Neil died peacefully surrounded by family after a courageous battle with cancer at the Montreal General Hospital on Friday October 28, 2011. He was the beloved husband of Sandra (née Thompson), and cherished father of Christopher (Lisa), Nathaniel and Brandon. Left to mourn are his father Jean Amyot, sister Jeannette Lirette and brother Laurent, his in-laws, Percy and Jean Thompson, his sisters-in-law Gayle Ferrill (Bob), and Brenda Raycraft (Darcy), and brother-in-law Glenn Thompson (Jackie). He is pre-deceased by his mother Marthe Amyot (2010) and brother-in-law Norman Lirette (2001). He will always be fondly remembered by his many nieces, nephews and friends. A special thank you to the nursing staff and physicians of the nineteenth floor at the hospital for their care and compassion. He loved his work at the STM, was an avid hockey fan, coach, and would never miss an opportunity for a joke. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be greatly appreciated. Visitation will be at the Collins Clarke MacGillivray White Funeral Home in Pointe-Claire (222 autoroute 20) on Wednesday, November 2, 2011 from 5 to 7 p.m., followed by a memorial service.
