David Cameron McNeil

Passed on: January 21st, 2018

Is it with heavy hearts, that we announce the passing of our father, David Cameron McNeil, 82. David passed away peacefully January 21, 2018 at the Northside General Hospital surrounded by family. He was born on July 22, 1935. He was the son of the late Angus and Gladys (Almon) McNeil. In 1935, David married the love of his life of 62 years, Elizabeth (Stubbert) and together they raised a beautiful family.
David is survived by his five children, Kevin (Brenda), Bobby (Debbie), Corinne (Bobby) Foster, Marie (Reg) Roland and Brenda (Jody) Lavery; ten grandchildren, Jason, Kyle, Erin, Tyler, Ashley, Daniel, Natasha, Melissa, Sarah and Emma; three great-grandchildren, Kaden, Leah and Sawyer. Also surviving are his in-laws, Florence McNeil, John Stubbert, Louis Stubbert, Clifford Stubbert, Cavelle Young and Sarah Roberts.
David was quite a character who liked to tell “tall tales”. He will be dearly missed on Alder Point Road where he made his daily rounds to share his “gift of gab”. Dad had a lifelong passion with detailing/selling used cars. Besides selling cars, he had many other employment experiences which include Stevedore at the CN, Owner/Operator of McNeil’s grocery in Alder Point, various construction positions including maintenance during the building of the PEI Confederation Bridge. Dad enjoyed his weekly trips to Halifax with “the boys” to grab the latest in car bargains.
Besides his parents, he is predeceased by his siblings, Willie, Irene, Nathan, Gordon, Earl, Frances, Cameron and James.
Visitation for Dad will be held Wednesday, January 24, 2018 from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. at J.M. Jobes Funeral Home, Main St., Sydney Mines. A celebration of life will take place on Thursday, January 25, 2018 at 10:30 a.m. at St. Anne’s Church, Alder Point with Father Peter McLeod officiating. Reception will be held at the Alder Point Hall following the service.
In lieu of flowers donations in David’s memory may be made to a charity of choice.

A very special thank you to Dr. Philip Curry, his secretary Michelle, Dr. Michele MacKeough, his secretary Louise, and the extraordinary nurses on Five East at the Northside General for their unending kindness, compassion and care for our dad.
We will always remember your kind heart and gentle soul. You will live on forever in the retelling of your “tall tales”.
