James Hector "Teddy" Mcneil

It is with great sadness we the family of James "Teddy" McNeil announce his passing on June 15th at home. Born in Glace Bay on August. 12, 1928, he was the son of the late James and Margaret (McIntyre) McNeil.

Teddy spent 25 years working at Canada Wire and Cable in Toronto, ON. His love
of family and his faith were the very essence of his being. His love of music was a passion he followed throughout all his years, entertaining family and friends with his beautiful voice. He always longed to return to Cape Breton and was fortunate to live the last half of his life in beautiful Lingan, NS. He served his community through volunteering at St. Joseph's Parish, Lingan; St. Vincent de Paul Society and Maple Hill Manor. Teddy was affectionately known as Papa and Big Papa to his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Finally, he recently said to Doris, his wife of almost 70 years: I don't have words to tell you how much I love you."

Teddy is survived by his loving wife Doris (Wilson), his children Ron (Sue), Gail (Joe), Wanda and Darlene (Ronnie); grandchildren Jennifer, Lee, Joshua, Simone, Geoffrey, Kelly, Amy, Jason, Anthony, Luke, Amanda; great-grandchildren Johanna, Connor, Shea-Lynn , Issac, Emily, Jackson, Carter, Riley, Chase, Madison and Oliver.
