Highlands and Neil Donnelly of Middletown. Neil was the loving brother of Daniel and his sister, Carol. He is survived by his granddaughter, Rachel Norcross. Neil was a very strong-willed but generous man who loved his family, but it was his granddaughter Rachel who truly was the light of his life, and there was nothing he would not do for her. Neil loved all animals and especially dogs and cats.
