Neil Andrews - R.I.P.

.

Neil John Andrews . . .

Passed away suddenly on October 26, 2008 at the Toronto Western Hospital in his 78th year. Neil was recovering from knee surgery when taken by a stroke.

Much loved and sadly missed by sister Joan Lomax, nieces Lori Hollingsworth (Bob), Linda Lomax-Clarridge, and Leslie Lomax (Robert Robinson), great niece Jennifer Clarridge and great nephews Dana and Dale Hollingsworth.

Neil graduated from Ryerson University, class of '54 Radio and TV arts programme, retired after more than 35 years with a distinguished career at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. He was a lifelong member of the Queen City Yacht Club (QCYC) on the Toronto Islands and more recently the passionate and talented publisher/editor of the INA (International Nonsuch Association) quarterly publication, UPDATE.

Neil had been nominated and elected to Life Membership in Great Lakes Nonsuch by 47 of his INA fellows at the organizational meeting in March 2007. He was an active member of Lake Ontario Nonsuch when it was vital in the '80s and early '90s. He took over editing UPDATE from Jon Ayers (& Bud Turner?) and did exemplary work while also serving as a Director of the INA Board.

His memorial service was held October 30, near Toronto. He will be remembered by family, many close friends, colleagues, and friends of Nonsuch around the world.

Donations to Princess Margaret Hospital or Women's College Hospital would be appreciated by the family.


(Some of the messages at the bottom, below, were posted Oct 27, 28, & 29 either on the INA list or the funeral home condolence page and were copied here once this gallery was created after Neil's memorial service. These messages are gathered here for Neil, all of Neil's family, Neil's many friends, and all who honour Neil Andrews)
