Born on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland, Neil travelled to Canada with his wife and daughter in 1969. After many years of work as a psych nurse at Riverview Hospital he retired in 2000 and moved to Quesnel B.C.
Many years were spent at Quesnel Lake where he built a cabin for himself and his growing family. A great day for Neil (fondly known as Shennir) would be driving in his Ford pickup with some great music. Summers spent with his grandkids at the lake made him the happiest.
Survived by his wife Mary Jane Mackay (Thom) of Quesnel, B.C., daughter Jackie (Alan) MacDougall, granddaughters Alynn & Beth MacDougall of Port Coquitlam, and son Neil Mackay (Heidi) grandchildren Neil Iain, Emily, Sydney and Abigaille Mackay of Quesnel, B.C.
A memorial service will be held at 1:00p.m. on October 20 at Clayton’s Funeral Home, 582 Front Street, Quesnel, B.C.
