Neil Edward Fawdry
June 1, 1943 – June 15, 2016
With great sadness we announce that Neil has lost his long and brave battle with cancer. He is survived by his wife Lorraine and his children Cori (Steele) and Brent and his grandchildren Hailey, Jared, Kyra, Paige, and Tessa. He is also survived by his brothers Eric and Glenn.
Neil was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, friend, uncle, coach, volunteer, “Mr. Fixit”, and mentor to many.
Neil was born in Nanaimo and moved to Victoria in 1964 where he worked in the shipyards before starting his long career with BC Tel.
Neil was passionate about sports cars and was an active member and past president of the Victoria MG Club.
Neil and Lorraine moved to Sooke in 2001 where Neil became an active volunteer with the Sooke Salmon Enhancement Society.
The family would like to thank the amazing health care workers at the BC Cancer Agency, Royal Jubilee Hospital, and Victoria General Hospital.
Please join us to celebrate Neil’s life on Monday June 27th from 1:00pm to 4:00pm at the Royal Colwood Golf Course. We would love to see the parking lot filled with classic cars!
In lieu of flowers the family would appreciate donations to the BC Cancer Foundation or the Alzheimer’s Society of BC.
