Neil was an IT department dream. He could get you from blue screen to up and running in no time at all. His last employer before medically retiring was with Janzten, Inc. the bathing suit company of Portland. Neil spent his time playing guitar and doing anything that related to computers, especially playing video games. He loved gardening and God’s beautiful earth. Neil also observed the stars and planets, Saturn being his favorite. Neil earned an Associates of Arts Degree from Mt. Hood Community College. His favorite class was drama; acting was his dream. He will be buried at sea off the Oregon Cast with a private family ceremony. He is missed by his family and friends. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the local Roseburg Mercy Medical Hospice.
