Book of Memories of
Born and brought up in South Gloucestershire, England, Neil travelled extensively and lived all over the world. His thirst for life and infectious enthusiasm touched everyone he met.
To quote one of his friends ‘he was one of those rare people that once met, never forgotten. A big man in every sense, open, gregarious, generous, compassionate and of course, pretty outrageous at times’.
The range of ways he found to earn a living as he travelled were diverse and usually involved the great outdoors. Yachtsman, Western Australian lighthouse keeper, kilt wearing whisky importer in Switzerland, landscape gardener, care worker, Norwegian lumberjack to name a few.
This book has been created to allow those whose lives he touched to share their own memories of their times with Neil and read others memories of him as we all try to come to terms with his death.
Fair winds and following seas, you hopefully sail on in a better place.
