With broken hearts, the family shares Neil’s tragic passing on Tuesday, December 21, 2021 of Ilderton at the age of 39. Proudest dad in the entire world of his son Hunter Harvey. Cherished son of Janice (Leatham) and Stephen Harvey. Beloved grandson of Eleanor and the late Bob (2014) Leatham, and Bob and the late Stephanie (2020) Harvey. Much loved brother of Beth and Nick Cake, and Sean and Natalie Harvey. Fun uncle “Nene” of Aubrey, Theo, and Bennett Cake and Lincoln, and Cameron Harvey. Lovingly remembered by his girlfriend Lindsey Adams. Cherished by his many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. Adored by his 4 legged son Nash, Neil’s PTSD service dog.
Neil’s big, infectious smile was known to all whom he crossed paths with. As a proud paramedic in Lambton County, past training officer for Ilderton Fire Services, and an instructor in the paramedic program at Lambton College, Neil could always be found dedicating his time, energy, and knowledge to help his peers, students, and co-workers learn and grow to be the best they could be. But above all he loved to be spending time with his family, friends and most importantly, his son.
