Peacefully on Tuesday, November 13, 2012. Much loved husband to Denyse; loving father to Ranalda, Rowen & Damon; proud grandfather to Susannah & Anthony, he also leaves behind his dear sisters, Tina & Barbara, and their families. A wonderfully cultured true Gentleman, we will all miss him greatly, especially for his wisdom, kindness and worldly insight. Born in England, April 28, 1937. Studied Engineering Science at Oxford, '59. Neil also lived in Switzerland and France before returning to Canada. An avid traveller, both personally and professionally, his consultancy work and career with the U.N. improved lives in communities around the globe and won him the love and respect of many friends. A sought-after international authority on export trade it can be said that Neil literally "wrote the book" on food packaging. Amongst his other great passions were fine wines, classical music, Mozart in particular and singing. He was himself an active member of numerous choirs. A celebration of Neil's life will take place at the
