Harrison, Neil F., PhD



Dr. Neil F. Harrison (aged 69) passed away at UNM Hospital in Albuquerque, NM USA, at a rather inconveniently late time, on 21/5/2017; sadly, his greatest wish, to "visit" the grave of a certain M. Thatcher, remains unfulfilled. A true City Blue, he was transported to the hospital after enduring a pointless Manchester derby, and passed 10 hours after witnessing, with both pain and pleasure, a ruthless trouncing of Watford FC.

Although he was universally acknowledged to be a contrary, anti-social git, he was also kind of a softie, and he will be greatly missed by his many Australian, UK and Canadian friends, as well as by his long-time partner in crime, Patricia Wall-Watlington, and the biggest and most beautiful dog in the world, Dopey the 3rd.

There will be no formal services, but please remember Neil fondly next time you hoist a pint.
