Donald Keith McNeil
July 4 1937 - February 6 2013

Don McNeil was born to Mildred and Orval McNeil on July 4, 1937 in Rochester, New York.
He graduated from Williamson High School in 1955 and enlisted in the Air Force, where he served as a radio operator in Greenland and Grand Rapids, MN. Don spent his working career at Eastman Kodak, starting as a floor sweeper and eventually becoming an electrician. He lived in Greece for many years before moving to Williamson in 1980.
After retiring in 1992, Don and his wife Jan traveled all over the country in their RV and spent parts of each winter among friends in Myrtle Beach, SC. They served as co-presidents of their regional Holiday Ramblers RV Club chapter. Don’s other interests ranged from NASA to NASCAR.
He leaves his wife of 31 years, Janice (Shuster) McNeil; brother Gary (Carol) McNeil; three children from a previous marriage, including son Bruce (Terri) McNeil; and two step-children (Randy Cepuch and LaDonna Court). He is also survived by three grandchildren: Sean McNeil, Mollie McNeil and Jennifer (Joshua) Woodford; and great-granddaughter Joslin Woodford. 
Memorial donations in Don’s name can be made to Lifetime Assistance Hospice and Cancer Research Institute.
 

 

To the friends and family of Don McNeil:

Welcome to this Virtual Memorial, where we'll remember and celebrate Don on his birthday, July 4. Don didn't want a service, but he smiled at the idea of a memorial and we think he'd approve of these suggestions for the occasion.

1. WASH YOUR CAR.  Even if it isn't dirty.  (And no matter how big it is.)

2. MAKE A CUP OF COFFEE... then leave it there. Return a few hours later and microwave the stale coffee before drinking it. 

3. MOW THE LAWN. Even if it doesn't need it.

4. SIT ON THE PORCH AND EAT A WHOLE CAN OF NUTS. (A slice of pie is an acceptable substitute.)

5. WEAR A PLAID SHIRT.

6. DO SOMETHING USING A REMOTE CONTROL. Even if it doesn't need doing. (Especially if it doesn't need doing.)

7. PUT ANOTHER LOG ON THE FIRE. (OK to skip this one until winter.)

8. WALK AROUND WITH A SCREWDRIVER AND FIND SOMETHING TO FIX WITH IT. (Example: Screws on electrical outlet plates should always be straight up and down.)

9. HAVE A COOKIE FOR BREAKFAST.  And tuck a few spares in your pocket, just in case.

10. BE NICE TO JAN.

 

 

 

 

God Took Him To His Loving Home 

 God saw him getting tired, a cure was not to be.

He wrapped him in his loving arms and whispered “Come with me.” 

He suffered much in silence, his spirit did not bend. 

He faced his pain with courage, until the very end. 

He tried so hard to stay with us but his fight was not in vain, 

God took him to His loving home and freed him from the pain.
