In Loving Memory ~
Lifelong Rimbey resident, Neville is survived by his 3 daughters Marian; Lisa (Kelly and Dain and great-grandson Jacob); Iris (Samuel and Rachel); sister, Doris; and sister-in-law, Jean; and many nieces, nephews and their families.
Dad was predeceased by his first and only love of 51 years, Edith (Hawkings); his father (Henry) and mother (Amy Burchnall); sister (Enid); brothers-in-law (Gord, George).
Neville spent his lifetime in service to his family and community. His involvements were too numerous to list. Highlights include the following: proud WWII Air Force veteran; Member of Rimbey Legion (>76yrs); Rimbey town councillor (5 yrs); Rimbey mayor (11 yrs); Alberta MLA (4 yrs); chairman - many local, provincial and federal organizations; awarded Golden, Diamond and Platinum Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee medals for significant contributions and service to Canada, his community and fellow Canadians.
Dad lived life large right to the very end! His enthusiasm for life was infectious; his sense of humour keen. Most of all, beneath his outspoken external demeanor lay a kind soul guided by deep integrity and honor. He will be sorely missed.
A Memorial Service is scheduled for 2 PM, Saturday, September 16, at the Zion Lutheran Church, 4521 54 Ave, Rimbey; followed by a tea in the church hall (Rimbey Anglican Church Ladies presiding).
