“I thought I made a mistake once, but I was wrong.” Neil Everson, king of Dad jokes, chronic dog-walker, loving husband, and father, passed away Thursday April 8th at 62 years old. The last two years of Neil’s life were guided through the caring staff in the Flamborough unit at Chartwell-Willowgrove Long Term Care. Neil worked at the City of Hamilton for 28 years, until he retired as Director of Economic Development in 2016. Neil was also a professional curler, a master golfer, and an owner of a prize-winning show dog (Neil also embellished from time to time). Neil had early-onset Alzheimer’s, and has finally found peace from his disease. Neil’s wife (Peggy) and sons Mark (Amanda) and Bill (Cy) ask that in honour of his memory, remove any shame in speaking openly about your mental health struggles, and do not be afraid to ask for help.
A cremation and private family service has taken place. Neil is now embarking on the longest dog-walk yet – so if a donation in his honour wishes to be made, please consider the Hamilton SPCA.
