Neil Albert Payne, formerly of Fogo, passed peacefully away at the Dr. L.A. Miller Centre in St. John’s on Saturday February 18th, 2017 at age 74. Neil is predeceased by his parents Cyril and Edna Payne, and is survived by his loving wife Sylvia of 49 years, his two sons Steve (Liz) and Mark (Caroline), his five grandchildren, Anna, Julia, Avery, Zevi and baby Oake Payne, his Uncle Stewart Payne of Corner Brook, and cousin Margaret Oake of Fogo. Neil was a strong, private man, who loved his family deeply, and was well loved by all. There was nothing his hands could not build or fix, and he and Sylvia enjoyed every minute of their retirement at their beautiful cabin on Thorburn lake, which they built together, and shared with their many special friends. We love you Neil – god bless on the next part of your journey! Special thanks to Dr. Andrew Hutton for your support, and to the wonderful, caring staff at Palliative Care. Visitation will be held at Carnell’s Funeral Home at 329 Freshwater Road on Monday, February 20th between 2-4pm and 7-9pm. The funeral will take place on February 21st at 11am at St. Mark’s Anglican Church, followed by internment at Portugal Cove Anglican Cemetery. Please, no flowers, by request of the family, but donations may be made to either Palliative Care at the Dr. L.A. Miller Centre, or to St. Mark’s Anglican Church.
