Sorry to hear about Neil, I remember a lot of good times on the Fire Dept as well as the times you where in my office. Wish I could share some with you but on my way to Florida. Take care and cherish the memories.

We're happy to have caught up with Neil at the zoo this summer as he held a snake for our great grandson.
Our thoughts are with your family at this time

Neil was the one of the best most reliable drivers and great conversationalist employees that worked casual at Overland Transportation in the 80s and 90s. As a young terminal manager we connected in life and stories of the old days and good times. Every time I pass the Waynedale FD I always think of him. Great guy!!
