It is with heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of our brother, uncle and dear friend, Brian Patrick Mac Neil age 68 at The Royal Alexandra Hospital, Edmonton, Alberta, while listening to his favorite tunes by Jimmy Buffett. Born in Sydney Mines, he was the son of the late Allan and Catherine(Brown) Mac Neil.

Brian graduated from Sydney Mines High School before leaving to work in Halifax and Toronto. He then headed west to Edmonton where he lived for the past forty seven years. He was a long time employee at EMCO, where he met many close friends and forged strong relationships over the years. He enjoyed travelling, golfing, and his Friday Night Happy Hour at "The Cabin". Brian enjoyed any opportunity he had to return home to visit family and friends. He was overjoyed to spend time with family and friends anytime they would visit Edmonton.

He was generous to his nieces and nephews and later to his grand nieces and nephews. They all liked to see Uncle Brian coming with his bags of presents and he always asked about them when he called home.

Brian is survived by his brother Hughie(Michelle) Mill Creek, David (Cindy) Sydney Mines, and Blake, Edmonton, Alberta. He is also survived by his sister, Maria(Gerry) Walsh Sydney Mines and sister in-law Marilyn Mac Neil (Pt Edward). He will be missed by all his nieces, nephews, cousins, co-workers, neighbors and golfing buddies.

We want to express our sincere gratitude to the doctors, nurses, physical therapists in the Intensive Care Unit as well as Unit 33 at The Royal Alexandra Hospital in Edmonton. A very special thank you to Brian's best friend of forty seven years Gary Stobbart who was by Brian's side for the last four months, visiting Brian and always keeping us informed about Brian's progress and making it possible for us to have video chats with Brian. ( We Don't know what we would have done without you Gary.)

Brian was predeceased by both his maternal and paternal grandparents, James and Lavinia Brown and Hugh and Elizabeth Mac Neil. Brian was also predeceased by his brother Allan.

Cremation has taken place. A celebration of life will take place at a later date.

We will miss hearing your quiet and dry sense of humor! R.I.P. Brian.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
How do you know Brian Patrick Mac Neil?
We are sorry for your loss.
Help others honor Brian's memory.
