A wonderful charismatic gentleman full of energy and interest in others. When we met, we had obscure and searching discussion about architecture, he would find facts from his memory that amazed and bamboozled in equal measure, I always had a smile in his presence. A joy. I will miss him, I will miss him at Lodge. Rest well Neville in the Grand Lodge above.
A wonderful mason. Neville was one of the most vocal supporters of the university scheme embracing its membership and demographic with no qualms. His support of the lodge was without restraint. His keen mind and intellect would entertain and educate anyone no matter the subject. Rest well.
Neville was one of the first people to welcome me into freemasonry greeting me at my interview he put me at ease and made me feel most welcome in 3911. He was a man full of energy traversing the country on a weekly basis but always finding time to be at meetings and rehearsals and rarely missed our social events. He will leave a hole in the lodge and will be sorely missed. Rest well Neville.
Neville was a great and wonderful man, full of joy and wisdom. He was a real beacon for our lodge and will definitely be remembered and greatly missed. Rest well Neville in the Grand Lodge Above.
I didn't really know him as a Freemason but had some contact during his clinical career. As has been said he was always energetic and enthusiastic - a force of nature.
Neville became a joining member of Windsor Castle Chapter No. 771 in January 2019, he was always the perfect gentleman cheerful and willing to get involved. He had the vitality of a much younger man and a great enthusiasm to enjoy life. I for one was pleased to have known him.
Rest in Peace Neville.
Neville was a lovely, welcoming and knowledgeable man, with whom I enjoyed illuminated conversations on numerous subjects. I was very sad to hear of his passing and I will miss him but be glad to have met him.
Thank you for the lovely obituary and commnts about Neville (my father). Lodge was such an important part of his life, he looked forewards to every event. We often spent time practicing his 'lines' for lodge - his memory amazed me, far better than mine! It has been heartwarming to read these comments, and know that his character was loved and will be missed by so many.
I am very sorry to learn (belatedly) of Neville's passing. I've just found one of my old working address books. He was my expert witness of choice for work-related 'upper limb disorders' - and anything of an orthopaedic nature for claims in his neck of the woods. I was a Defendant's personal injury lawyer for many years, and met Nevill professionally during the 1990s when I acted for Courtauld's Textiles. He was delighted one day when we all turned up at court (can't remember where) and the case either settled or was adjourned - and there was a Yorkshire cricket match going on not too far away - and off he went. On another occasion at Newcastle U-T he diagnosed my tennis elbow, though I declined his kind offer of an injection! RIP Neville, it was a pleasure to have you as one of my experts.
