Neil Paul Courneya Obituary

It is with great sadness the we announce the passing of our father Neil Paul Courneya. A beloved husband for 50 years to his wife Lillian (predeceased 2008), and an adoring partner to Gloria Coombes for almost 15 years. A wonderful father to Neil Jr and his wife Elli and Kerry and his wife Oralee.


Loving Grandfather to Tyler, Victoria and Matthew and Great Grandfather (GG) to the little drummer Greysen Courneya. A very special mention to Cheryl Coombes and Nancy Best for having Dad as part of the family and providing love and support to him for many years.


Dad was a teacher at Saunders Secondary School in London for over 25 years. He had many friends in the sports community playing hockey, baseball and golf for over 6 decades. He always wanted to move back home to Peterborough and did so in 2004 where he thoroughly enjoyed his baseball, golf and horseshoes.


A special note of thanks to the entire staff at Canterbury Gardens and especially the nursing staff who always made sure he was looked after. We’d also like to thank the staff at Peterborough Regional Hospital Centre for the wonderful care they provided for him.


He passed peacefully in his sleep with his beloved Blue Jays on the TV. Dad will be dearly missed by all.


If desired, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be greatly appreciated. Condolences may be shared and donations made by visiting www.ashburnhamfuneral.ca.
