Topic: Vale Neil McNeill
It is with sadness the Department acknowledges the passing of Mr Neil McNeill in Perth on 15 December 2016.
Neil had been a resident of Christmas Island and valuable member of the local community for over 35 years. Throughout most of this period, he had been extensively involved in the operations of the Port of Christmas Island. His wide range of skills and expertise were valued in various roles in the port including as Maintenance Manager and Port Security Officer. Neil made a significant contribution to not only the port but to the Christmas Island community throughout his life on-island.
I understand that Neil’s family will be on island this week for a commemoration.
I wish to extend the condolences of the Department’s staff to Neil’s family, friends and colleagues.
