    Thinking of you at this difficult time, Helena and your boys (Barry and Ronnie), their wives and your Grandchildren! We all spent a good deal of time together in our younger days! Neil taught me how to drive a snowmobile and motor cycle, and was like a brother to me!

    I first knew Neil and Helena when I joined the Rideau Valley region of the HASC car club in 1990. They always made me feel welcome and ‘one of the gang’. I am very sorry for Neil’s passing and please extend my condolences to Helena, Barry, Ronnie and their families at this difficult time.

    Our sympathies to Helena and family. Neil always had a big smile and friendly word whenever we saw him at the old car club meetings. Helena and Neil were good friends to my parents, Blair and Laura Prior. So sad to hear of Neil’s passing.
