December 15, 1953 – July 17, 2020
It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Neil Weston Hemming in the early morning hours of July 17th, 2020. Neil will be remembered by his sister Betty (John Ruxton) of Woodstock, Ontario and brothers
Cliff (Tanya) of Mississauga, Ontario, Jeff (Nancy) of Paisley, Ontario, Ian of Courtenay, BC and Grant (Brenda) of Didsbury, AB and his wife Jacqueline. He is also survived by his son Colin and his three daughters Lori, Aimee & Emily and a multitude of grandkids.
Neil was born December 15th, 1953 at St. Josephs Hospital in Hamilton, Ontario to Marion and Eric Hemming and grew up in the Owen Sound area where he attended elementary and secondary school.
He worked for the family upholstery business in Owen Sound before relocating west in the 70s becoming the owner and permanent fixture of Aabco Pawn for more than 30 years in Kelowna and Cranbrook.
Neil was a valued member of various gun clubs in BC and shared his love for guns, hunting and outdoors with those who surrounded him. He will be greatly missed by his friends he acquired through Aabco and the various organizations he was a part of and the almost daily “safety meetings” he shared with his friends.
Neils family would like to thank Marks Memorial Funeral Home in Cranbrook for their outstanding care and kindness during their time of loss.
Due to gathering and travel restrictions, a memorial for Neil will be held at a later date.
