So sorry for your loss, Kris, Janet, Bob and family. He was a wonderful man and will be missed. As a childhood friend of Kris, I have fond memories of Mr. Neely (yes, I will always think of him as Mr. Neely), at BBQs, Christmas festivities, and other fun events.

I particularly, think of him when I watch hockey. He was Kris and Janet's number one fan and attended so many of their hockey games, even when they were adults. Such a great Dad!

Our deepest sympathies...
